Looking for pictures of R-141


Recommended Posts

Hi all. I'm looking for pictures or diagrams of specific trailer flat cars: the ones pictured at http://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?103907, http://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?103908, and http://jtunnel.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=1714810. I'm specifically looking for pictures with lettering and pictures with underbody detail.


I'm a model railroader, and I'm scratch building some subway C division equipment, starting with some flat cars.


I regularly read the threads here, but I know very little, so I mostly learn. Thanks for all of the great reading!

Thanks for the reply, KR. The only reference I can find to the MTH flat car specifically is a youtube video, and the one I saw for seems to have less detail than the one I'm building. Since their crane car (http://cgi.ebay.com/MTH-30-79102-MTA-Crane-New-York-Transit-Subway-Work-Car-/130542270721?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item1e64ecf901) doesn't seem to match any prototype on nycsubway.org, I'm not sure the flat car would, either. I don't mean that to be pejorative in any way, but I think that MTH may not be as concerned with "getting it right" as much as making something cool (which their trains are) that people will buy (which people do.)


I did, however, discover http://community-2.webtv.net/NYCityModelTransitSystem/WorkNonRevenue/ just now trying to find the work train you're describing, so I will try sending over an e-mail to the person and see if the address still works!


Here's the youtube video. I couldn't figure out how to have the forum post it as a plain link and not an embedded video.
