Hey 1chan I need your wisdom to help me out. I'm here trying to find proper measurements for the NYC "Hickory Creek" car. I'm probably not looking in the right places as I seem to not find what I'm looking for. So I turn to you guys. Also so this thread isn't totally a waste let's also make this a classic Pullman car thread.

Hi /rail/! Do we have an IRC channel?

Also, take this pic of the newly restored station in my town. The tracks are unfortunately long gone, and the station serves as a museum. Still looks pretty!

The adaptive reuse is admirable. But without tracks, it's just a building.

There was once an IRC channel-like thing, but people were immature and babies about it and it went away.

They have some fancy pants rail sim here that lets you use a beltpack and walk around the yard.

Unfortunately, CN is cheap as shit with their training materials and just takes a lot of it from other railroads and it uses CSX rules. i.e. not allowed to get on and off moving equipment.

It's expressly allowed on CN and I believe CP, now that Hunter Harrison is in charge.

I will never understand that man. He has the bold attitude of an industrialist but started off as a little guy in a yard. He cuts stupid shit like the "don't board moving equipment" rule but doesn't seem to value track maintenance.
