We have a good progress report to give on Bill's commemorative car. Here is
what we have so far.
1. 250 cars donated by Uncle Will's Full Throttle. Two bay open hopper in
Southern Pacific railroad, brown with white lettering. Bill's favorite
2. Wheel sets donated by MTL through Loren Snyder.
3. Clear boxes to put the cars in donated from Bob Olson with PennZee.
4. Coal loads to put into the cars donated from Bill Hay from Hay Brothers.
5. Talking with Michael Hilliard about decals. Also talked with Bob Olson
about print pad lettering on the cars. Printing the cars will take longer due
to shipping the cars to be printed and scheduling the cars to be printed and
then shipped back.
6. Foam inserts for the boxes have been talked with by Loren Snyder. Could
use simple foam pieces to place in the box around the car.
That is the current progress on the commemorative cars. In a span of just a
week or so, we as a Z scale community have contacted manufacturers and other
suppliers and got the items needed for this tribute to Bill. All of this would
not be possible if it were not the efforts of people like Bill bringing us
together in our hobby of Z scale model railroading.
The cars should arrive in Houston by the end of this week. The other supplies
are being put together to be shipped out to Houston. The Houston Z Bend Track
group will have work sessions to assemble the cars once all the supplies are
gathered. Will keep all of you informed on the progress and price of the cars.
Have a good Friday. I will write an email on Saturday night after I get home
from Bill's visitation at the funeral home. Stay on track.
