Re: new Accurail cars


Moscow is in southwestern Wisconsin, in Iowa County, more or less
between Blanchardville and Hollandale. But the railroad between those
two places (in the era of this group a branch of, I think, the
Milwaukee Road) bypassed Moscow. (Blanchardville and Hollandale are
on a branch of the Pecatonica River, but Moscow's up a side valley.)

One of the box cars in my club's operating roster is marked for the
KGB. The car pocket says "return when empty to Moscow WI"

The CNW gondola is dead-on accurate
Dead-on accurate? Probably not, and we won't know for sure until
see the model's ends. If they follow the AAR recommended practice
drawings, they'll be pre-war Dreadnaught ends, whereas that C&NW 70

cars and other postwar versions all had Improved Dreadnaught ends.
