FW: [nvmrc] check out National Steel Car's lively website

It appears that National Steel Car's PR dept has too much money.
Nevertheless, it's an interesting website; STMFC folks should try the
"Heritage" link.

Not exactly what we'd expect from a railroad car builder.
Check out this Canadian company's website; it's quite entertaining.

Hi Jeff,

Maybe its my browser, but I have no idea how to find the "Heritage" link for the site - the only button my browser (IE) sees is the "enter site" button - which produces a video of a spinning welded hopper, a maple leaf logo and then a woman in a suit looking at the camera. Then nothing. Do you have to wait for something after the speaker finishes, or is there some trick to viewing this???

Rob,
Mine comes up with a choice in the lower left corner, "SKIP INTRO", so I
did, then there were several choices.

The website is almost an art piece. And the cars depicted in the 360
degree views look like undec plastic models. Good entertainment, but
too modern for STMFC!

Rob,



I don't know. Perhaps you could try going to the Adobe web
site (adobe.com) and updating your version of Adobe Flash Player.

We're wandering way off topic, but I heard Sheriff Brock's out of town . . .

I don't think those are physical models. Those are digital models. You can make digital models of
STEAM FREIGHT CARS, too . . .
