Armand,

A quick search of the archives reveals that the Athearn offset quad is perfect for a
number of pre-WWII hoppers, especially the B&M, B&O, C&O, DL&W, Erie,
MEC, M-K-T, MP.  This comes from a conversation we had about an "iron modeler" contest a few years back and in fact, Ted has given me the go ahead to use this project to restart the Virtual Modelers group.

Good Morning Clark,

What we were trying to say is that the RI mostly used GS gondolas for coal hauling during the steam era, having only wood Seeley type cars that were off the roster in the 30’s scrap drives and two small groups of steel two bay cars built in 1940 and early 1942.

RI 89600 – 897490 (150 cars) were built in 1940 by Pullman.  In RPCyc 25, they are described as part of 900 Pullman lot 5610 hoppers that had some unique features.  Accurail’s new car carries numbers in this series.  The most obvious difference is on the prototype, the two inner posts on the ends should be inward facing channels that terminate at the bottom of the end panel.  The location of the crease in the side panels, which parallels the slope sheet, is slightly different.  There is a very nice builder’s photo and comparisons with the Accurail model in the Remember the Rock magazine, Volume 8 numbers 3&4, which is recently published.

RI 89400 – 89599 (200 cars) were built in 1942 by ACF.  According to RPCyc 25, they are AAR standard 50 ton cars.  They had heap shield ends, as shown in our book.  There is a builder’s photo in RPCyc 9 along with one showing how about 129 of these cars had roofs added around 1950.  So, your choices probably are finding the Athearn car with heap shields, which are not exactly correct as the RI car has no notch in the heap shield.  Sunshine made a mini-kit for the hopper cover.

I hope that this is what you need.  Please let me know if need something more specific.

Regards,

Steve Hile

I’m considering modeling RI hopper 89456 from series 89400-89599. I’m confused (what else is new) by the caption in the Morning Sun color book. It lists different builders in this series, but but not much else.

So, my question is: Which model do I use for this car?

I have several builder photos of these M&StL cars but I'd love to see any
photos of a -lettered- raised-roof car and especially I'd like to see the
single-door version of the raised-roof cars. That's something I might like
to model! :-)

Tim O'Connor


At the request of some off line messages, I have been attempting to upload
the photos of M&StL auto boxcars I referenced this morning. However Yahoo is
not allowing me to upload photos. I keep getting an error message.
 
The photos have been posted to the MSTL yahoo list. And the article by Clark

Pullman Panel door (was)Superior six panel Superior door

Andy Carlson
 

Somewhere I have an RTV mold for a Pullman proprietory 6' wide door for a 10'6" IH boxcar. Bill Welch got a few of these doors over 12 years ago from me. I had then thought that Pullman doors were of a circa 1957 release, but Bill found a "Ya'all" user in 1953.

The pattern was made by Wayne Madison, who took the industries' then (and still is in my opinion) best proportioned Pullman door, the Kurtz Craft 7' wide Pullman door to make the narrower version. Wayne also made an 8' version, as well.

Lester, that car is a PS-1 alright, but the door is NOT a Superior door.
It is a Pullman Standard proprietary door and each panel is stamped with
a slight outward bulge. MNS 1202-1302 were built in 1957 and the only
correct models are made by Intermountain and Kadee. The McKean models
has anachronistic details -- a pre-1950 roof is the most obvious. The
AAR underframe is another.

The door I need is 6ft. wide and 10 Ft. tall to fit the McKean Models PS-1 kit I am working on ( purchased 1986 ) to save the paint and lettering as I do not have decals to redo.   A photo of the door I am looking for is at: www.rrpicturearchivees.net/showPicture.aspx?id=400233.  A door without placard would be best as I want to model it top mounted. I have reviewed the Kadee doors and they are not correct for the car I am doing unless I choose to change the numbers.  I hope this is the clarification needed.  Thank you and others for your time and effort to  respond..

Re: USAX box car

wow, thanks Bruce. weird.

I don't believe anything that seller says... he had a bunch of photos of the
B&M East Deerfield yard in the 1940's identified as some remote branchline in
New Hampshire... The car has a reweigh stencil that looks like 4-57 or some
other 4-5x so that's why I said 1950's.

Tim O'

Tim,

AFAIK, that car remains in that location today. The car, as well as at least one other,
were stored at Mount Union PA in the old East Broad Top yard. See

http://www.flickr.com/photos/7726011@N07/2336943015

If you look closely at the ebay photo, you can see that the siding the cars are on is overgrown.
The "1950s" date on the auction appears to be just an estimate and I think that the photo was
taken more recently, although still probably at least 40 years ago.

You can scratch build the doors out of styrene strips. I use 2X3 HO scale strips and keep the raised portions parallel with a card board cut with a paper cutter or a NWSL duplicutter. It takes me a few tries but

the results are good.

Re: box car identity

Doug, quoting Clark's article wrote:
 
 
"The autoloaders were defined as type 37+ which means they could load any automobiles built though the model year 1937 and possible beyond."
 
 
The "37" did indeed indicate that the auto loaders were suitable for 1937 models.  The "+" was applied to cars which had additional facilities added for loading the 1937 Lincoln Zephyr.  This series of cars, as built, was fitted with Evans Type "C+" loaders. 
 
The "C+" loader was supplied to M&St.L and six other roads only;  AT&SF (250), CRI&P (350), GM&N (25), N&S (25), L&A (25) , MK&T (100), and Frisco (10).   
 
After March 29, 1939 the door stencils would have been changed to the simplified auto car lettering standards as specified within Bulletin 28.     
 
When the cars were shopped (and had the inside height extended) they were refitted with Evans Type "E" loaders.  The Type "E" loaders remained within this series of ten cars until removed in May of 1952.

Here's a quick synopsis of the 55000 series M&StL automobile cars.

1937-Ten cars built by GATC in March

1941-Roof raised 6 inches During Jan, Feb & Mar.

1952-Auto loading devices removed in May

1953-Nailable steel floors replace wood floors

1956- Some if not all repainted in the red & white "Mikan" scheme

1959-Cars rebuilt and doors narrowed from 12 to 8 feet

1959-Evans DF loaders installed & cars asigned to Whirlpool in St. Paul, MN.

1977-Retired by C&NW.

Other information available to me indicates the 1959 rebuilds also received an 8-0 door and were renumbered to 2600-2618. The photo would indicate that not all were rebuilt and renumbered in this way.

Subject: [STMFC] Question for Steve Hile, or whoever answers : )

 

I’m considering modeling RI hopper 89456 from series 89400-89599. I’m confused (what else is new) by the caption in the Morning Sun color book. It lists different builders in this series, but but not much else.

So, my question is: Which model do I use for this car?

That’s good info. Thanks! I looked through about the first 10 RP Cycs for photos. Guess I’m going to be digging out vol. 25 now  :  ))
