Tell Tale Extra: Seasoned Eatings!

TELL TALE EXTRA: SEASONED EATINGS!

Wyoming's own Al Krug and Berlin's own Inez Mischitz recently walked into the most expensive hotel in St. Louis. Upon entering the hotel restaurant, Al buttonholed a waiter and wailed, ''I have a pal here for dinner that's been subsisting for years on cereals and short stogies. We have got more than Bernhardts tent full of money and we want the nose bags crammed with all the Chief Deveries de cuisine. Object is no expense.'' Inez, never a parvenu, demanded, ''You see the chef and order a dinner for us such as you serve to Dave Francis and the general passenger agent of the Iron Mountain when they eat here!''

Looking for Cocoa Beach roomate

Claus Schlund \(HGM\)
 

Hi List Members,

Hopefully out listmaster will not consider this out of scope for the list...

I just found out yesterday that I will be able to attend Prototype Rails in Cocoa Beach this year.

Looking for someone to share a room with and split hotel costs. I plan to arrive Thurday (via my car from the Tampa area) and will be leaving Saturday night. Thus Thurday and Friday nights are the only nites I will be lodging at the hotel.

I don't smoke, don't drink, don't snore, don't chase women. My only vice is I model freight cars.

I will have my automobile available, and should my prospective roomate and I mutually agree we could use it to get around the local area. This might save someone the cost of renting a car. Furthermore, if you are flying (or taking the train) into Orlando we might possibly be able to arrange for me to pick you up late in the day on Thursday in Orlando and we could drive together to Cocoa Beach, since Orlando is (sort of) on my way and I have a bit of flexibility in my schedule.

Please reply OFF LIST to

Claus (atsign) HELLGATEMODELS (period) COM

Thanks - Claus Schlund

Re: Red Caboose flat car weights

Matt Goodman
 

Normally, I wouldn't parse this, but this is the STMFC list.

#9 shot is much too small to be referred to as "buck" shot. Just plain old "shot" is more accurate. 

The word buckshot is a bit of a slang term anyway, referring to shot sizes (note the plural) that were once used on deer sized game.  "Birdshot" is its analog for the smaller shot sizes (though I don't like that word either!). 

6 - 9 are the best sizes for weighting freight cars; 12 can be found, but isn't as common. 7 1/2 or 8 is likely the smallest you would find in your local sporting goods stores as they are common for hunting and clay target sports (trap, skeet, sporting clays).

Got #9 buckshot at a local gun shop about 15 years ago. Back then it cost $25.00 for 25 lb. Wonder if it can still be purchased given all the hoopla about lead these days. Have foung all kinds f lead tire weights jus walking around town.. But Lead being so pliable, just about any shape can be pounded flat.

Hi Tony and List Members,

How appropriate. Just as Richard was willing to share his knowlege with us while he was here on earth, it is wonderful he will still be sharing his resources now that he is in that great freight yard in heaven.

The entirety of Richard Hendrickson's photo collection, heavily oriented toward freight cars (and the Santa Fe) has now been transferred to the California State Railroad Museum, along with most of his books, including ORER and Cyclopedia copies, his sets of freight car diagrams from a variety of railroads, and his many folders of research; notes. How soon the material may be accessible depends on CSRM archive recording and placement for use, but I would assume not excessively long.
I did not attempt to count the photo collection. Richard said more than once that it exceeded 30,000 photos, and having had it in my garage for awhile, I am sure that was no exaggeration. I believe it to be an unequalled research resource for freight cars, and it will now be accessible into the future.

While I’m sure that this will be a very difficult Christmas for the Hendrickson family, their generosity in making sure that Richard’s collection remains available is a wonderful gift to us all. Thanks to them (and those who have helped make this possible) and I wish them the very best Christmas possible.

Re: [SPAM] Re: Krylon clear flat v. Red Caboose silver paint

Nelson Moyer <ku0a@...>
 

Only for the Q baggage car because I wanted to maintain compatibility
between the decal sealer and the body paint. Another issue was that Krylon
flat aluminum gave a better (less grainy) finish than any of the silver
colored model paints. Floquil was the worst in that respect.
