The point is that you & Ed & Tom M & Richard H & Tony T, et al are busy creatingPlease tell me what landfill the brass steam locomotive models are going to.......
It's not about numbers. It's never been about numbers. Vendors come andDo you mean correcting the PS-0 box car terminology thing?? (-:
Why would you build a shelf layout for breaking in models if you didn't have a larger
layout to run them on??????? I'm puzzled.
Seriously......... What changes, if any, would you like to see us make to RP CYC? We're
thinking of more (shorter) articles. More color is out since there aren't that many good
color photos from the '30s, '40s, and even '50s. Plus we can't afford the extra printing
cost. (I bet Ted lost his shirt). The problem with shorter articles is that they tend to grow
in length. Ed and I are constantly fighting space (page number) limitations. I started work
on a "short" article on Milwaukee ribbed-side box cars and it grew in length to encompass
75 pages. Ugh!!! A simple article on lightweight passenger cars (a subject you guy's
hate), took up an entire CYC. Yeah, I know, a bunch of wasted pages.
