Hi John and List Members,
 
Is the locomotive crane likely to be self-propelled? That is to ask, can it move down the track under its own power?

withthe NMRA convention. This is the only place that I have encountered
them.I do not have an e-mail or other contact information. They hae an
extensive line of etched products. Thie product that Ihaveis #1001403 SOLID
BRASS MICRO CHAIN - N Scale. This is smaller than the smallest A-line or
any other chain that I have.
I cannot even to begin to count the links (problem with the higher math).

Hope whoever was looking will be able to find this.

Re: Reproducing decals

John Hagen <sprinthag@...>
 

Craig,

I can reproduce them without the artwork. BUT they MUST be out of production by the original printer or anyone else.

If you want I can draw all new, scalable vector artwork using one of the sets as a pattern.

Or you can just send me a high resolution (600 dpi minimum) scan of a set. You must include some dimensions so I could use to make certain the scans scale to be correct.

As long as these would be marketable by me there would be no fee for the artwork, just the actual printing.

Please contact me off line if interested.

Re: reverse decaling

vapeurchapelon
 

All,

I am no painter and don't have any knowledge of decals and their application, but I am doing some brass modeling and therefore I am watching the "Monday Morning Express" from brasstrains.com. FWIW, today they announced that one of the topics to be discussed and shown by known painter Boyd Reyes next week will be the "reverse decaling". Perhaps somebody here would like to watch it.

Many greetings

Johannes

Santa Fe waybills

John Barry
 

Tony Thompson and I are trying to figure out if the Santa Fe actually used different waybill forms for each of it's operating companies as implied in the Santa Fe form index.  In the three pre-1960 versions of the Form 1091, List of Blanks that I have access to, they all list the waybill forms as what the Santa Fe called Regular Forms, forms that had the different corporate entity printed at the top for legal or other reasons.  This infers that shipments originating from Missouri would use an ATSF form with the railway accounting code 22 while a shipment originating in California on the Coast Lines would be on a form headed with that company identity and accounting code 30.  Similarly, origins from Texas should be on either a P&SF or GCSF headed form.  So much for theory, the only non-livestock Santa Fe waybill that I’ve seen originated in Missouri in 1959 and was on the proper ATSF form with code 22.  Which indicates that the Santa Fe really did use at least one of the four Regular waybill forms.  But what about the others?  Tony, Eric Hiser and I are actively seeking examples of Santa Fe waybills, especially from the Coast Lines or Texas points.  I’ve written a blog post about what I’ve learned in the National Archives from a closely related form, the Bill of Lading.  You can read that post and see some examples of WWII era forms from the SP, WP and Santa Fe Coast Lines at:



 
For anyone who would like to contact me off list, NorthBayLines at att dot net will reach me.
 
Thank you in advance for looking.  I hope that some of you have examples to share.

      I believe the latter. This was in fact common with tank cars, and later very much so with covered hoppers: make the car fit the density of the load.

Re: ICC 105 tanks and BLI 6k tank

Garth,

I don't know, but their ORER entries do list the 6k cars as 100,000 pound capacity.

Unfortunately of the two Ethyl car photos in Ed's ACF book, pg 132 is of a 3k car, and pg 134 is a 6k car (EBAX 842), but it is one of Ethyl's small batch of Chlorine cars, not tetra-ethyl (which is why it lacks the Ethyl emblem on it.) But it was also rated at 100,000 pound capacity - so perhaps that photo could help?

I am not a truck expert anyway, so I would not be able to interpret such a photograph.

Ed Hawkins posted that most of the BLI cars are based on as-built documents (and I assume photos.) Perhaps someone has access to a picture of the Ethyl car prototype, or documents that specify the truck?

Dave,

Most of Ethyl cars were carrying tetra-ethyl, a VERY heavy commodity, which is probably why 6K tanks were used. I saw a lot of these still running on the WP in the 1970s, and most dated back into our period. I think they were all insulated.

Question, due to the heavy weight of this chemical, did these cars have heavier trucks and maybe other beefed up construction, or was the small gallonage enough compensate for the load.

Yours Aye,
