    to quote pink floyd: “hello...hello...is there anybody out there?”

    i’ve still not located “the registry” and aside from one like there’s been no reply here and i cannot pm or otherwise contact any of the principals.

    i would welcome evidence that the stated goal of a reference for future searchers of usat info has not become a fail.

    anybody?

    from around a decade ago, when this was an active thread, a “south eastern express” trailer on flat was made and i’d like any details beyond a couple of photos. IMG_4933.jpg


    i can be reached here and at

    cheers!

    I am afraid the endeavor went away. The person who was doing it suddenly disappeared. We have no way of knowing what happened. :(

    i refer future searchers to the wayback machine:
    web dot archive dot org

    point it at the usat site, it has the basics.

    as for all the specials collected by the registry effort, and now apparently lost to us, one hopes that somewhere there are copies of the various docs/pdfs/etc mentioned here.

    cheers all!

    i have a 35 page pdf in my possession:


    USA Trains Info Registry @Trainboard.com

    USA Trains Info Registry

    American Series R1900 Box Cars

    The following list is taken from postings by EMD Trainman on TRAINBOARD.com who is considered an expert on all things USA Trains.
    This list could not have been possible without his vast knowledge and expertise.
    I have taken the liberty of adding missing entries and included photos of all items I have been able to locate. Some were taken from USA Trains online photo library while others I scanned from USA Trains catalogs and other souses.
    This PDF will be updated from the lists found on TRAINBOARD.com as time permits and where discrepancies between the two exists, the USA Trains Into Registry on TRAINBOARD.com should be considered the authority.

    I hope you find this information helpful, GovB a Trainboard/Raillmages Supporter.



    my phone says my copy dates from 04/2022.

    my immediate question is: does a copy belong here?

    cheers!
