Okay... the **** editor makes it really difficult to post multiple links, but I went back through everything and have now verified that every link works as it should.

Dwight,

I'm getting ready to cut out my coach and combine using the DXF file from the Carter Brothers passenger cars build. Is there any scale to use or are these in metric?

Thanks

DXF files are metric, you can check the scale bar on the drawing in your CAD system to see how it compares, and scale up to make it imperial.
David.

I was able to open every file I tried, except the Mason Bogie files. Can you please check them again?

Thanks David. It makes more sense as to why they are so large. As I am building them in 20.3 there shouldn't be any scaling necessary, correct? I'm really looking forward to building these cars and see them rolling behind my Accucraft live steam 4-4-0.
