NYC decals for Lionel PW 6462 gondola

Ed Walsh ·
I have 5 - 6462 style PW gondolas that I want to repaint and re-letter to NYC scheme. Some of the gondolas are red, blue and some are Lionel Lines. I would like to make them all black, or brown with NYC lettering. I have tried all the usual folks listed in the forum source list for decals but have come up short. I know there are companies that will make custom decals but I am guessing each set of decals would probably be more expensive than just buying a NYC gondola in black or brown. Any...

scale drawings for NYC Budd cars

ChainsawCHARL1E ·
I have a copy of the "Passenger Car Library, Volume 2", which includes the Empire State Express and other NYC Budd cars, but the floor plans are not properly dimensioned, the sideviews are just sketches, and there are no drawings or sketches for the ends, roof, or undersides. Can anyone direct me to a repository of Budd drawings which would be useful for building scale models? Thanks.

Lionel 6-9815 NYC reefer as modified

pro hobby ·
Lionel 6-9815 NYC reefer as modified. This Lionel "Standard O" reefer is a very basic model with a plastic body and underframe. It includes Lionel metal "sprung" trucks. The model is lettered for NYC and includes the NYC "Early Bird" logo. Not certain that NYC actually had 40 foot reefers with this decoration. This model is typical of other similar Standard O cars that have a "shortened" wheelbase to allow operation on O-27 track. My preference is to extend the wheel base by moving the truck...

Design your own NYC Subway network

RailRide ·
Not a model one, but graph out a real network superimposed on a map of NYC. Or modify the existing one. See how your design stacks up. The simulation uses real-world data (census data, jobs data, existing transportation demand data, etc.) to determine how useful your design really is. Select your line from the box on the right, and click where you'd like to place a station. Unfortunately there's no means of controlling exactly where the resulting lines are situated (that I can see), but...
