May 2020 - Got side-tracked doing some passenger train research. Have started to post some of that data.

April 2020 - With COVID-19 changing many lives, mine is much the same at home. Have noted that my focus and concentration are not so good.

March 2020 - Still need to finish scanning the second half of the book of post-WP & MP merger UP Freight Car Diagrams, plus some PFE diagrams - maybe soon.

2020 - 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

This site will probably always be under construction. Keep checking back for more detail train photos, drawings, diagrams, model photos and other data.
Enjoy.
