The owner of the WhitePass and Yukon Yahoo Group has a Blog that he posts WP&Y RR pictures to and had updated it. He mentioned the update so I had a look and found the "Paige" Rail Car.

The web link below has a drawing of the Paige Rail Car and several pictures of the prototype in two different versions.

This web site is off-line once in a while so if you try it and get nothing try back later.

When I downloaded the drawing and had a good look at it I noticed it was not to scale or was just not a very good drawing. I spent some time looking more closely at the photos of the Rail Car then decided to look for more pictures of Paige Cars from the same year. Using the new pictures of the Real Car and the Rail Car photos I started making changes. A few of the major changes were to lengthen the hood, widen the car body and lower the top.

First version built using card stock as a pattern mock-up is in On30. I might also build one in HOn30. The On30 model will use a Stanton Radio Control System and Team Lois Battery for power.

A few of the photo's I used to modify the drawing:

I am still working on the body mock-up but will start work on the chassis and thinking about how I want to power the model.

Boerries,

Thanks for letting me know that the "Online Magazine of the White Pass & Yukon Route, The Thunderbird" was available and thanks for posting the link.

Now that I have better photos I will dig out my material on the Paige Rail Car model and work on it again.

I am looking forward to your progress on this build. My imaginary RR connects to the WP&Y.
