I am going to shorten a too long bashed X-42 by taking out three 'donuts' and reassembling the pieces. The critical measurement for this project is the distance between the doors. I think the centers of the sliding box car doors were the same distance apart as the centers of the sliding doors of the B60. If anyone has a close to scale model of a PRR 60, please measure and share the distance from the center of one door to the center of the other door. Or right side to right side or left side to left side. Thank you, John in Lansing, ILL firstname.lastname@example.org
No need to approximate from a model, here are the real measurements:
Thank you, I spent quite some time on the Internet looking for the dimensions, couldn't find them. From the diagram, 27 1/2' will be the distance between the centers of the doors.
