Hi Brian, Dave, et al.,
 
I am aware of these buttons, but they do not function as advertised with any of my email servers.  (In addition to WLM and TWC/Spectrum, I also have the current MS Mail.)  Sometimes I can decipher the sender’s email address when it shows up, as Brian’s does, in the for, “[address]@...” by substituting “@” for the “=” sign and dropping the “@groups.io,” but I have occasionally had problems with that too.  This problem is common to all Groups.IO lists to which I belong.
 
I think the bottom line here is that those looking for a direct/private reply need to provide their email addresses.
 
Pax,

Fred,

Thanks for the reminders. I will incorporate most into the final version. I am not too concerned about some problems you cite with the PK2000 gondolas. They are reasonably close for most modelers. I will mention the floors and the trucks. I had forgotten about them (my own 6501 is on National B-1 trucks).

I have both Andy's boxcar and stock car, but I decided to skip them because they are so rare. I'm already tantalizing people with a lot of stuff that is hard to find.

Didn't Sunshine do the 19001 boxcars?

Looks like the text will cover another page, but so be it.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

Andy Carlson once offered resin casting for the 15001-Pullman built box car and the 75801 stock car.

News:
- there's a WP reefer coming this spring from RCW; all variations can be build from that kit, incl tks and Speedwitch decal set.

Hi Mike, Chuck, et al.,
 
Chuck is right, and it is not just a Firefox thing.  I use Windows Live Mail primarily,but I also have have TWC/Spectrum email.  It appears to be a Groups.IO phenomenon and it appears with both of my servivers.  I think that folks looking to sell, buy or otherwise want private responses need to include their email address in their message.  One way to do that is to include it in the signature block as I routinely do.  See below.
 
My two cents.

     Can't speak for other applications, but Mac Mail allows you to select the sender's name in the email you received,  and choose "reply to sender." Works every time.

It's possible (I hesitate to say easy) to respond privately by simply going to the groups.io page, and replying though that interface.  There is a green Reply to Group button on the lower left, but this can be toggled by the Private icon to the lower left so that only the original poster will receive your message..

BTW, I think Matthew is blameless here.  He did say "Please PM me for a full list...".  In case anybody isn't aware, PM means "private (or personal) message".

I love this Ambroid car (one of my layout as we speak), but have always wondered about the passenger diaphragm on one end.  Were these cars designed/equipped for occasional operation on passenger trains, or was the diaphragm there to provide protected entrance and egress if the car was coupled  -parked or underway-  to a related bunk/dormitory/WU official car?

Bill,

Not a D&H maven but there was an article in November 1987 RMC on the prototype with a plan by Chuck Yungkurth showing all three ends, and the with an underframe plan. The December issue the same year had a how to model the cars article.

Inspired by an item on the Speedwitch Blog (http://prototopics.blogspot.com/2019/02/wordy-wednesday-delaware-hudson-36-foot.html) I retrieved my F&C kit #3406 and have pretty much finished building and detailing the superstructure. I am stuck however doing the underframe as I am not confident how to proceed. There are some parts that I think are meant to be Crossbearers but the instruction as usual are not helpful.

I am curious if there are any D&H mavens here that may have information on the prototype. In his blog post Ted Culotta said he thought there may have been a RMC article by John Nehrich. Can anyone verify this? I plan to post model photos soon.

The Nehrich construction article, featuring an extensive kitbash of the MDC 36 ft DS boxcar, appeared in the December 1987 issue of RMC.  He followed drawings by Chuck Yungkurth published in the November 1987 issue of RMC.

Group,

I have for sale about 100 RTR freight cars from the steam and transition era. Most are Red Caboose, Intermountain, Proto, Athearn, & other brands like this. There are also some brass examples, resin kits, and wood passengers cars in the mix. Lastly, there are a few locomotives included in this sale. Most of it is surplus to my collection which centers around western and midwestern roads such as ATSF, SP, and D&RGW.

Most models include Kadee couplers and metal wheels, unless otherwise mentioned. Some have been weathered while others are new in box. Many of these are missing their original boxes but prices are reasonable and large volume discounts are offered. Buyer pays shipping and PayPal is preferred. Please PM me for a full list in PDF for as it's far too long to post here. Thanks you all, and enjoy your day!
