None of these links are working at the moment

Correct,  that is what was causing the problem before I was trying to offer to many versions so to try to ensure that the model gets printed I only offer one set amount now so I had to remove all the multiple versions. Sorry for any bother caused.

The wagons look great.
Now, how about the little tow motors that pulled them around? I remember these wagons being hitched one behind the other and taken to the baggage claims section for pick up. As well the RPO's had them to take away the mail.

Does anyone make these tow motors or can they be printed as well.

Hi Rick

If you have any information / drawings / pictures / sizes etc I will draw them up.
I have had a quick google search [also had a Model railroader search]and most of the initial images look quite modern, if you have a picture of what you think would be appropriate it would help.

Thanks.
I'm having the Bytown Historical Society look for some pictures as well.
I'm thinking that some of these tow motors may also have been used during the war to bring ammunition to the bombers. They weren't that big and were very manoeuvrable. Single carts at small stations were probably pulled by one man but the larger stations had the tow motors for baggage, mail and express freight.

I used to be able to see at what point in the process customers orders were at, but I only get a shipped notification now. If there was a problem with the print run it can set all orders in that print run back about 48 hours. I also do not know how tight the deadlines are at the New York factory  as all my orders come from the Eindhoven factory and they are about 80% delivered early.

I look forward to what you think of them when they arrive.

IIRC, one of the Model Railroader special issues several years ago contained an article about LCL operations and had a photo of a tow motor. Don't know if I still have it but will look.

Mine just came in today, they're going into a Bestine bath tonight, along with some other items.
I'll report and take pics shortly.

I have the Model Railroader DVD but it did not contain any special issues unfortunately, been keeping an eye out in pictures for them in the background, I suppose they were not the things people took pictures of.
