Re: B&O twin offsets (was Illinois Coal industry)

Tim O'Connor

Ben, according to older emails from Chris Barkan, Ed Hawkins, and
yourself, the Athearn twin is close for modeling B&O classes N-35,
N-41 and N-44 -- with the caveat that there are some differences on
the ends, and Duryea cushion underframes. (But then how likely are
we EVER to get a plastic twin offset with a Duryea underframe??)

Tim O'Connor

In which plane of existence? I challenge you to produce said RTR B&O
hoppers - outside of the Class N-17 cars offered by Intermountain, there
aren't any on the market. Kadee won't offer B&O as one of their offset
twins because the great majority of the B&O's cars had Duryea cushion
underframes and end detail differences from their model. The huge Class
N-12 and subclasses aren't available in any form.
