Today after several months and trials in loading etc the CB&Q 1904 ish trucks arrived for my Pullman Car 57, this really brings the project on and we have waited 8 years to find a pair. RYPN was used to notify me of these so full credit goes to those who first contacted me and helped and donated to this cause.
Interestingly they are sitting on the remains of the wye that ran into Holliday Park and was used to deliver Big Boy 4004 in 1964 and are about 100 feet from the original CB&Q line to Sterling Colorado.

BRAVO !!!

This sure warms my heart, after meeting you and seeing your work last Saturday. I can't think of a better way to make the case for RyPN being useful than this. I also can't think of anybody I'd rather see come into a windfall like this. Please keep us informed of your progress, may you have only the very best of luck in the future.

Take Care & WORK SAFE
