Jim Brewer,


THANK YOU! You made my day!!


I understand this particular car is currently owned by the RNRHS, and can’t wait for its restoration.

Jim D,


Of course! I've attached a scan.  I have no idea where I purchased this photo except that it wasn't from Bob's Photos; there is no stamp or other markings on it to indicate.  Enjoy.

Being from (and still living in) Scioto County, I’d LOVE to see the picture you have of that car. I have looked for years and no luck. Thanks!

I want to build a model of the N&W Class S-1 Sleepers, which were built by the Budd Company, circa 1950.


These cars were all originally built with skirts; my research notes indicate these cars were originally built with Cor-Ten steel plates and there was a serious problem with corrosion; in 1954 authorization was given to replace those steel plates with stainless steel plates.


I am trying to determine when the skirts were removed from these cars; it seems to me the skirts would have been removed at the same time the plates were replaced.  I have an undated photo of the Scioto County without skirts; my notes indicate its plates were replaced in June 1954.


I have a photo of the Hampden-Sydney College in Petersburg on June 21, 1955 and it still has skirts; my notes indicate it received the corrosion repairs in July 1956.


Does anyone have more definitive information or photos of these cars?


Many thanks.
