Re: Ladders with attached stirrups


Ladders,I have seen photos of tank cars with ladders on only one
side.This raises some questions;was this practice restricted to one type or
one car builder?.How can one be sure to be correct by mounting the ladder
on only one side?Armand Premo

Intermountain sells PS-1 style ladders with an inset stirrup.
Des Plaines Hobbies had Canadian style ladders done with
an in-line stirrup for 10'0" box cars.

The questions are, how many rungs do you need, what is
the height of the ladders you need, and how wide are the
rungs? There are many valid permutations...

Does anyone know who manufactures freight car side ladders with the
stirrups attached, if anyone? I seem to recall that these have been
produced in styrene or Delrin, but I cannot yet locate them in any of
the usual haunts.
