If you did an NYC car (aka USRA steel boxcar) I'd be up for a number of those, too, were you to make them into kits for sale.

The W&LE was a subsidiary of the NKP.

The PRR X23 is one car that makes me revisit my assumptions about PRR but Ray Breyer's table on single sheathed survivors says the last one went in 1955. Don't know if any shortlines inherited them but with the rules on age of cars used in interchange it was unlikely they would have gone offline i suppose.

I am moving house over the next few weeks, when i get back I'll have a bit more time for Viking roofs and other bits. At the new place there is room to cast.

Ah, you're on the way... you'll come around and realise everything about Pennsy equipment is nifty. ;)

Some X23 survived as MOV cars. Google can find pictures of X23 from 2006, such as this one: http://www.irm.org/cgi-bin/image.pl?conf=img800&img=/gallery/albums/PRR499320/aaf.sized.jpg

The first one was completed in November 2013 (PRR)

The second one last week (SP).

There are so many "TT-projects"...

Rob M (CabinetPlanner) stopped doing the TT-scale gons (and other cars) on his CNC mill in late 2015...
