Re: Decal order

Not to beat a dead horse BUT I've been waiting on some decals from him since Feburary. When I was inquiring about the price and availability of the decals, he quickly responded. After ordering I heard nothing for over a month. He then said something about getting a bad supply of paper and was waiting on some more. Since then, all my emails have gone without a response. Others have also said that they are waiting on orders from him on several of the train forums with the excuses of either bad paper or health issues. I'm thinking that I may not be getting anything from him at this point. Let me know if anyone gets any better info or response.

Re: TH&B Gons

The GN ICC valuation report dated 6/30/15 has a special equipment section identified as "duty paid" and used by roads in Canada. Included are 744 freight cars with numbers in the 300000s. All appear to be U.S. built.

If I understand the issue correctly, it was not who owned the railroad, but specifically whether US import duties had been paid on the freight cars. Assuming Canadian line used Canadian built equipment, they were allowed one trip into the US to deliver a load, and then the car had to return empty, or else they owed duty on the freight equipment they "imported" to conduct their business.

I seem to recall this was the reason for the Canadian Pacific forming the International of Maine Div., which was equipped with US built equipment which could run in normal interchange service in the US without problem.

    I'd be very surprised to find that partial or even entire ownership by an American line made any difference, Brian. You are still speaking of a Canadian road so the partial ownership by an American one should not effect anything as far as custom regs. are concerned and I doubt the interchange rules would be any different.
 
    Could you pleae contact me off list on another matter. Thanks.

Maybe Portland Car & Foundry?  They do a lot of GN sets.

Re: L&NE PS-1 fate

OK, got it.  I know pretty much what they should look like.  There's a photo of SOO 137246 on rr-fallenflags that's probably very similar lettering.

Model-wise, I was hoping for a patch, but I also see Microscale 87-1048 out there.  I think I see the subtle differences in the shape of the S.

I am in need of the following set of decals in HO. Great Northern wood box car with a 72" diameter  front facing goat as used in the 1930s. Did any one make this size decal (White with a Black background). Can someone send me in the right direction? Many Thanks Robert Deis    driver10@...

"Still looking for photos of the SOO 1700-2298 series 40'XM, formerly LNE.  I'd wanted to see if they were patched, or fully repainted, or somewhere in between."

I have a proof copy of the boxcar section of the SLH&TS freightcar book on this computer, and while I'm not at liberty to pass on copies, I will say that there is a photo of Soo 1824, and the car is completely repainted mineral red with a full compliment of Soo Line lettering, the second version of the "boxcar block" with the horizontal bar in the center of the S. The ends are visibly mineral red, as are the roof seam caps, but the roof panels show a lot of bare metal, but also patches of mineral red, so can't tell if the roof was completely painted, or just over spray. The photo was taken at Waukesha, WI, no date, but the car was re-weighed in 1963 and sports an ACI label

For what it's worth, none of the cars the Soo leased in the fifties were patch paints; all were full repaints although US Railway Leasing did do some odd stenciling variants.

Re: War emergency 52'6" gons

Thanks guys, exactly what I needed.  Maybe I didn't even need to have asked, since that same photo Brian mentions of LV 32667 is actually in the RPCyc.  It and the other photo, from eight years earlier, have the same lettering style so I don't even have to wonder about that.

I do have a major structural steel fabricator served by my railroad so I know this would be a good car for me.

Ron,

 

Jan 1960 ORER lists 247 cars in series 32600 to 32849  for the Lehigh Valley with this description “ Gond, wood sides, steel drop ends, flat bottom, wood floor”

Same Oct 1962, Oct 66 has 103, Jan 68 has 3, Apr 69 has none.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Be Well

I apologize for this late reply, but this thread fizzled while I wasn't looking!


While several theories have been presented about why these roofs would have had an overlay of wood, one idea was not brought up, and that is the insulation value of a wood roof, exposed to the sun, versus a metal roof. Considering these were ice reefers, mightn't that have been a factor?

Re: Micro Mark photo etch kit

Scott H. Haycock
 

Yes, It can.

What you need to do is create artwork for both sides of the material you want to etch. Assume brass for this discussion. The kit comes with a laminating machine to apply the artwork, printed on a special material using an inkjet printer, to the brass sheet. In this way, one side would remain unetched, while the opposite side would allow for the fold. The trick is in the artwork, and the careful registration of the masks.

In CAD, you generally draw full size, using actual dimensions, then print out to whatever scale you need.

I hope this helps.

Does anybody know if it can be used to create a 1/2 depth etch to create a fold line or is it pretty much just to etch out shapes?


Also when creating the art work do you draw it in 1:1 scale in 1/87 scale if that makes in sense what so ever.


Thanks,

Scott McDonald
