PRR Number plate measurements

Postby Richard Glueck » Mon Apr 05, 2004 4:42 pm

For those of you who, like myself, would cherish a PRR number plate but don't have the access or the bread, here is good news for you.

I measured E6 #460's keystone plate in the RRMPa's vault three years ago and took these dimensions:

Height 17"
Top width 16.5"
Bottom width 11.25"
Shoulder indentations 3.5"
distance from top to shoulders 3"
long Slope of sides 14.75"

Museum archivist Kurt Bell sent me the follow information from an I1sa number plate in the collection.

Circle diameter 17"
Rim edging 1" wide

I'd like to see your copies when they are made.

Hi Richard. As I said on the old forum, there is a keystone out here that was on a J-1a. Not going to tell you where it is becouse I have been trying for a year now to convince the person to sell it to me.
