  • Railway Prototype Cyclopedia 10

Railway Prototype Cyclopedia, or 'RP CYC' for short, is a continuing series of soft cover, perfect-bound books that provides invaluable information in a single source with a focus on railroad equipment built or in use during the 1920s through 1950s. This was the "Golden Age" of railroads when steam locomotives and first generation diesels ruled.  Included are articles on freight and passenger cars, locomotives, and structures. Some articles include information about selected scale models that relate to the subject. RP CYC provides high quality, large format photographs of the prototype equipment and scale models. Every photograph selected for publication is large enough for you to see as much detail as possible. Photographs include those taken by the builders as well as in-service mainly during the 1920s through 1950s and occasionally the 1960s. The articles are also supported with technical data including applicable plans, diagrams, and comprehensive roster information. Contents: Freight Car Hand Brakes - 1920s to 1950s, New York Central 47'-11" Drop- Side Container Cars, 70-ton Phosphate Quadruple Covered Hopper Cars - Addendum and AC&F Type 27 Uninsulated Multiple-Compartment I.C.C. 103 Tank Cars. 2004 RY CYC Publishing.
