    Thanks "355". That's a great help. Al Kramer informed me when I requested his permission for photo re-posting that "I ALSO HAVE 12 DIFFERENT USA TRAINS CARS THEY PRODUCED FOR ME EXCLUSIVELY IN QUANTITIES OF ONLY 100 UNITS EACH" but he hasn't forwarded that info as yet. I hope this is on his list. That would help to verify more of what USAT produced as specials.


    Thanks again, GovB

    TrainBoard Logo Change

    I noticed (if not too late) they changed the TrainBoard logo again. Cool! Change is good.

    I have not seen this one yet, however there were many custom run woodside beer reefer cars, many we need to discover.

    Need Help With This One

    Need help with this one. Not on our list but who knows, may be a "special" or "custom" car. Any takers? I know R1922 is not right but have no other clue. May be in the wrong box.

    R1922 SP&S (Seattle, Portland & Spokane) #12271

    How much space do you need to host the registry pages?
    If its not many many Gigabytes you should be able to get free web space from a lot of places.
    The key is finding a host that's reliable and has close to 100% uptime.

    The label on box for this car says "R-1922 Spokane, Portland & Seattle Box Car". It appears to be in the same typeface USAT used on their early cars.

    A_ K_ had quite a number of custom cars made for his personal RR by USAT. This is one of them. He had extras made which he sold through the store that he had at that time.

    Does anyone know which car the R1933 was?

    It doesn't seem to be in the registry, at least I can't find it since one can't do a search.

    Here is a picture of the box label - trouble is that the car in the box is listed as R1922 in the registry.

    Thanks. And thanks to all who helped.

    I will have the 1st Edition PDF for USAT Series 1600 Woodside Reefers soon. The only thing slowing me down are the large number of Prototype paint jobs showing up on eBay the last couple of weeks. I also have an update to the USAT 1900 Box Car Series in the wings but has been slow for the same reason.

    Happy Railroading!, GovB

    OOhhhh GovB, I can't wait for this next PDF file and the update. This wondeful addition of the USA Trains registry could not have been possible without you.

    I really think this USA Trains registry is important history and now that it's being documented, no one will have to research the USA Trains history over and over again. It will be saved for future collectors and generations of USA Trains collectors.

    GovB I have a HUGE collection of r1600 pictures if you need any don't hesitate to pm me and I will send them to your e-ail address.
