TOPIC: Heavyweight car numbers

Heavyweight car numbers 6 months 3 weeks ago #6588

Hello,
American Models is going to produce a set of S scale, Reading Company heavyweights. They need some help with car numbers. I have gleaned what I could from John Hall’s list of passenger equipment, however I am still missing a couple of classes. Here is what I have so far:

Baggage- BAp – 2 cars - numbers 1696 – 1697

Combines – CVg – 10 cars - # 520 - 529 and 15 cars - # 535 – 549

Dining cars – DCe – 4 cars - # 1186-1189

Observation – PVc --

Coaches – PBh- 75 cars - # 1400-1474; 10 cars - # 1485-1494; 20 cars - # 1505-1524

RPO/Mail cars --

I’m under the impression the Reading didn’t have any clerestory RPOs, but perhaps car numbers from the time period would do.
Any help would be welcome,
Tom Stoltz
