Monson Railroad / On-line photo of Monson flats?
« on: June 16, 2015, 11:04:39 AM »
I'm working on a potential article on scratchbuilding the Monson flatcars (mostly as a study in scratchbuilding and jigmaking, see ).  I'd like to get a photo of the prototype to include in the article, but I don't want to break copy right by scanning any of the photos in Barney's book.  Can anyone point me to an on-line photo of a Monson flat that I could link to in my article?

Thanks in advance!

I'm David Emery (but you figured that out from the required real name :-)  My interest is in late 19th century railroading, including light and industrial railways.  There's a 30" railroad (unnamed) that interchanges with my standard gauge Sandy Lake & Northern, providing slate (inspired by Monson RR) and other mineral products and freight.  I'm also working on a 30" mule-powered tramway as part of a brickworks.

Back in the '60s, I rode on the Edaville, and still have a pile of B&W photos from those trips.  Some day I'll scan them, I was fascinated by the little Forney locos.
