Just a heads up for anyone on the lookout for overalls, work clothes and the like that would be useful on the WW&F, I've had great luck with All Seasons Uniforms out of Woodstock, Il. Not only do they carry all sorts of workwear, they carry at least 5 different brands of bib overalls- at least 1 (roundhouse) is American made.

They have great customer service and are a pleasure to deal with. They also tend to offer a really good (if not best) price on what they carry.

Their number is 847-952-9860. You can also order online.

Yes Bill - that is them.

I've also been curious about the condcutor's hat on the previous page that is in the Peck-era picture. It looks pretty much like a BR-era driver's cap, which are available.

For the record, that would be what is often referred to as a grease top engine drivers cap.

OK I'm stuck. How do I find the conductors hat Steve referred to on the site?

OOPS - Thought previous page referred to the all seasons uniforms website, not the previous forum page.
