May 2019 - The past year was mostly consumed by medical issues. Have recently posted photos from model meets I have been to the past year. Still need to add captions to some of them. I'm slowly working on it. See the "Model RR Shows & Meets" folder. Will get previous years up as I get to it.

May 2019 - Posted photos from the Ogden, UT joint convention of the SPH&TS and UPHS in the "Historical Society Conventions" folder.
Also posted the slides from my "Modeling PFE Refrigerator Cars" clinic done at Ogden in the "PFE Models" folder.

April 2019 - Still need to finish scanning the second half of the book of post-WP & MP merger UP Freight Car Diagrams.

2019 - Still looking for info as to why UP put 36" Red Dots on the doors of boxcars in the late 1960s. Much of what I know is in a gallery in the "UP Freight Car Painting & Lettering" folder. If you have any ideas about the reason for those Red Dots, please contact me at: Dick -dot- Harley4UP -at- verizon -dot- net
