Hey Rob -
Not that I have money burning a hole in my pocket, but - have these Pullman cars gotten any closer to being available?

Not really any closer. The roof has been a bit of a stumbling block. Machining a smooth one takes about 3 hours. With the ribs and air vents takes around 4-1/2 hours. That is a bit too much time for even my own cars, let alone selling them.

When I get back to working on them this winter I'm going to see about making masters of the roofs and resin casting them. But that might be a problem for gluing on the sides & ends. We'll see.



Aside from that I got sidetracked building a front end loader for my old Cub Cadet :dance:

Is it possible to put the two trucks next to each other?

While researching some of these passenger cars it dawned on me that the GSC 41-N truck isn't correct for the Super Chief cars. :snooty: They should be the GSC 41-CS-11's, though there isn't a whole lot of difference.

Anyway, this project is moving forward quite nicely. Everything, trucks included, are going to be resin cast. I have the molds made up for the baggage and RPO cars and will be making up the rest over the next few weeks. I'll have some pics of the first two as soon as I get some of the new trucks casted. :dance:
