Oh great, now I'm REALLY bummed out that I couldn't go! What a
great display of models. Nice to see all the truck models too.
Thanks for posting so many pictures !

The only B&O photo I've seen shows a car with a very unusual 3-panel door.
Did the B&O cars use any other doors, and are there online photos of them?

I would be more excited over Buckeye ends. Then I could do an NP rebuild.
Assuming that any of these parts are available in kit form.

Todd Horton asked:
"How many roads had the Deco ends?"

One original owner (C&O) and one secondhand owner (B&O).

STMFC members,

Just passing some new information from InterMountain's
web site per an

Aug. 7 update.



http://www.intermountain-railway.com/currentflyers.html



The announcement includes two new variations of their HO and
N 1937 AAR

box car.



1. "NSC-2" ends used by Canadian National Railway
on nearly 5,000 cars.

Listed in the flyer are cars numbered CN 520000-521499 built
in 1945 by

the National Steel Car Co. with Serves All Canada monogram
and green

maple leaf.



2. Deco ends and 3-panel Creco doors used on C&O
5400-5499 built by

GATC in 1937. These C&O cars came with Viking roofs.
Shown are two

schemes, as-built with black doors and 1949 repaint with
C&O for

Progress steam trail. The 3-panel Creco doors also applied
to C&O

5250-5399 having 4-5 Dreadnaught ends.



Several other cars are new paint schemes on the IM 1937 AAR
model

having 4-5 Dreadnaught ends. Reservations by Sept. 30 and an
ETA of

March/April 2016.

Regards,

Ed Hawkins

Re: St Louis RPM

Pierre Oliver
 

This was my second time in St Louis.
Indeed a different event than Naperville. It's clear that Collinsville is growing and will be successful for some time to come. And it will no doubt evolve.
Will it supplant Naperville? There's the question for me. I heard a lot of rumour/fearmongering about the demise of Naperville.
To which I have to comment.
The RPMs are like RMC, they are contributor driven. The meets are only as good as the effort put forth and the energy of the speakers. If you're not seeing the kind of things you want to see, do a clinic, or find someone who can/will.
Constantly having the same core group of speakers is boring for the participants and the speakers suffer from burnout.
It's your hobby too. Get involved.

The last couple of years I’ve seen a few “Old Breed” modelers at this meet. Old breed meaning N’ville/CCB “core” STMFC freight car guys. I’m curious as to what they thought of this meet beings it’s so different from the two before mentioned.

Re: C&BT Shops Car Wanted

Tim O'Connor
 

Garth, do you mean kit #600 ?

Tim O'

Does anyone have particular C&BT Shops car in their never-to-be-built
pile? I'm looking for a 12-panel, 7' door, straight panel roof car with
4/4 ends. It must be the version with separate ladders and other
details. I know of no prototype for this particular car, but I have two
lettered for my freelance Virginia Midland, and would like another. They
look pretty nice when upgraded.

I am only interested in this combination of features. If anyone has such
a car they would like to part with for sale or trade, please contact me
OFF-LIST.

Thanks much.
