Anyone know where I can find info on the trailer used to heat the material and pump it out of the car?

As I recall, back in the steam era the only requirement was to stencil the initial of the servicing road, station symbol where the work was done, and the date in 1" letters on either the brake reservoir or cylinder. There was no reason to include the initials COTS; the data was on the brake equipment, and everybody knew that's what it pertained to. The use of the COTS initials is a sixties era thing, where the date was moved to the consolidated stencil on the car side.

Since the required information is the same as a repack stencil, just trim the RPKD letters off that decal and use it.

Re: New Kadee HGC Trucks

Eric Hansmann
 

It's astounding that this comes to light on the very day I wrap up changing a dozen Walthers Proto T-Section Bettendorf trucks from sprung to rigid. 

Kadee also has these listed with the code 88 semi-scale wheel sets. I look forward to installing some of these new HGC versions on the upcoming Accurail 36-foot box cars.

Model Paint Bottle Cap problems

Ken Adams
 

Same cap problems exists for all Floquil Polly S acrylics as for lacquer based paints.  

Needed: Air tight and self cleaning bottle caps for Floquil, Model Master lacquer and  acrylic paints.

I know a lot of people including myself have huge numbers of Floquil and Polly S in their paint lockers/shelves but I understand it is mostly a discontinued product so I would wonder about the investment return on such a product.

I was advised that I had forgotten to update the inventory for the P&LE doors on the site, meaning they still showed as zero inventory. Not true! They sold out faster than I could have imagined. There are more in the works. Please be patient!

Re: [EXTERNAL] All-Time Yankee Clipper & Speedwitch kit lists

Gatwood, Elden J SAD
 

Bill;

I do not have the lists (sorry), but would add that Steve Funaro told me he cast all of Yankee Clippers kits including the PRR GSH, PRR X31A (both of which I built), and PRR X31A roofless coke car, under an arrangement that ended somewhat abruptly. Also, the YC PRR GSH and the F&C GSH I bought (at least) were not exactly the same kit. The YC castings were thicker early dark yellow resin, and the F&C thinner later lighter yellow resin castings. Both had similar quality decals and instructions.

The PRR X31A roofless coke car was NEVER offered by F&C.
