Re: Is that an SAL ventilated box (UNCLASSIFIED)

The Pittsburg area had a number of glass manufactures. My wife collects Depression Glass and several of the patterns she likes came from glass companies in the Pittsburg area. It could be the car is loaded with product from one of those factories, ie large bowls, urns, pots, vases, etc. The placard or sign is probably a caution against humping or hard switching.

Hello Ed,

I use tubing from Ngineering (www.ngineering.com, also listed in the Walthers catalog). It is stainless, but it's easy to get. To cut it, hold the short piece you want with pliers and use a motor tool cutoff wheel to cut just above the plier jaws. The long piece you cut off will be easier to find than the little piece you're left holding. All with safety glasses, of course!

Merry Christmas,

Andy


Re: CNJ sinlge sheathed box car similar to Accurail

Eric Neubauer <eaneubauer@...>
 


Gee, I totally forgot about that demo CNJ photo roster I had up  on my own site. Doh! Looking at the car Craig attributes to 17000-17999 and comparing to the photos of the 17000s, the differences in several small details like the gussets between the side braces and the striker casting makes me question his attribution. It doesn't seem to match any of the other CNJ cars, so perhaps it isn't even a CNJ car at all.

Re: Intermountain PFE R-40-25 question

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.

Re: iwata air brush problem/solution...

Jack Burgess <jack@...>
 

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?
