Gosh, Russ, I've NEVER lived in that area. But I do visit every
October nowadays, so in fact I do find it helpful to discuss what's
available at Martin's meeting.
I bet you'd enjoy a visit to the Naperville meeting some time.

And I've been to Naperville but once, and still, I have several Sunshine kits, bought via the US
Mails. Try it, Russ. You sends them da check, and (admittedly a Very Long Time later) dey sends
you da kits. Verks goodt.

Russ,

My point is that Sunshine makes a very nice model of what you want.

Bill,

Not wanting to sound overly sarcastic but I left
the Chicago area in 1979. The fact that something
was available at Naperville last Fall does not help
very much.

I purchased two Sunshine kits at Naperville last fall.

The series that I can not understand the absence of is
the NYC 628xxx - 642xxx Gons. Even at the start of my
career they were the most common Gon seen. Didn't any
other roads have Gons of this same design?

Painting the NYC's would be a breeze. Start out with
grimy black, put on initials and numbers and then
another light coat of grimy black.

We have talked a lot about chalk marks in the past.
These cars often had the Light Weight highlighted
with chalk.

In the first sentence, replace "NYC and P&LE" with your
favorite
road, and it's a sentiment practically everyone on this list
will
share. <g>
