What is the association if any to the NYO&W or did they just "borrow" their logo?

Clark,

You had better luck than I with Micro-Scale decals. I had an S-scale set of Micro-Scale for a Wescott & WInks refrigerator car. True, I had purchased the decals a few years ago. I put one segment after another into the water only to see them disintegrate. Not very far into theprocess I stopped and managed to salvage enough for one side. I hope I can use that side to make a copy onto decal copy paper.

Dear Friends,

I also got my replacements today. I was late sending in my old parts, so I did not have a long wait - I just got lucky.

Martin truly is a class act. Not only did he send the "Car Assingment Restrictions" decal, but he included a handwritten note that said, "I'm sorry for the error."

Hi All,

My questions are for the following modified 1923 ARA type cars built in 1928 & 1930. They were series 75000-75499 & 75500-75999. I would like to know if/when they received the large Black & white herald? What color paint would be appropriate? What are the appropriate trucks? Also
any other changes such as brakes, roofs, etc. My time line is 1953-1955.

Thank You, Jeff Drennan

I just amazed myself. I'm decaling a CB&Q 35000 series box car with Micro Scale decals. I have a RMJ with a photo, plus the CBQHS bullitin on those style box cars. I still managed to put the first slogan on the wrong side of the car! And applied a coat of Mircosol. It was when I was going to apply the second dose of Micrsol that I niticed the screw up. I was able to flood the area with water and lift the slogan up with the tip of my knife blade. I transferred the decal to my dish of water to straighten it out then poured it onto the other side of the car. Whew!

some sort of protective plate on the outboard end of the mounting?
From the earliest application of AB brakes in the mid-1930s through
the Santa Fe's adoption of Shock Control underframes ca. 1958, it was
standard Santa Fe practice to mount the air brake reservoirs
crosswise rather than lengthwise, as was most common in the railroad
industry. This practice applied not only to box and auto/furniture
cars but to reefers, solid-bottom gondolas, etc. (A few other
railroads also mounted reservoirs crosswise, at least for several
years; Canadian National and Grand Trunk Western come to mind.) I
have never heard a satisfactory explanation for this practice, but it
was followed by the Santa Fe whenever possible. The only exceptions,
during the period covered by this list, were cars like the Bx-26 and
Bx-34 classes which had Duryea underframes and early cars with Shock
Control underframes, both of which had center sills located far
enough apart to preclude transverse mounting of the reservoir - as
well as, of course, drop bottom gondolas, where transverse air
reservoirs would have interfered with the drop doors.

When reservoirs were mounted crosswise, the inner ends were mounted
to brackets attached to the center sill and the outer ends were
supported by simple pressed steel supports attached to the side sill,
whose inward facing flanges were positioned under the outer ends of
the reservoirs (always with the two-mounting-bolt ends of the
reservoirs facing outward). These supports had the effect of
protecting the reservoirs from accidental damage, so no other
protective devices were applied.
Does anyone know of a drawing or close-up photo of this mounting?
I'm sending you a photo off-list which should be helpful.
