Re: pause for yard identification

Tim O'Connor
 


Many of the photos in the flickr collection need to be flipped.

I'm about 98% certain it is East St Louis. The collection title
is from whoever uploaded the photos. It's not all SP stuff.

Note the small access hatch on the end of the Monsanto tank car!

Above that tank car, also at the far left, is a United States Army
tank car, exactly like the Red Caboose model.

Two cars to the right of the Army tank car is a T&NO PS 2893, H-70-12,
built in 1954.

In the middle of the row of cars in front of that string, is a carbon
black covered hopper. Can't make out the owner.

There's a State of Maine r/w/b box car visible in the shot.

And naturally, conforming to Brock's Law #1, there is a Northern Pacific box car.

The photo is from 1954 or later, but not much later is my guess.

Tom, Tim,
     I flipped it horizontally, which helps a bit; the tank car looks to be Monsanto.  I don't recognize either the location or the diesel paint scheme.  The Barriger website says it's from an SP set and it is tagged as Southern Pacific; however, I can't find any identifying info such as location or date.  The EXIF data is no help since it just documents that the original was scanned today.  Anyone recognize the skyline (reversed)?

It probably doesn't help that the image is reversed, look at the NKP box car just after the switcher.   Also, that insulated  tank car with the dome platform, is that the Wabash "follow the flag" logo?

Any ideas? My only guess is East St Louis, Alton & Southern -- but
I can't find the diesel's paint scheme on the web.

Re: CH&D/B&O gondolas

rwitt_2000
 

Eric,

The information you have seems to indicate that you did see some equipment diagrams.

I missed those O-22a.  From the notes in the SofE these cars had "wood bottoms" so they lost their drop bottoms. Maybe a little more evidence that the B&O was moving gondolas out of coal service.

In 1925 there were 209 O-22a gondolas on the roster the peak number so ~40% of the fleet was converted Also in 1925 there were still 203 class O-22 with drop bottoms on the roster. So in 1925 ~80% of those original CH&D gondolas were still operating.

Bob,
 
Apparently I found something somewhere. I have over 10 years of scribbled notes on my last Pressed Steel Car builder printout and nothing is easy to find until I put it the right place in the list. It indicates that CH&D 26000-26499 were confirmed as PSC and that B&O 238500-238999 O-22 became 338500-338599 class O-22a. Perhaps I saw a diagram sheet somewhere. Wish I could reconfirm all this. CH&D 26000-26499 were ordered in 1-10.

Too bad the image is only a thumbnail, nice NYS&W single sheathed boxcar. Looks a lot like the ERIE boxcar right next to it. Is this coincidence?

C&O hoppers

Bill Lane
 

I just finished decaling a C&O hopper for me. That got me thinking about weathering the car. Is it me or did the C&O hoppers look much cleaner and newer than other roads? The car I just decaled was built in 1948. PRR H21 were much older.

 

Comments? Directly to bill@...  if you want.

 

Thank You,

Help locating Intermountain Reefer kits

Andy Carlson
 

Hello Bruce-

I wish to correct you on your post. Intermountain offers their whole line of undecorated kits to their dealers. While not all are available all of the time, the fill ratio has been very good over the last few years. I sell Intermountain (and Red Caboose) undecorated kits constantly throughout the year, and any other Intermountain dealer is able to do so too if they wish. I am unaware of any Intermountain product which is available by direct sales only.

Intermountain did consolidate prices earlier this year to bring the older issue kits up to match the later kits' retail prices--no more cheap boxcars! Most kits retail now for $19.95, just like Red Caboose.

Re: Help locating Intermountain Reefer kits

You can order direct from Intermountain. There website says they are in stock.

Be aware though that the person who answers the phone and happily takes your order doesn't always know whether they are really in stock or not. Or try having your local dealer try ordering them for you.

I would like to find a prototype photo of a (Steam Era) W&LE two bay covered
hopper. I am building an F&C model, and it is the only car that their
instructions do not include a prototype photo, only a photo of the model.
Apparently these cars were numbered in a very low number series; the example
model photo is a car numbered 12. Open triangle between the hopper bays.
Any assistance will be appreciated.
