Re: 4th gon in the saga

My untrained eyes see the Speedwitch large WABASH lettering being
very close to the correct 18" in height, while the F&C set measures
21 inches.

Clark, All,

I checked the Speedwitch Wabash gondola decals vs. the F&C decals
last night. The Speedwitch decals are appox. six inches shorter in
height than the F&C decals supplied with the gondola kit. I
discount using the SW set yet, as you should compare the F&C decals
with a prototype photo.

Anyway, thought you'd like to know. My Westerfield DS car with the
SW decals turned out quite nice IMHO.

Hey Clark,

I'm halfway through building the same F&C car, although I'm doing
the ACL version. You're right--it's a nice car and the side/end
castings are pretty nice.

As for decals, I recently used a set of Speedwitch decals to
a Wabash DS box car. Ted offers a Wabash set for the 65' mill gon
and the large WABASH lettering fits the Westerfield box just
and isn't as bulky as the Westerfield set.

I'll do a TLAR (That Looks About Right) check with Ted's set on
ACL car and let you know if that set could work for the 'Bash car.
