Power Station Smoke Stacks Lean to the Left.

A couple months ago, I asked fellow collectors if their 436 Power
Station smoke stack was mounted to the left or to the right.
Here are the results of my mini- survey: 10 Power Stations had
the smoke stack on the left
and only one had the stack on the right.

pre-production sample? Surely, a survey of only 11 Power Stations
won’t give us an answer with many others out there.
So check your layouts, check your inventories, check with your
fellow collectors. Then email me at email@example.com and write in
the “subject” line either “Smoke Stack Right”
or “Smoke Stack Left.” That way I can easily count
the number of lefts and rights without opening the emails. Then
I’ll let you know just how unusual a right-handed smoke
