PC: U-25C modeling

some fairly clear pictures of preferably left and right side views.  If
pictures are available send them to me.

   If there aren't any decent pictures around, there are a few general
questions concerning modeling.

   1.)  I am going to start with a U-25B with some additional parts from
U-30C and U-28C shells.  I believe the nose on a U-25C is shorter than
that of a U-25B.  If  so, is
it approximately the size of a U-30/U-28 ?

   2.)  Along the walkway near the rear of the engine there is a raised
section on both the U-25B and U-25C.  Some pictures are hinting to this
section being longer on a U-25C than on a U-25B.  Is this the case?
Also, about how far from the end of the walkway does this raised section
end?  I believe it is closer to the end on a U-25C.

   3.)  I know the U-25C has an unusual wheel/truck arrangement.  This
is similar to the
RSD-4/5/12/15, E-44 and the FM Trainmaster.  Which one of these most
closely resembles the U-25C truck?  Are these trucks all actually

  I know old Jerry Jordack seems to be the U-25C specialist.  I would
appreciate some input on this Jerry.  If anyone has any ideas or
comments that may help, please E-mail me at benedict -AT- htc.net.
