Any chance there will be a recording for later viewing? Both for historical interest, and for those of us who can't make it?

Presentation on 2-29-21

Lee Bishop
 

Just in case you might want to watch, I’m doing an online presentation on my ET-themed On30 model railroad layout on Friday, Feb 19th at 7PM PST for a local model train group. This is the link to it:

https://zoom.us/j/96883806235?pwd=T3lkVmpBRDNpNVpBQ3NpSG9VTTlpZz09

Passcode: 362874

Meeting ID: 968 8380 6235

The start will be the group business and photos of whatever else the membership has been working on. I'm mostly going to talk about my ET&WNC-themed alternate-universe layout. It should be about an hour total.

Re: Historical Society newsletters

I got mine yesterday and just read it a few moments ago. A few points:
  • I think the decision to pull the plug for the 2021 ET convention was a smart move. No gathering is worth risking not having members show up for ones in the future from getting COVID this year! The 2022 one will on my 22nd anniversary, so I doubt I'd get my wife to sign off on that, and I can't really go to anything like until after we've gone to see my parents and my wife's parents first. Once that happens, though... I do badly want to make one of the ET conventions someday
  • I'd also love to hit the NG convention but that's a no-go for me for the same reasons. Besides, I've been asked to present a clinic and have my layout available for the 2022 NG convention (in Tacoma/Olympia WA), and I really hope to see some of you there
  • Thanks for posting the shot of the coal cute model. I'd always had an issue visualizing what it looked like, so it's cool seeing it overall
  • I had no idea the builder's plate for 6 was still out there. I wish someone would make castings off of it, as I'd buy one for sure!
  • Can't wait to see 505 looking more complete

Not the case Dan. Red roofs came about on the 15 in 1949. Inspired the Bachmann Big Hauler coaches I think.

I read somewhere that if the car had gold lettering the roof was black and if it had white lettering it had a red roof.

Not an easy answer. I can say for sure that red was not the color until 1949. I would say black, which is what the colorized post cards from the 30s show. There is also this photo, which is from 1948 but shows the equipment in WWII colors.

We had a three day snow event here, the USPS couldn't deliver anything yesterday, so I hope I'll get mine tomorrow.

Thanks Johnny, the plans were published in 2011 and I found them in my Gazette archives.  Next question, What color were the roofs of the ET's passenger cars?  Red, Black or Green.

An excellent drawing of the Azalea was done in the Gazette about 2010. One printed prior to that was incorrect in many measurements. I helped Alfred with ICC information and he did an excellent job. Just cant tell you which issue.
