The C&NW Historical Society is looking at possible models to produce in the

of #18 appear to show lettering for ballast service.

cars purchased in 1957. Again, we have a couple of scans posted by Jim

Sands. We are looking for additional photos of these cars showing the end

lettering and better shots of the side lettering. Did these have Viking

repainted (no lettering) by Boone & Scenic Valley since this photo was

Please feel forward this request as appropriate. If you have some Ft. Dodge

slides or photos that show cars in these series, please get in touch with
