Jack would also probably be surprised as my latest purchase, a Ford 8N.

Re: Intermountain PFE R-40-25 question

Tim O'Connor
 

Jim

In Tony's example it's possible an aluminum roof could have been
applied in 1960 or 1961, since mechanicals and Ice Tempco cars were
getting aluminum roofs before the 1962 changes.

On the other hand I totally agree with him about rarity -- I have
seen very few photos of PFE ice reefers with aluminum roofs, period.
They did exist, but they seem to have been rare. And I have never
seen one painted like the Intermountain model.

      Jim, there exist photos of combinations like this, but I am pretty sure they were rare. Your citations of dates when these features became STANDARD are correct, but it may be that when a shop was processing a bunch of mechanical cars (which did have aluminum roofs), they just painted an ice car the same way. I would say it is NOT a foobie, but is likewise NOT reasonable, because I think it is a rarity at best.

So at this late stage in the game why can't we just get a list of what is left in stock from sunshine?

Re: iwata air brush problem/solution...

Jack Burgess
 

Harbor Freight might be cheaper than Chicago Air Brush Supply but I can never find what I'm looking for at Harbor Freight! I've only purchase a few things there (and there is a store a couple miles from my house) and only after checking online to ensure that they stock what I'm looking for. But, EVERY time, I need to ask a worker there where I can find what I've come to buy. (And there aren't many stockers around to ask.) They tell me the aisle number but I still can't find what I'm looking for even when I scour the shelves in that aisle from the floor to the ceiling. So....you want me to find a set of steel brushes which only measure 4" overall? I'll pay several bucks more to buy them online.

 

When I have a problem with an air brush, I go online to a place that sells air brushes. An e-mail to the company I referenced confirmed that one of those brushes was smaller than the needle on my air brush. I'm not a "shopper" so I don't get an answer from a website and then look for a cheaper place to purchase their suggestion. I'm just pleased that they confirmed that the product they had in stock would solve my problem.

 

Unlike my favorite hardware store or hobby shop, I don't go to Harbor Freight looking for something I might want...

Intermountain PFE R-40-25 question

Jim Mischke
 

 

 

I have an Intermountain Pacific Fruit Express R-40-25 reefer with mixed lettering features.   The side lettering has UP/SP black heralds on the right (1954 per Hartey RPM handout), yet an aluminum roof with black ends (introduced 1962).

 

Is this an Intermountain foobie or a reasonable hybrid?

Re: CNJ sinlge sheathed box car similar to Accurail

Eric Neubauer <eaneubauer@...>
 


CNJ did a lot of end replacements with both Murphy and Hutchins end. The series you mean with a steel framed end is 17000-17499 built by ACF in 1916. The diagrams have a note "Hutchins Dry Lading roof applied for repairs." The original roof was "Chicago Common Sense. 17000-17499 also built by ACF in 1916, but apparently Hutchins all steel roof was original on these. There is no indication than any of these had their ends replaced, however CNJ had some other orders of single sheathed box cars that were built with steel ends. The 1919 CBD has a photo of 17239.

Can anyone lead me to a good photo of a car with a sinlge sheathed end? Anyone have solid data regarding the roofs? Underframes? (was it a fishbelly like the Accurail cars or the Tichy flat car)?

 

With the abundance of photos of cars with Murphy ends is it possible that the single sheathed ended cars were rebuilt with replacement steel ends?

 

Anyone have an e-mail address for vic Roseman?

You don't want stainless, but I use stainless from Ngineering for many lighting projects. The tubing has an ID of .012" I cut it with a disk on a Dremel and debut it with a #80 drill.
