Re: Erie Boxcars 71xxx series

I think the series started with 70,000. There are good photos of the ends on the Fallen flags site (Erie-> box cars).


There is a second, similar series of cars with a different end (4 vertical braces?)  and different roof (roof on this second series is like the old AHM double sheathed, double door box).


If I'm not mistaken I wrote the referenced ELHS article.


I've seen many photos, most in MOW service taken by John LaRue. My recollection is you can barely see any side panels (see side shot on the Fallen flags site).


The original cars were single sheathed auto box cars. I've seen one good photo of an original car from the NMRA. Much of my information came from a photocopy of a page from the Erie employees magazine.


Ted located a drawing of the original double sheathed car; he sent me a copy which I misplaced.

Re--ERIE 70000-70999 and 71000-71567 Boxcars

The sides were six panels of welded sheet steel. Work was done in the mid-1930s.  The vertical seams and diagonal brace patterns are visible due to the welding process.  Cars were well described with good photo illustrations in Volume 3, Number 1 of The Diamond (1984) published by Erie Lackawanna Historical Society.  I think there was another issue with a drawing of the car but I would have to dig deeper to find it.  End sheathing was one piece of steel sheeting with outside structure somewhat like B&O's "indestructible end."  These cars have an appealing simplicity ripe for scratch-building.  There is a car at the Salamanca, New York RR museum.

Al,

That is, of course, because the M18 Hellcat was an open topped tank destroyer.  Highly detailed M18 models in HO can be had from Trident Models.  I have 2 in the to build pile to go on a flat car.

O Fenton Wells
 

That would be great Bill, we appreciate that.  Even though we will buy the Speedwitch model ..when it comes, our little group is anxious to build and we have most of the parts so we will go with our own then wait for Ted.  Any idea when he will release?
Thanks

Rich,
Try German eBay.   www dot ebay dot de
In the past I've bought lots of Roco and earlier Umex construction equipment at a fraction of the US eBay cost.  Just be aware of the higher shipping costs and take that into consideration.
I usually buy 'junk boxes' which the Germans often label as 'convolut.'
PS:  If you don't read German I can help if you like.

Out in the Badlands of New Mexico where seldom is heard a German word.

Steve,
 
The ones I am seeing on ebay are either expensive or compromised somehow (e.g. poor paint and decals).  But I may have to go that route and strip and repaint them.  And while an ebay search for "Roco M-47" does turn up the person listing 23 tanks, none of them are M-47s.

Someone has a lot of 23 of them on ebay right now. I found others available
by googling Roco M47. They would look great in a steam freight car train.

Subject: [STMFC] Roco M-47 tanks

I am building a train of flat cars that is moving a company of M-47 tanks.
I've got the flat cars (9 Roco/AHM flats with 6-wheel trucks, and two
others) and all the ancillary vehicles (a half-track, a 2 1/2 ton truck, a
tank recovery vehicle, and two jeeps), and 7 tanks. I need a total of 18
tanks (11 more) and I'm running up against a bit of a wall finding them.
Yes, some are available on eBay, but at $15 or more each this is getting
expensive. I'm hoping that some of us Steam Era Freight Car people were
military modelers in past lives and have some of the Roco M-47s squirreled
away somewhere and would be willing to part with them for a reasonable
price.

Anybody?

Anybody at all?
