Boston And Maine Rectangular Herald

Post by ABP4014 » Tue Apr 30, 2019 11:54 am

I have been asked to draw a full scale version for preservation use of this herald. I can work from close up photo's, physical measurements, blueprints would be a real bonus. I the past I have done a Maine central version for a low sided gondola (historical data traced) and for the as delivered version for SW-1. I believe this version is of different dimensions from the Maine central version which is 44" long x 32" high.

If you haven't already contacted the B&MRRHS, they may specs in their archives.
