Sorry about the No, or invalid date. A persistant Y2K problem.
Bigger Y2K problem is my keyboard went nuts. Hit the A key and get
p, hit B and get Y, etc. In order to rid this bug had to clean out the
computer and reboot all of the programs. Even bigger problem
is when I put in a back up disc, from 1999 the problem returns.
So in short all of my notes and previous work is useless.
Yes, I did write an early D&RG Lettering Guide. It is no longer
available. It sorely needs to be rewritten and redrawn. I had
it rewritten and have started on some of the drawings, but that is
all useless, see above. Not sure if I want to start all over again.
I have been neglecting my model buiIding for too long.
In re: the 4-wheeled cars, in 1879 they were still being used
for freight service. Mostly loaded with steel, ties and rail. But they
were also use for carrying stone, coal, machine parts, and on May
21st # 1 and #33 carried a tank. Also know that the 4-wheeled
box cars were carrying machine parts, tallow, etc.
I do not know their status after 1879.
If you are modeling circa 1882, a large portion, if not most of the
D&RG freight roster was lettered P&CE Trust and CRS Trust. With
no D&RG. Also you should throw in a South Park car or two, as
the two roads were interchanging equipment.
