Re: C&NW Slogan Boxcars

Thanks Fred

I have most of the Model Railroad Mag. I am looking for pictures in the 8x10 or larger sizes. I have a couple of the original blueprints for the last two schemes in service. I think they were used from the very late 30s up into the 50s.

Re: Cagney Class D Driver Tires

I have seen information on this before. If I remember right, they cast new drivers. If I went to the trouble of redoing the ones you have I would shrink new steel tires on.
