Two from the Fall 2002 Nailer News:
John Iacovino has put forth a pretty good argument to incude the 2
x 1/4 rnd R stl (17) 29 in the Southern Pacific Western
Lines set. I need to dwell on this for a while before I put it in
the list! This nail is common on the UP, and its style does not match
Rolland Meyers has good reasons for including the 2 1/2 x 3/16
rnd R stl (18B) 28 in the Southern Pacific Western Lines
set. Again, I am not yet convinced, though Charles Sebesta is.
