Re: Modeltec magazine - full listing of issues

Thank you for the info, PRR5406. I had not heard about the COHS getting the magazine. I've had a number of inquiries about availability in the past - now I know what to reply.

Re: Jesse Livingston

Sad to hear of Unka Jesse's passing. I always enjoyed receiving his articles, email dialogs, and phone calls. His efforts were quite instrumental in perpetuating the live steam hobby. He will be missed by the hobby and the readers of LSOR.

Re: Car stability paper

Bill Donovan (Real Trains) wrote a nice article on the stability of 7-1/2" riding cars that was published in the Nov-Dec 2012 issue of Live Steam & Outdoor Railroading. If you have the issue, check it out. Otherwise, it's still available as a back issue.

I agree with Bill. Two small holes will save a lot of tears later.

Benjamin:
You might try Bernie McCallum of Hobby Metal Kits (http://www.hobbymetalkits.com). If he doesn't have any, I think he could lead you in the right direction. Standard disclaimer here - I am not connected with Bernie's business; just know him to be very helpful to the model builders.
