300Re: [NVnarrowgauge] Nevada Central coal car
- Nov 22 9:13 AMI am glad to be the first to correct my own mistake. The end beam detail in the Gazette drawing is correct for the NC's Billmeyer and Smalls flat cars. Having said that I believe the B&S flat cars were numbered 100-119 making the number 160 given to the car in the drawing incorrect.

Group, Does anyone other than myself find something wrong with the Nevada Central coal car drawing on page 53 of the new Nov/Dec 2007 Gazette? The first thing that caught my eye was the end beams. I don't have my NC photos close at hand but I remember the NC's Billmeyer and Smalls flat cars as having end beams that sat flush with the bottoms of the side sills with the deck coming to the end of the car on top of the end beams. The drawing shows the end beams sitting in notched side sill as with a Carter car. Also the enlarged double bolt washer doesn't look right. Any thoughts, Greg Maxwell West Linn, OR Yahoo!
