Hello Sam  (Holmes)  ---

You are very correct about the SIRT "ME-1 Cars" in O-Scale -- and the "how it got produced" with your strong input  to Joe Ogden at Island Model Works.   Also,  Joe Ogden has long been a member of my NYC Transit Modelers Group (Forum Board) and there was a movement at my group with Joe-O to also get the SIRT car produced.  I and Steve Davis worked with Joe-O on the Body details and refinements -  Steve took EXTENSIVE detailed close up exterior photos of the one car at BERA Musuem including under the car and up on and along its roof, of which I have all copies of.  Steve and I and a few of my NYCTMG members pre-ordered and purchased the SIRT car in O Scale  (I ordered and received 2 cars). 

Steve and I also worked intently with Joe-O on the production (and body details) for the O-Scale IRT 1939 Steinway Low-V Car Bodies, and the BMT 3-Unit D-Type Articulated Subway cars.  Originally on those D-Type Triplex cars,  the roof profile and end details were somewhat slightly incorrect on the pre-production "pilot" master bodies, and the roofs were changed to correct appearance by Joe-O at our insistence.  Joe Ogden works well with people in such matters !

If Joe-O were to produce O-Scale Broad Street (pre-war and post-war) cars -- and Market EL (pre-war and post-war) cars,  I would order a few of each !  So, it is up to others  who are interested, to see if the needed minimum numbers (about 30 cars of each type) can be conjured up, with guarantees of $$ deposit pre-orders --  (money talks and B--S-- walks, heh) !!

regards ! - Joe F
