Larry,

I was able to access and read your uploads just fine.  I had to zoom in and out (on my computer if I hold down the CTRL key and then roll the wheel on my mouse, I can zoom in and out).  Thank you for calling attention to them!

Soil pipe versus sewer or water pipe

rdietrichson
 

Hi all,
The pipe that Shapeways produced is commonly called soil pipe and is used primarily in building construction. Normally cast iron or ductile iron pipe has a shorter and more tapered bell. The comment that these two varieties of pipe come in 18' sticks is correct. A fitted gasket for the cast or ductile pipe is inserted into a groove in the bell, and the spigot end of the next joint of pipe is slipped in, creating a water tight seal. Before rubber gaskets fiber and lead joints were used.

Bill, I have two photos of WofA 11017 reweighed in ’56.  One is a broadside (possibly the one in Bob’s book); the other is a 7/8 view showing the B end.  It’s a bit fuzzy, but it you want it I’ll see what I can do with it in Photoshop.  It shows that the car had, by that time, been retrofitted with a Miner poweer handbrake.

Re: open car loads (pipe sections with flared ends)

O Fenton Wells
 

The Southern shipped tons of cast iron and later ductile iron pipe from the
southeast, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina and other states were the
cast iron pipe foundries were. Alabama Pipe, Glamorgan (sp?), US Pipe were
a few of many. The pipe joints were mechanical, flanged and later a bell
joint pipe, with a forced fitting and a butyl compression ring..
Here is a cover of the Southern Railway employee magazine from the early
1960's showing mechanical joint pipe being loaded into a rebuilt gon.

Western of Alabama hopper details

al_brown03
 

Another day, another project …


I’m detailing an Accurail USRA twin hopper as a Western of Alabama car, series 11000-11044.  (They were “clones” built in 1923, not USRA originals.) I’ve seen the broadside photo in Bob Karig’s hopper book, so now I’m interested in the details on the B end: brake wheel, hand brake, brake step, cut lever, retainer valve. Can anyone direct me to a photo showing the B end, or a diagram book?


As a fallback, the other Georgia Group roads had hoppers with the same dimensions: Atlanta & West Point 31000-31054, Georgia Railroad 21000-21049. I suspect the three roads may have split an order, and A&WP 31100-31124 were very similar. Photos of these series may serve.


Thanks in advance,


Al Brown, Melbourne, Fla.

Re: open car loads (pipe sections with flared ends)

Yes, that's what cast iron pipe and fittings look like.  Since the 1990s they have been ductile iron instead of gray cast iron, but the shapes are unchanged.

Pipe is typically 10 or 18 feet long.

     These are very attractive and would make great pieces on a loading dock. But it seems to me that they would not ordinarily be shipped in gondolas.

Pierre,

 

While my choices are hardly unbiased, I would choose the CB&Q Class GS-1/2 and Class GS-7/8 gondolas. These drop bottom cars are not otherwise available, and it would be a shame to loose them forever. I need at least ten more, ideally 20 more.

As a kit manufacturer I am reluctant to revisit any of the cars that were offered by Sunshine at this point.
The volume of sales would be so hard to predict, which ones would you choose?

Re: Are conductor's lists of interest?

Dave,
 
Thanks for posting that example of a Conductor's List.  That is the first time I had seen one.  Very valuable piece of history for a serious rail fan/prototype operator.  I hope that others who may have such documents are as willing to share with the group.  I would be especially interested in seeing such a document from the CB&Q in the mid 50's to the mid 60's.  Maybe someone from this group or the CB&Q group would be willing to post something.
 
Is VT for Virginia Tech?  My daughter-in -law has a masters in music performance from Virginia Tech.  She can plat almost every instrument you hand her as long as she has some sheet music.  She currently works at a college in the Chicago area and I have seen her on stage  playing the piano as accompaniment as well as several percussion instruments.  Amazing talent.

I posted an example PDF from the conductor train book in the files section (see Southern Railway Trains) folder.  This way any volunteers can use this as a reference.  I hope to provide the transcribed info in that folder later.  Then I can ask about the individual cars and how I might model them.

I have 4 transcription volunteers to-date.  I am tracking who gets what.  Send me a note offlist if you wish to help.
