I'd sure be inlined to peruse their images more if they weren't so tiny.

Thanks!

Hi List Members,

Is the car in the image below a CP 'minibox'?

More info can be found at the crazy long link below (I have no idea if it
will work, being it is so long!)

Yes.  The giveaways are the radial roof, Dreadnaught ends, single rows of rivets joining the side sheets, and the long "tabs" at the bolsters.

They are very good about putting photos or negatives on a light table in front of you if you can go visit. I've been able to do so for 30 years - a very nice collection, and tolerable duplication charges.

Not especially relevant to this list, but some of these lasted into the 1980's
in company service (not stationary; used to move company materials).

Great! I'm VERY likely to travel a couple thousand miles to Vancouver just
to look at the collection.

Thanks!

Ya, I get that. I keep track of such places so if my family vacation takes me close, I can think about adding a day here and there. Usually it is preserved rolling stock - there is a bunch of it I'd like to photo and measure in Ontario and Quebec. Slowly but surely, I've either had a chance to visit or had a friend do it for me.

If you find something in their catalogue that might be interesting and want to have it checked out in person before ordering a copy, let me know. I'd be able to drop in to the library and look. Even to let them know they have mislabeled a photo of Nash cars as Chev's!
