Umm ... the 1/43 and 1/53 ORERs show no DD boxcars for the Georgia & Florida. As stated previously, G&F 8001-8060 had 6' doors.

"I'm not sure I've seen many chains or load binders on WWII era loads."

Chain used for securing open top loads was virtually nonexistent during the time span of this list. The same exception holds true for cable. There were a couple of approved applications utilizing cable, it was often used to secure the rotating body of track mounted cranes, shovels or back hoes.

Dennis correctly points out that theft was one factor for not using chain; wire or metal strapping was less expensive and both were much easier to tension as well.

Bill and Friends,

Absolutely, right! It's bogus. There were no double-door cars at all on the G&F, at least in 1958. They did have an 8000-8058 boxcar series. These were puny single-door, 40-ton cars of only 2926 cubic feet. They are listed in my ORER as having a STEEL UNDERFRAME, with no information about body framing. Sunshine offered these as kits 39.19 and 39.20 and Martin's catalog sheets say they are Howe truss cars with "indented" Dreadnaught ends.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

Georgia & Florida resin bash from F&C kits on ebay

brian k. dick
 

     Here is a link for a Georgia & Florida double door boxcar I came across Thursday on ebay. 
The price is beyond my range, none the less it is quite a beautiful car and I really admire the
talent of the custom builder in his effort. It appears to have the sides and underframe of a
F&C #6250 KCS auto car with the roof and ends of a F&C Wabash #3500 auto cars.  The one
mystery to me are the decals. Do any of you southeastern modelers know of a source of the
decals and/or have a link to a photo of the actual cars.  Again, nice work.
                                                                                    Thanks,   Brian Dick.

Great idea!  A little more searching and I found a much earlier patent for a "Self-locking load-binder" in 1889.

http://www.google.com/patents/US398714


Not much between there and the one you found.


================

Yeah there is. that's the ancestor of the lever style load binder. When in use the handle is parallel to the chain. Here's a link to an  HO scale model:

http://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/node/24655

I'm not sure I've seen many chains or  load binders on WWII era loads. Truckers use chains and binders, but truckers are present during unloading, and make sure they get their equipment back. Shipping via rail, when the load is unloaded, the chains and binders tend to sprout legs and get lost.

You certainly like to live dangerously.  There must be 25 guys who THINK that you have promised them stotage tanks.  You won't be able to cast them fast enough.  Should you happen to have three left over I sit with cash ready.

It has been pointed out to me that STMFC rules do not prohibit including the cost of an item to be offered for sale. OTOH, CRITICISM of such a cost of an item is included as a business practice and is not permitted. Hence, including the cost of a CD or other media form which includes issues of a previously printed item such as MM is permitted. Criticizing that cost is not.

Yes, we're getting back on track and can
"unofficially" state that we are hoping to ship
these by later this year, possibly early next year.
We're moving forward aggressively with this model in
particular as the project has been stalled for a number of
reasons. Noel and the NYCSHS have been a crucial part of
this project to make sure we get it right!
Official announcements will continue
to follow, but only when we're comfortable that the
factory will deliver. There is still plenty of time to place
orders, and we hope to have samples to bring to shows this
summer.

Not entirely true.  You're correct about the Trainlife website, but they DID NOT have online copies of Mainline Modeler. They had the Schleicher publications (Model RailroaDING, Railmodel Journal) and Prototype Modeler.


"I’d like to ask if anyone knows of this magazine being offered on CD or some other digital media?"

Yes.  See earlier posts in this thread about the C&O Historical Society offering.
