Re: Interesting car anybody have some back ground on it?

Donald B. Valentine

Photos of the LCIX cars have often appeared in Cyclopedias and Railway Age over the years but I do not recall anything describing how they were set up internally. From previous efforts in determining actual color from black & white photos, particularly with the earliest delivery of B&M E-7's (sorry Mike), it would seem the the most likely color would be something close to the silver tone of aluminum. In other words silver but lacking in reflective quality like a flat paint.

Rich, the RAILWAY AGE article has two photos of the cars, both of which also appear in the 1937 CBC. There's no mention of color in the article. I can send you copies of the two pages if you want, but they're from a bound volume here at the Colo. RR Museum so some of the text at the very left margin of the first page is dark & distorted where it dives into the binding. Let me know (off list at tcmadden at Q dot com) if you'd like the copies.

Does anyone know what color the Liquid Carbonic cars were?
In the Car builders Cyclopedia from 1937, pg 194, figure 165, there is
reference to a description of the cars in Railway Age August 10, 1935 page
Does anyone have that issue of Railway age?

A guess would be Liquid Carbonic, and the second builder's photo on the page
clearly shows a build date of 1935. I think LC was shipped in cylinders, but
someone else may have more accurate information.

I seem to recall that Ambroid or someone of that era in HO offered a kit for
a similar car.
