Bill Welch document

I am looking for Bill Welch's Plastic Freight Car Builders, Part I.  Could someone please send me a copy.

Thanks.

I have a number of Bill Welch PDF files but they are huge - much too large for email or the list.

WeTransfer is also a very good service … easy to use … and free.

Have the Admins set a size limit for uploaded files?  I see that the largest one so far is 16 MB.

I don't have Bill's article on plastic cars, but would note that his Feb 2008 piece on the FGEX consortium, which is 81 pages, is only a 11.9 MB file.

PDFs usually aren't that big.  I just took my largest, most photo-intensive PowerPoint clinic with a file size of 121 MB, and converted it to a PDF that is only 15.6 MB.  Many (most) email apps allow attachments up to 25 MB.

YMMV of course.

Dropbox is a good idea. I think you don't need an account if I create a special link
to share with everyone here, which lets them into the file set in my dropbox.

I've attached a list of Bill Welch files (I'm sure there are more) - You can see some
of them are quite large!

I'll get a round tuit... :-D

Since I only have a few of these, I’d like to see all made available. 

Bill continues to be missed….

Thanks!

I agree with Brian.  I did not see an answer to the question of maximum file size that could be posted in the Files section.  Do we know what that is?

I'm not an Adobe Acrobat expert, but I believe you can significantly reduce file size by options concerning backward compatibility. I believe that the program is up to version 22 or thereabouts. If you set the option to be compatible to version 9 or later the file size will be much smaller than if you default to version 1. Since a version 22 reader is a free download, someone who just wants to read your documents doesn't need backward compatibility.
