Re: triple hopper question

Frank Valoczy <destron@...>

Hi Al,

I'm in TT scale; if I were in HO, then my tolerance with regards to
details like that would be rather more strict. The model-to-come will be
developed using drawings and photos of PM cars, so they should be correct
for that and NYC, but overall, no, that's not an essential feature. Maybe
in ten years' time, though... technologies such as 3D printing have been a
great gift to TT, and I can only see the situation improving.

The NYC and PM series you mention both have the "sloped-stepped"
end-side-sheet taper. Is this an essential feature? To me in HO it would
be; but I've forgotten what scale you're in.

Wondering if anyone might be able to help me a bit... I'm trying to
determine what all could be modelled with a 3-bay offset-side hopper
visually like the NYC 904000-904999 or PM 15000-15249 series.

I already know of a number of such, but went through the ORER looking
other possible matches, and am curious if anyone can confirm or deny
these. I'm looking for cars that are visually similar - if it looks
at first glance, that's good enough - right number of panels, etc; minor
dimensional difference (within a foot) aren't important - I don't have
variety of available models you HO guys do, to let me be quite that

So the possibles I found...

CIL 4501-4601
CN 108600-109099, 109105-109954, 119000-119499
CP 360000-360724
DT&I 1600-1649
Louisiana & Arkansas 4400-4799
M&StL 66001-66499
MP 61000-61999, 62000-62759
Missouri-Illinois 6350-6449
NKP/W&LE 78000-80999
Ontario Northland 140300-140324
P&LE 3000-3099
Southern 70000-70299

Thanks in advance!
