Hi All:<br>New member.&nbsp; Two items.<br>1.&nbsp; I have the track standsards reprints from the Colorado Railroad Museum for the D&amp;RGW,&nbsp; but they lack a lot of critical data.&nbsp; I am a rail road modeler (read that literally) and am looking for a section foremans handbook from the 40s-50s.&nbsp; These were issued to each section foreman and had all the company standards for trackwork.&nbsp; They were company property and of a loose leaf format so they could be updated.&nbsp; These handbooks were updated around 1964 to remove all references to the narrow gauge and dual gauge trackwork.&nbsp; Are there any survivors and how can one get copies.&nbsp; I model in Proto:48 and am unable to get any drawings for dual gauge turnouts.<br><br>2.&nbsp; I am buliding a new deck assembly for an Overland Pratt truss bridge for our groups (Colorado O Scale Modelers) LT&amp;N portable layout.&nbsp; Pictures of progress can be found on our website <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.coloradooscale.org">www.coloradooscale.org</a><br>How is the deck structure (ties and rail assembly) secured to the steel structure of the bridge itself? Extensive google searches don&#39;t reveal much information other than a vague reference to &quot;J&quot; or hook bolts.&nbsp; What size bolt?&nbsp; What spacing?&nbsp; Who knows?<br><br>Thanks for any help.<br>John P. Johnson&nbsp; co-chairman Colorado O Scale Modelers<br><br><p><span><br class="yui-cursor"></span></p>
