Hi John and list;

The December 2001 issue of Model Railroader has an article by Marty
McGuirk entitled "Troop Sleepers" that includes a set of drawings by
Harold Russell; there are two exceptional underbody views (two
different step treatments = two different views) that ought to tell
you all you need to know to detail your car. E-mail off-list if you
would like me to send a photocopy.

Jim, John,

Bad news/good news. The drawings used for the troop sleeper articles were originally drawn for an article on the NYC express car conversion. So the bad news is that these drawings are incorrect for the troop sleeper and troop kitchen cars as built and should not have been published as such. The good news for John is that they are PRECISELY what he was looking for.
