ADMIN: Browsers, etc.

Guys, the last ten or so messages on the STMFC have been out of scope. Note the STMFC rules: ALL SUBJECTS OTHER THAN THOSE DIRECTLY ASSOCIATED WITH STEAM ERA FREIGHT CARS ARE PROHIBITED FROM MEMBER MESSAGES. Thus, all admin, security, or "policing" functions will be conducted only by myself or my representatives.

 

And, members must sign messages with their full names. If the member's address IS their full name exactly [ to the left of an @ sign ] or simply their full name, that is acceptable as a signature.

 

The horse is, however,  out of the barn and information being discussed is, apparently, very useful to members enabling them to use available software to study steam era frt cars. Therefore, discussion about browsers will be permitted for the remainder of the day unless it gets excessive. The objective of the STMFC is to discuss steam era frt cars, not software or hardware used in the process. If a member has information regarding software/browsers/computers etc. that the member believes useful for the group, you may send it to me at brockm@... or  Jeff Aley at jeff.a.aley@....

 

Regardless, members must follow the full name rule as indicated above.

Ah, yes! I didn't realize people were trying to read them with browsers.
I ALWAYS download everything now because the browsers I use are no longer
supported by the latest generation of plug-ins. The only plug-in that still
works like a charm for me is Ad Block Plus :-)

Rob, Bill, Jim, and others interested,
I learned that the issue of the appearance and overly-thick grid lines can be dependent on the browser.

My first attempt using Firefox as my preferred browser resulted in overly-thick grid lines for the letter-size PDFs and nearly black & completely unreadable 11x17 tabloid PDFs. I later tried using my Safari browser, and the files appear as they should with thin grid lines.

I’ve corresponded with several members that have not experienced any problems viewing the files.

Regarding the data itself, I realize after expanding the scope of the information that there are some voids especially on the Canadian box cars. It’s also possible there are errors or omissions. 

I will appreciate your help to improve these files as they should be considered “works in progress.” Please contact me Off List at hawk0621@...

As new information becomes available, I’ll plan on updating the files periodically. In the meantime I’m currently working on PS-1 box car files and will also plan to add rosters for other types of freight cars.
Regards,
Ed Hawkins

Ed, I downloaded the "tabloid" format files - and all of them look fine
on my computer. I am using Windows XP (no longer supported), an old version
of Adobe Acrobat (no support), rickety old Firefox and Chrome browsers (neither
one supported), an ancient copy of Excel (no support), and a really old Eudora
(not supported). I guess sticking with what works, works! :-) :-)

Oh, and I recently replaced my entire DELL motherboard with a brand new one
for $49, so my PC is good for another 10 years. :-)

Jim,
I�ll need to figure out why the exact same PDFs that I sent to Rob had thin grid lines when I printed/saved them from Microsoft Excel spreadsheets appear much different when downloaded from the STMFC web site. The files I downloaded in 8 1/2  x 11 format have very thick grid lines, and the 11 x 17 tabloid files are nearly all black.

All of this makes no sense to me. There�s an obvious incompatibility somewhere that needs fixing. I created the Excel files on an iMac using OS 10.9 & Excel 2011 upgraded recently to version 14.7.1. The Adobe Acrobat software I�m using is 15.020.20042.

If anyone has ideas of how to generate these files so that anyone car download them and read them as intended with thin grid lines, please contact me Off List at hawk0621@....

Re: Flat car stake pockets...

The quantity of stake pockets is function on the quantity of crossbearers that support the floor.
======================

It's a wood frame flatcar... therefore the number of crossbearers is two, the needle beams.

Stake pockets have two functions, or did back in the era this car was built: keep freight from falling off the deck, or provide support for planks to make a temporary gondola. It's this later function that seems to dictate spacing, more than 3-1/2 or 4 feet and the span becomes too long for the common 2" planking. Likewise,  3-1/2 foot spacing ensures three stakes against the side of a pile of ties. much longer spacing risks having loads like ties shake around and protrude outside the clearance limit.

Some great info, thanks to Ed for compiling the information and to Rob for getting it posted.

 

And I had no trouble with downloading or viewing later. The files look fine. Using the latest Adobe Reader and Win10.

I downloaded all the files and the gridlines do not look overly thick to me. I think they are the same size on both letter and landscape format but the cell size is smaller on the landscape so the gridlines appear thicker.

I would recommend setting your browser to do pdf's outside the browser. It always seems to look better to me, and will give you the choice to download right away if you wish (this is what I did).

I also use Foxit Reader as opposed to Acrobat Reader, not sure if that made any difference.

It also seems like the gridlines stay the same thickness if you enlarge the document, at 400% they seem very fine relative to the text.

The link posted in the original email worked for me, but included an extra, unneeded, “/” at the end. 

Today, though, it doesn’t seem to be working, even from my bookmark:

Thanks!

Sometimes search engines or browsers are quirky. I suggest using another browser.

Then again I tried all three of the browsers I have for the Fallen Flags site and none of them worked.

Maybe tomorrow will be a better day for both of us Jim.

Chill out, folks, it opened from Brian’s link below right to this statement:



“My ISP has been upgrading the server that hosts the RR Fallen Flags Web site. This has resulted in down periods. Part of the upgrade is to add more hard drive space as the site was getting near the limit.”



It’s more good news than bad. BTW, how many of you have sent George a check of support lately? I sent him one at the end of ’16.

Hi all,


I went to the STMFC site to look at the tables Hawkins contributed, but I can't open them.  They turn black when I try to look at them.  What's wrong?

FYI: the very useful and excellent website http://www.steamerafreightcars.com is not formally associated with the Steam-Era Freight Cars (STMFC) Yahoo!Group.

 

That said, we at STMFC appreciate and applaud what is done at that website to further our knowledge (and therefore enjoyment) of steam-era freight cars.  But please bear in mind that if we do something horrible on the Yahoo!Group, it in no way represents the opinions of the management of that website.

 

Regards,

Thanks Jack, Couldn't locate any photos or plans. Looks good enough & logical to me. Yes there are some apparent metal straps on the doors & 2 small ones near each end.
