This 440-page book is an entirely new work by David Casdorph that
provides an in-depth look at Norfolk Southern's current coal car fleet, including those from predecessor railroads that
were still on the roster as of late 2009 (Conrail, Norfolk & Western, Reading and Southern). With over 200 high-resolution
color photos and extensive historical data, this book provides the most comprehensive examination of Norfolk Southern's coal
car fleet ever published. David documents the physical characteristics and dimensions of all of the various types and classes
of NS coal gondolas and hoppers. Also included in a brief overview of available HO and N scale models that can be used to model
NS coal cars. This CD book is a valuable research tool for both modern-day Norfolk Southern modelers and rail historians.
Presented in PDF format (Adobe® Reader® 5.0 or later required), all text is fully searchable, and all high-resolution color
photos can be zoomed in on for close examination of every detail...something not possible in printed books.
