Subject: [STMFC] summer 2004 "Locomotive

On page 26 there's a photo of an "all steel"
rebuilt box car
(70,000- 73,000 series? with an original wood
door) which has
a gold Erie diamond herald. The photo is dated
Nov. '46.
Anyone disagree?
No, Ed, I have to agree with you. The diamond is
completely different than the lettering, known to
be white. That's the "modern" diamond, too,
though the smaller size. Good catch!

On p. 48 there's a photo showing a LV. 40 ft.
hopper. Does anyone know of good photos of these
cars besides
the Standard Steel builders photo from Keith
Retterer and the
photo in the Wales collection? Any ideas on how
to model the
corrugated hopper doors in HO?
Low lighting levels. 8^)
