If you want a copy of my measurements for the 1948-era car, send me a private message with your snail mail address and I will send you a copy (3 pages). I even have a couple of detailed photos of the brake equipment under the car.
I wonder whether the PS drawings for the 1927-built cars still exist. Would like to build one of them. My old efforts were bad - used brass Drednaught ends, but did not reverse them! Only finished one car, then sold them all after hearing they were in captive service. Became interested in them again after seeing one of them down here!
Incidentally, I saw/measured that car back in 1980! Thought it was only 10 years ago! How time flies when having fun!!
