Re: Bulk Wheat Loading

Bob and all,

I've had this video for sometime now, which shows the loading of Bulk Wheat into a boxcar. It's a very interesting and educational video...about 15 minutes long. Even though it takes place in the Eighties in Canada...the equipment and handling method hasn't changed much from the early part of the last century. Hope you all enjoy it.

Brain, no.

The decals are own drawings made by my friend Jörg (Joerg) who painted an decaled this model.

This weekend I finished the firts of five billboard reefer with "White Swan" advertising.
Models were built after a sketch and some prototype information from a NWSL reprint of Seattle Car and Foundry Co. of 1913.

Re: Paint/ lettering schemes suitable for late 1940s - beginning 1950s?

Many thanks Mike! The background of my question is that I am doing a little clearance to my collection of cars - but don't have enough knowledge and library to be sure in every case if the car would fit "my" era. So this (really nice)  Kadee car has to go.
 
Best Regards

Johannes,

 
Regarding the Monon car, this is the first series of cars delivered in this scheme that i can find.  The Monon also had a similar series of hoppers delivered in 1940 numbered 41500-41699.  These cars eventually had the same paint and lettering as your car, but the earliest date I see on the photos I have with this scheme is 1955. As I say the cars were similar, the 1954 cars were AAR standard while the 1940 cars were a Pullman variation on the AAR design, so not a great trade at any rate.
 
Regards,
 
Mike Aufderheide

 


Re: White Swan billboard reefers

Hello Bernd,
 
congrats to this fantastic model! As you know I already had the opportunity to examine it in person at the FREMO-meeting, but now with all the final detailing like grabs and door hardware it looks even much better, of course!
 
>> I should write that painting and decaling was done by a very good friend. <<
 
And you should add that the decals themselves are completely customized in a joint-effort between you and the painter. ;-)
 
Many greetings
 
Johannes

Bulk Wheat Loading

This is a link to a Library of Congress photo showing bulk wheat being blown into a boxcar in 1941:

Re: Tank Car: COSX 823

Bruce Smith
 

Tim,
Incorrect… but close.  AC&F Type 11, 10,000 gallon car.  The identifying difference is the single instead of double rows of rivets on the radial seams.  The type 17 had double rows.

BTW, the repack stencil on the boxcar is PRPKD CH 12 21 35  CB&Q RR  so the likely date is 1936 even though the date created/published is listed as 1940 on the site.

Regards

Bruce

Bob,

 

I don’t know about the tank car, but the automobile box car has remnants of a door seal visible in the upper left corner of the image. It looks like a portion of one batten is flapping on part of the paper and not attached to the door.

Good to know Bill. I'm currently building six of these cars in WP livery. Missing one 7' youngstown door though. Any chance Atlas might have these for sale as spares? If not I'd have to use a Kadee door but this has one major flaw: the cast on tackboard.
