<br>Pressed cork and linseed oil is scarce these days, however, Armstrong Flooring is making some of these pattens, mostly the Moires, in a sheet vinyl, for the same reasons people are making new cast iron leg tubs. If you do have original linoleum, PLEASE! keep the ammonia away from it. <br><br>

I remember looking for linoleum for restoring a Canadian National car about ten years ago, and being told that local floor-covering dealers could get "Battleship linoleum" if they had to, but that the cost was high and the color choice limited. I decided that what is called "transit rubber" would be a good visual and functional replacement. This is the rubber floor you see in buses. It is available in many colors and is easy to work with. Look for advertisements in "Mass Transit," the "Pocket List," and similar publications.<p>Aarne Frobom<br>Michigan State Trust for Railway Preservation, Inc.<br>
