Ohio River Railway
- Just added some pix of car 24, a single truck curve sider. May take
some time to load, please be patient
The Bachmann bodies I "acquired" will get bashed into car 10 some
year. Again working full time, so serious projects will be a while
down the track. Isn't it a pity how work reduces the amount of
leisure time available?

A very nice website and thanks for the kind words on my overhead wire
The car 24 pics seem to create more qustions than they answer. The
doors on only one side are 'typical' of a single ended car which would
be wyed or looped to turn at the end of the line. But according to
the pics, provision is for two trolley poles on the roof, headlights
at both ends, and walkover seats which could be flipped for travel in
the opposite direction.
Maybe the real Ohio River only carried passengers in one direction and
on the return run, they ran with the blind side for several miles to
get back to the starting point. I wonder how many folks are stuck out
there at the end of the line?
By the way we have the carbody of such a single truck curvesider at
IRM - originally from Knoxville, TN. So when you get to the model and
need that elusive measurement, come on out for a visit to our site and
if you let me know I would be happy to meet you and show you around.
Or if it is something like a simple dimension I could always
re-institute the Bryan Anderson Service and try to get the info for
you. But please don't wait till it is -20 and snow up to our armpits.
