Mike and Ed,
Thanks for the 47' length on the DL&W soda ash hopper, and yes Ed, I
see I made a numerical error in my original post :-[ 18000-18099 is
more like it!
I am also wondering about the listed 12' height on these
cars.....to top of running board?
Ed, are the drawings at the Museum of Transportation in St Louis
available at the museum? I will be going there this coming summer for
the S scale convention.
Thanks again gents!
