-----Original Message-----Uh, well, I'll stick up for the DeGolyer. Several years ago when I was collecting drawings for the
ERIE 0-6-0 drawings I did (published in the ELHS magazine, The Diamond) I had collected a large
number of drawings of parts and bits, much of it from CSRRM. But I was missing the tender tank. One
night, the email address to the curator of the drawings there appeared in clickable form in an
email. "What the hell?" I thought, and sent in a request, a very specific request, giving number
series, railroad, etc., etc.
No email reply. I thought, "Well, THAT didn't work." But about a week later, a snail mail reply
showed up, and they indeed had what I wanted. Price was reasonable, and quick enough, the check was
written and sent.
I did think it a tad odd that the reply came by USPS, when I'd sent in an email, but I'm not here to
I do second the recommendation that California State RR Museum is a great institution.
