Re: Rivets

There was an article on rivets in Mainline Modeler, probably the April 1997
one by Gene Green. If you don't have that issue, I'll look it up for you.

During the early 1900's, the PRR used a rivet that went into a 13/16"
hole. Does anyone know what size the Rivet was, or is?
Of all the drawings of the "sills" that I have had a chance to see,
there is NO reference to size of rivet. By 1950's standards, the rivet
would be 1/32" smaller than the hole. Doesn't seem that there would be
that many nonstandard rivets made.
