"Dynamometer Car"
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, July 25, 2003 10:04 PM
Have been working on a model of a "Dynamometer Car." Would like to detail the interior but have been unable to find any pictures of interiors or floor plan drawings as to what some of them may have included. I would guess each RR had their own special needs and thus different interiors but any suggestions on where to start looking?

Within the past 12-18 months, the C&O Historical Magazine had an extensive article (with pictures) on the C&O's dynamometer car. I'm sure a visit to their website will get you the citation you need.
