Re: Modelling a PS-5 Gondola in HO

There was an ad in the 1961 Car Builders' Cyclopedia with a drawing of the side and end of a PS-5. No underframe drawing and not the usual CBC detail type drawing.

Many years ago National Car Cast of Canada produced styrene side and end castings for a NYC gon. The sides had great similarities to the PS-5 sides but that every other of the PS-5 side ribs were heavier than the others, which should be fixable.

Subject: [STMFC] Modelling a PS-5 Gondola in HO

Hi All,

This came up recently on the Rutland list and I am looking for more
information. Does anyone know of photos or plans or even a kit of the
Pullman Standard PS-5 Gondola. I am looking to build a few that the
Rutland had. They were 52'6" inside length. Photos from the Rutland
are few and far between.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
