C&LE Red Devil model
Over on the Interurban Railways blog I saw that Volkmar designed a CAD model of the Cincinnati & Lake Erie (C&LE) high-speed, lightweight trolley car known as the "Red Devil." Moreover, he has 3D printed an N-scale (1:160) model of this marvel of 1929-1930 engineering. The real ones used to run from the outskirts of Cincinnati to Dayton, Columbus, Toledo, and Detroit at speeds of up to about 90 MPH. They passed by about a mile from where I'm typing this. Very cool.
