Re: Help w/FGE/WFE/BRE truss rod article

Don Worthy

Hey Guys, I wanted to let ya'll know that I've been able to get copies of "Railway Prototype Cyclopedia Vol. 12 and Prototype Railroad Modeling Vol.1. Both are really nice. I haven't been able to get copies of any of the mags that were listed, yet.
But the two that I've got are really good and will help so much.
Thanks to Frank and Pieter for the list of books!!!!
I hope to get started on building a string of FGE cars before too long.
Thanks again guys

I wish someone would point me to some info on their Wood side, steel
underframe cars or the steelsided icebunker cars. I've seen some old
film made on the Central of Georgia and the FGE cars were 85% of
several trains. The rest of the cars were ART cars. I could see the
herald fairly plain but, couldn't make out car numbers or data of any

all from the Kalmbach on-line magazine index.
Note that WFE used the same designs as FGE, being an affiliated company.
