Re: GE 44 tonner

A friend had the April 1973 Model Railroader which has as the center fold a GE 44 tonner which is a measured drawing , so if I decide to go 2" scale do I just multiply the feet times 2 example 29' X 2 = 58" . my brain is just not being friendly lately.

If these are for you all well and good, if for another person don't charge them and if asked you never saw them.
