      So will this be a rental from the EBT or an interchange?

      Neither really, since this car is a 24footer as obbosed to 33ft EBT cars. The WV&K Shop Foreman has apparently visitied Orbinsonia at some point and plagerized the design!

      I, on the other hand, have plans drawn up for 1:20 EBT steel boxcars. They measure 33' long, so they'll be bigger than my 27 foot and 30 foot wood boxcars. Will make a good mix in trains, I think.

      I have a quick-pic book on the way for them, and Ive been scouring the 'net for as many photos of them as I can find. An interesting model, should be pretty easy to do in styrene.

      Stay tuned.

      Turnabout is fair play. The EBT was quite skilled in the art of "appropriating" designs themselves. They started early on with the wood cars, including copying some passenger car construction. Their famous 3-bay hoppers were lifted straight off the Pressed Steel Car Co.'s efforts. Nice lookin' car. Lookin' forward to more progress. Later, K

      Bart has given in to my constant bombardment of EBT facts figures and photo's and plans and has been nearly converted ;-)
