Re: ATSF BX-26 Duryea underframe

Norm Buckhart

Both Gene Diemling and John Barry have produced excellent tutorals on building Santa Fe Bx 37 (I believe) boxcars with Duryea underframes.  Genes car was in O scale and John's in HO. I have these at home but am stuck in a hotel while a major plumbing retrofit is taking place in our building.

Gene's may be found on his blog.

Bx-26, 27, 34 were all built with Duryea u/f’s.  Bx-37 had a conventional u/f and was the only class in this group to have transverse mounted air reservoirs.

It would be helpful if someone would post plans for the Santa Fe Duryea or photos of the Speedwitch car underbody.

I found two different types in my stash. One is a Sunshine mini-kit, "Rock Island Duryea Underframe, Superior Door, Decals for 10'6" IH Boxcar", and a set for a Frisco boxcar marketed for a short time by a modeler whose name escapes me. It's "#37DUR FRISCO BOXCAR U'FRAME & DOORS", and on the back of the package it says "CAST RESIN PARTS TO MODEL SL-SF 1937 AAR BOX CAR WITH DURYEA UNDER FRAME. USE WITH RED CABOOSE #RC-8001 BOXCAR KIT."

As mentioned there's the Speedwitch B&O M-26D/E kit, and also the Speedwitch Santa Fe Bx-26 boxcar kit, which also has a Duryea underframe. Haven't compared the two to see if they're different.
