Re: Well Packed Lump Coal

I had a similar if not the same problem. It's fairly common with links in the mailing lists also. For me anyhow. You see the posted link, but only part of it looks like a link ( blue print ). The rest of the link doesn't look like part of it ( black print ). When you try and copy and paste the entire link, only the part in blue appears after you paste. That's ok though, just minimize the page you pasted to before hitting ENTER. I then copy and paste ONLY the missing part ( black print ) and add it to the URL in the page I minimized, thus getting the whole web address I'm trying to link to. THEN you hit ENTER to access the desired link.

VGN 1870, from VGN 1000-2499, Class H-14. It's interesting to find a VGN car that had not been renumbered, reclassed, and repainted in N&W, much less surviving in full VGN paint into the 1970s.

Richard,

I saw that pic, and a couple more, one of each
variety. I'm currently wading through all 21,000 pics
on the site. Some really incredible structures,
trackwork, and cars to be seen there.

Many of the photos don't have a caption, so a search
wont find them.

Same with the American Memory project at the Library
of Congress. I have no idea when I'll be done going
through those.

Fred,

I've got to admit, it looked awfully pretty to be a

Yes, Atlas released an O scale Class H21A in conjunction with Middle

I'm completely missing your logic here, Ed. How does publishing an
expensive soft cover book of previously released material pay back
subscriptions of former subscribers, or for that matter, authors of
material for which they were never compensated? Hundman has made no
move to honor his commitment to either group.

That's why I asked the question. But maybe it contains articles or
drawings that Bob prepared that hadn't been printed yet in MM.

Bob copied a lot of drawings that were in the original Simmons Boardman
freight car cyclopedias.

The book is a little pricy for a soft cover book, particluarly one

I recall that I heard that some of his previous reprint books also
contain some original material.

Re: VGN H21's

Atlas has an H21?

I can easily point to many bogus combinations of paint scheme <--> model
from Atlas. Or maybe that's the semantic ploy, that the "scheme" is authentic
even if the combination of model and scheme is not.

but Atlas has been offering a VGN lettering scheme for the joint Middle Division

Re: Stockcar book

Anthony Thompson <thompson@...>
 

If this publication follows previous Hundman "collection" books, it will reproduce the magazine articles exactly (errors and all, even if errors were acknowledged in the "Letters" column after publication). Drawings likewise will still have any errors characteristic of their original publication. But it can be very convenient to have the MM articles on a particular subject all in one place.

I can't say it's definitive (we all know that manufacturers, by and large, have to amortize their development and production costs), but Atlas has been offering a VGN lettering scheme for the joint Middle Division PRR H21, and Atlas CLAIMS they will do only authentic schemes.

"It's an open question as to whether or not [any leased PRR Class
H21A hoppers] were ever lettered for Virginian. Yes, Bowser did
them, but there's also been information that the lettering scheme was
(nicely done but) conjectural."

On page 45-46 of Teichmoeller's Pennsylvania Railroad Steel Open
Hopper Cars, John states that"...in 1998 Bowser issued a Virginian
leased car based purely on a conjectural lettering diagram I did as a
Saturday night entertainment which apparently bent some of the
prototype police's rods." I'd say that's conclusive information that
the Bowser VGN cars are conjectural.

"It's also been said that because they were on Virginian property
entirely during the war, that photos are going to be tough to find if
they exist at all."

I'd keep my eyes open. After all, we didn't have photographic proof
of the cars leased to the N&W when John's articles first appeared in
Model RailroaDING, but since then, several have surfaced in various
collections including one car (not the primary subject of the photo)
after return to the PRR.

Do you know of any company source material (memoranda, car records,
etc.) detailing the lease? They'll give a more complete picture than
just the ORER listings at least.
