Spookshow - Another Car to Add to Your Encyclopedia

I was looking at Trainworx gondolas, and I saw that their 52' 6" corrugated gondola isn't listed in your encyclopedia. Maybe you can add it at your convenience:

Hmm... why did they make
a gondola out of corrugated
cardboard...?


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I have the Conrail car. To my tired eyes it looks pretty good and does not have any problems negotiating my 10" radius curve.

My gosh, how do these guys keep slipping these cars past me? There must not've been a lot of bitching and/or praising in the forums when it came out (or at least that's the excuse I'm going with)  :D

Thanks for the heads-up, Kiz. Will be added soonly.

Cheers,
-Mark

P.S. Hey mfr's, send me an email when you make a new model. Couldn't hurt, eh?  ;)

Hard to keep track of them all.  Another one to add?  http://www.pwrs.ca/announcements/view.php?ID=6385

Similar to the Kaslo Shops 100T rotary gondola kit that you have in your encyclopedia, but the PWRS/NARC version is ready to run.  Comes with metal wheels, body mount MT's, great detail.  All around, a well done car.

You might be able to add the corrugated gon to the existing Trainworks 52.5' Thrall Gon page.  The only difference that I can find is the corrugations, so it's basically a variation of the standard Thrall Gon rather than an all-new car.

Good idea (and that's probably why I missed it in the first place)

Thanks, yes. I assume the pictures on this page are HO?

I think you will find they are the N scale ones.

I see you added the corrugated gon to the existing 52' 6" entry. However, the date introduced (1973) seems too late for the corrugated gon. The MP gon link I posted in the original post shows a built date of 1967.


Hmm... that's Kiz for you,
always complicating
things...

The GN's first corrugated gons were built in 1966, so 1973 is definitely too late.
