Thanks Dennis. I appreciate it - and the advice. If its any consolation, I'm working on it. Age old problem - how to go broad enough and deep enough with a library! $$$ and time. I find it hard to believe, but I only just discovered the Official Guide this year (but that topic doesn't relate to freight cars...).
