Bruce, I have no suitable photos of an R-30-12-16 with Bettendorf
underframe. However, I'm sending you off-list a 4/48 photo of an
R-30-13-16 with twin-center-sill underframe which still had KC air
brakes. To model this car, you will have to rework the underframe by
using a Tichy u/f instead of the R/C u/f.
So I have to ask <G> - if the Tichy car is an R-40-2/4 and we're talking R-30-12-16, what
is the difference between the 30 and 40 ton cars with built-up u/f? I can that the R-40-2/4
series appears to have different trucks from the R-30-12/13 series T-section trucks. Is it
just the trucks?
