Hi,


I suppose you suggest more trash on the tracks.

I have to add it to the to do list.


I plan also to add more graffiti on the rolling stocks.

For the building do you think that we have to add graffitis too ?


Thank you for the advice.

Here graffiti is anywhere within arms reach in some areas.

Typically, rail yards are in a part of town where this ''grows''.

I have a caboose of this kind, without wheels.

The trucks are AAR Type m 930

What are the kind of wheels necessary ?

Hi Franck,


There is a a series of caboose general arrangement drawings at

http://crcaboose.railfan.net/drawings.htm

but no Reading ones that I could see.


I have found at least 2 of the drawings listing 33" diameter wheels on other cabeese that made it to Conrail.

The site states that Reading caboose drawings were in Railroad Model Craftsman July 1982.


I hope that this gets you started.

Hi Franck  :wave:



I was pleased to see that your great 'Chicago' module pictures ARE BACK after being blanked out by PhotoBucket ...

... albeit with the horrible PhotoBucket 'graffiti' over the top of them.  :f:



NOT the kind of 'graffiti' you were looking for earlier !  ;)



How's things going at the Club ?  ???

I guess the 'Chicago' modules have progressed some, over the last few months.  L:



:)



Si.

Hi,

We have done the wooden part of the 3 modules, electricity and electronics.
We have already finished to lay the tracks on the first module and we begin to start with the second module.

Regards.
