    Does anyone have the Oct 83 issue of Model Railroader, and if so, would you be willing to scan an article from it for me?

    Thanks

    My brother probably has it in his garage. If I see him this weekend, i can ask. What article are you looking for?

    Thanks Kevin, It's the article "modeling SP's articulated container train." I remember wanting to build this as a kid but never tried it. I was thinking I might try it now:mrgreen:

    Unless you're looking for a challenge, or to try out you're scratch building skills, Athearn does sell the five car articulated Maxi I,II's in SP colors.
    Athearn - HO RTR Maxi I Well Car/Early, TT/SP #73147 (5)

    These are R-T-R, but you may still find them in kit form at your LHS, or at a show.

    Have you contacted the magazine editors? They have file copies and will often make a copy of an article for a small fee.

    Just a thought. I know how frustrating it can be to know that an article exists, and even to know where it is, but not to be able to lay hands on it.

    I have it!

    I won't be able to scan until Thursday next week, but I'm happy to do it then and e-mail it over.

    No worries

    No worries mate. Like I said I'll scan & e-mail it over next Thursday. I'm out till then due to Easter etc.

    Do you want a .jpg or .pdf. I can do either in colour @ 300 dpi.

    cheers.

    I think .pdf, I am just guessing, but I think that would be easier to work with, IE cut and paste anything I might have too:confused::mrgreen:

    Articles on their way

    there'll be 2 e-mails due to file size.

    Also, they are jpg's as pdf's were too big to e-mail.

    Enjoy.

    cheers
