Possibilities

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 SP.

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.
