1/32 Virginian Railroad Tug W.R.Coe /Karren Tibbitts
« on: October 27, 2014, 08:57:32 AM »

I have been working on the 1/32 scale tug that was built for the Virginian Railroad in 1956 .I weren't aboard this tug at Boston Harbor in the early nineties and took some photo's .There is a plaque that tells who and were she was made .
 That started on a search for a set of plans and finally contacted the person who designed her .He sent me a copy of the original builders plans .There are many sheets with lots of detail including some measurements .
She is a 105' Diesel Electric Tug built by .

It would look better if you could post the pictures directly into your letter instead of using a referral address.
