Old Book full of info

Post by Glenn Nicol » Wed Mar 24, 2010 3:46 pm

While I was looking for drawings of railroad cars I come across this book. (link below) It can be downloaded in PDF format. I think it is very informative especially for older train info. They even show the tacks that were used in the upholstery in passenger cars. Go to page 162 with your PDF reader to start seeing the 5683 illustrations.

Hope some will find this useful.
