Ft Wayne Combine ready to print

The print order was sent out today.

One of the last add-ons was a chimney. This high chimney were still visible when the cars were sold to the Oklahoma Railways.

(Of course I will do this version too...)


New in my library: CERA Bulletin 102 - Electric Railways of Indiana

My latest add in my library : 
Electric Railways of Indiana - Book II
CERA Bulletin 102
1958, Central Electric Railfan's Association (CERA)
spiral bound, 176 pages

This booklet contains many photos, including some very rare color photos.

Another delight are the drawings : I found Union Traction 400 class, UTC 427 class, the Indiana Service Corp. 375 class and their trailer 390. Contains also blueprints of the Highspeeds, the IR 90 class, and of the big wooden Ft Wayne - Wabash 500 cars...

This is 3D work for years and years, folks! And not enough, CERA Bulletins 101 and 122 will come to me soon.


An engineers dream

FortWayne - Lima interban car kit, HO scale
An engineers dream is when all is coming together and is matching well.

Now I will check all the clearances all the details for a very last time, check how the Bowser drive will match, and then this model will be "bon à tirer" (good to print).


Back to the boxcars

CERA interurban boxcar with rounded ends
Awaiting the last adds on my Fort Wayne project, I woke up my old Interurban boxcar drawings who were well advanced but eternally unfinished.

First in the list is the rounded end CERA trailer. The double Camel doors and some under-frame is already done.
