Re: Car Cards & way bills

Jock, I agree with you in respect of the Vasona Branch site; it's one of my favourites, and there's always so much to learn. The concept of his layout is also seamlessly transferable to the type of operations we are undertaking with the Devon modular meets (which use the non-waybill, computer-genera...

Early SD9s

My present modelling task is to work on three Proto 2000 SD9 SP black widow shells, to represent brand-new locomotives 4348, 4349 and 4350, as seen at San Luis Obispo in April 1954. On page 37 of Strapac's SD7/SD9 book, there's a snap by Rod Crossley of three SD9s at SLO, but only the number of 4348...
