Re: H&BT Hopper

Thomas Olsen <tmolsen@...>

Good Morning,

I would not hold my breath waiting for the authors of "From Coal To
Glory: The History of Huntingdon and Broad Top Mountain Coal Company and
Railroad" to put out the third book. I have written them twice over the
last 10 years asking if there had been any progress on the third volume
(soft cover as were the previous two). As of this date, I have never
received an answer.

You may wish to contact Randy Anderson as he models the H&BTM and may
have the information you are seeking. Dave and Jayce, contact me off
list and I will give you Randy's address.

This small road is important to me as it interchanged Supplee Milk
Reefers and other freight with the PRR's Middle Division Main Line at
Huntingdon, Pa. which is going to be hopefully the mid-point of the
layout that I am going to begin construction on this year.

Dave, there are a few partial views of these cars in the
series "From Coal to Glory". I don't know if there's enough there to
help you. But there is to be a third volume, and the authors would be
a likely source for better views. Their last volume was done in
1992, but here's their mailing address: Baughman & Morgan, P.O.Box
188, Saxton, Pa. 16678-0188. (Maybe some interest in another book
will stoke them to finish the series...M.J.Buckelew
Anyone know what Huntingdon & Broad Top 3151-3250 looked like?
other steel hoppers were early channel-side cars, but these have
some odd
dimensions that suggest something else; perhaps a Gla derivative?
