Re: Trucks On SP Gondolas

The Pacific Limited G-50-12s' do have the rivets so are correct for that
class. They also have the Dalman trucks. is also Pat is noted for doing
very good research and producing prototype models, witness his many
versions of the 1932 ARA or his multiple versions of the NYC USRA rebuilds.
Too bad he is another victim of the times and we have probably seen the
last of his black boxes.

are distinguished by a row of rivets on the side sheets where they join
to the sloped part. IIRC the Pacific Limited cars don't have that and
are therefore G-50-9 or -10.
