        The problem is spaces and maybe the "#" in the file name. To be safe, the only characters you should ever use in a file name are "a..z" "A..Z" "0..9" "-_" (lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers, dashes and underscores.)

            OK I deleted the failures. It been awhile since I have posted so I'm relearning. Sorry!

            So here are two pictures of PBC plymouth #1939 in green. I really like this scheme. Love that logo. Really down home look.

                Matt, those are very nicely done. It would be great if you could maybe post a drawing or your dimensions. Are you going to scratch the solid style side frames like these?

                BILL


                Bill,

                Thanks. I'm planning on scratchbuilding both styles of sideframes but it will be winter before I start.

                    Thanks Rick,

                    I have a lot more to post plus a lot on Arkansas Lime but that'll be another thread. Soon!

                      Hi all,

                      As promised I started a thread on the Arkansas Lime Co.

                        Hi Guys,

                        The more I find out about the Palmetto Brick operation the more interesting it becomes. To say the least they did some unique things.

                        One thing that the Palmetto Brick did is for awhile they had their side dumps painted and lettered for mainline railroads. I found these pictures of some of the side dumps painted that way on the "RR Pictures Archive.net" site.

                        http://jrowens.rrpicturearchives.net....aspx?id=78305

                        It would make for a really interesting model train if we did a set of cars like PBC did.

                        Also they replaced the wheels on their side dump cars with 33" standard gauge wheels. I have 10 PSC side dump kits to build. After seeing what PBC did with their cars I order enough sets of 26" brass wheels from PSC for my cars. I couldn't quite go 33"

                        Then there is that bridge. WOW! Using I beams for ties how cool is that. Here are a couple pictures I have to add the the collection Big Lars posted.





                        Finally I found this picture of an engine that was used by PBC however it does look like #1939 or #1946. The cab is completely different. Does anyone know anything about this engine?

                          Bill,

                          What/where is your source for that info?

                          Thanks,

                          Matt

                            The nine page article in the issue of RMC I mentioned in a previous post contains lots of good info and photos.

                              Matt,

                              I found all of this on the internet over the years. Several from site that are now gone. I will post more.

                              I have that RMC article I'll check it out later today.

                                I experimented with resin casting the two different types of pivots:
