I can't meet you tomorrow unless I start out for Virginia yesterday. I live
in southern Indiana, but developed a passion for the N & W when Lifelike
built the Y-3's. I immediately bought two of them which I double-head... Boy
is that a beautiful sight!! Thus far I have been pulling a consist of
reefers (you know the same old stuff... food stuffs, beer, more beer, more
beer... sorry I got carried away there for a moment), and it looks great. I
can't wait until I get my 100+ car coal drag assembled and on the tracks.

Back to YOUR e-mail... I will be glad to relay that info to MS. By the
way... what are an H-50 and an H-55? My7 reference material stops with the
H4 (70 ton) numerically and the HK (57 1/2 ton) alphabetically. The era that
I am interested in is the 1920's to 1945, so your class may be newer that
that. I will need a copy ready photo to send to MS, if they are interested
in producing more than one set of decals.

Since Microscale bought the artwork for the Herald King line, get them to 
produce the H-50 and H55 sets in HO and N scale as well. Are you here in 
Roanoke? If so, we talk about it tomorrow.
