Bill,

 

               Yes, the Loctite cap appears to help to keep the tube open.  I have not experienced any clogs with Loctite ACC.

 

Regards,

I was not familiar with the Microscale product—available since 2011—and found this video about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr81jLUdNZ8

 

I believe Loctite also makes a product that can be used with Engineering Plastics as well but I cannot put my hands on it the moment.

 

Regarding my complaint about the slippery tips accumulating ACC, I am meticulous about wiping the tips clean, as well as squeezing the lower sides of the tube to encourage the ACC to receed back into the tube. The problem with buildup seems to begin about halfway into the life of tube when for whatever reason the ACC becomes harder to coax back down into the tube.

 

I could not tell from the responses. Do the Loctite tubes have something inside the cap that minimizes buildup of residue or help keep the tip open?

While I agree with the comments about the Loctite products and use it regularly, I have also been impressed by and use Microscale’s Micro Bond series.  For the latter, it does help to wipe off the “snout” before replacing the cap. Occasional clogs are easily opened with a small probe.

I'll second Andy Miller's recommendation. Loctite has become my favorite superglue. - Andy

Claus,

 

Thank you very much for the great photo.  Monon freight car photos are rare from this era.  BTW what I have on this series:

 

26000-26999, built 1913 by ACF, 40 ft, 50ton, drop bottom.  A similar series (25000-25999) was built a year earlier.  All seem to have been retired in the '30s.   High sulphur Indiana coal was unkind, no doubt. 

 

Regards,

Claus,

Very interesting. Hopefully the cars were wrapped after being loaded to protect them from the elements.

Friends,

Most ACC glues will keep longer in the bottle if stored in a refrigerator. I have a bottle of Fletch Tite (originally used for attaching feathers to arrows) that is seven years old and still flowing. I recommend putting the ACC inside a jar with a tight lid to avoid outgassing that might contaminate food stored in the refrigerator.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

Bill,

I have had very good results with Locktite ACC; available at Home Depot. While it sometimes hardens up at the tip, it does not adhere to the container and can easily be removed to reopen the nozzle. It also has excellent shelf life.

Isn't it interesting that the only slippery plastic ACC bonds to is the material used for the nozzle or tip?!

Is there a brand that comes with a cap that has a plug inside to help keep the tip clear?

Re: T &E Freight Cars

Might it be P&E? Peoria & Eastern 3700-4116 were USRA-design 40' steel box cars built in 1924, though I dunno how many were still around in '58.

Be advised that Stan's kit models the 1945-46 cars and NOT CGBX 603, the car in the photo linked in John Barry's original post.  Best starting point for that car would be a 1932 ARA boxcar model with 4/4 Dreadnaught ends and rectangular panel roof.


     Right. That 1932 box car does need a bunch of new horizontal rivet rows. Obviously there was a lot of reinforcement for the tanks inside. I have one of the Sunshine kits built up, and can send a photo off-list if anyone needs to see what I mean.

T &E Freight Cars

Gary Wildung
 

Found a freight car in dispatchers report on the Northern Pacific in 1958. It said T & E car number 4094 had a hot box and set out. Look up in OER 1958 could not find. Tried the T&P but not a good car number. Any ideas what railroad this is or type of car
Thanks Gary


Re: Painting HO Scale Brass

Edward
 

On tail end of the Weaver/Scalecoat paint order sheets that may be printed for mail-in orders, it reads:

"Sorry - We cannot ship paint and paint related products (thinners, etc.) outside of the continental United States nor can we honor paint sales to Texas!"

Why this is so is not explained.
At one time (and perhaps still true), bottled wine could not be shipped to certain states either.

Smells fishy to me - seems along the lines of hobby shops telling you that companies are out of business to avoid having to do special orders.
