Thanks for the link, Ray - a lot of good pitures there, particularly the PRR ore docks with the Hewlett ("Hulett") ore unloader. 

One picture, though, shows how really old this collection is: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/fsac/item/fsa1992001554/PP/resource/  .  There is NO WAY you could do this today.


Wow.

Pierre,

It looks like DT&I received the cars in 1953. I have a few photos and the Main Line Modeler Diagrams from an F&C X26c Instruction sheet. I can scan and email you them if that is what you are looking for? Please email me off list.

These photos are all in the public domain and anyone has the right to
publish them, etc. If you go to this Time magazine site:

http://lightbox.time.com/2013/01/02/the-past-comes-alive-history-in-high-def
inition/#1
<http://lightbox.time.com/2013/01/02/the-past-comes-alive-history-in-high-de
finition/%231>

...and scroll down to the article under the lead photo, you'll learn (as I
did a day or two ago) that the person behind Shorpy does more than just post
the photos...the scans in the Library of Congress have not been color
corrected or had the levels adjusted. Compare the original scans of Delano's
images in the Library of Congress and those on Shorpy's site and you can see
the difference.

I'll check my photo collection tonight; IIRC, I have a photo of one of these cars from Rich Burg's collection.

Re: seaboard boxcar

Steve Lucas <midrly@...>
 

Excellent blog post by Tony on modifying this car to a Seaboard model. I'll have to print it off--there is a "peacetime" use for this model that I bought in a fit of ignorance. As for Atlas decorating this thing up as a CN/GTW 1936 rebuild I might be less charitable than Ben Hom has been in describing it.

Unless they've changed the rectangular panel roof, there is something weird about the way the panels come all the way to the edge of the roof.

Larry -

I think that Pat obtained the drawings from one of those CBC's, so it is actually a model of the NC&StL car. However, I recall that someone (Richard Hendrickson?) did an article in the model RR press about the NC&StL cars, and that there were two series of them on the NC&StL differing in brake equipment or something? SP&S also had similar cars.

A.T. Kott
All true, A. T., and the other RR that had cars built to the same design was the Florida East Coast. Also, the Texas & Pacific had some flat cars that were dry close. Those cars have been modeled in several scales in numbers out of all proportion to their importance because there is a splendid set of drawings of one series of NC&StL cars in the 1928 ands 1931 CBCycs.
