I have added a version of my waybill article from the April 2010 issue of The Dispatcher’s Office (pages 17–24) to Google Docs. Anyone is permitted to download and, if desired, print this document. It is available with the following link:
There are two reasons why I am doing so. First, some errors were made in the version which appeared in the magazine; most noticeably the car initials and numbers were omitted in magazine production from the waybills which were submitted to accompany model photos. Second, as the Dispatcher’s Office did not use full color images at that time, neither the pink perishable waybills nor the model photos were shown in color. However, the layout and overall appearance of the magazine article were generally good, and I think it looks attractive in the magazine.
This article was written as a follow-up to my article in RMC (“Prototypical Waybills for Car Card Operation,” Railroad Model Craftsman, December 2009, pp. 71–77) and was so cited in my first post with this title, posted on December 9, 2010 (available at: http://modelingthesp.blogspot.com/2010/12/waybills.html). The DO article was intended to explain the various parts of prototype waybills, which is essential if blank waybills are to be filled out properly for model use. Hopefully making it available with corrections and color will assist in that direction.
