Re: CNJ Newark NJ Steam Era Warehouse Repurposed (Railway Age)

Bruce Smith
 

The interesting thing about the Albany warehouse is that the railroad enters on the second floor, via a bridge over Centre Street.  The CNJ warehouse diagram also says "2nd floor" but it appears that the building was built on a hillside.  


Streetview of the Albany facility shows it looking pretty run down and boarded up so it does look out of service, although the presence of dumpster on the far side may indicate some activity.

Hi Eric and List Members,
 
There is still such a warehouse standing in Albany, NY (no longer in service, I suspect). You get a great view of it from AMTRAKs Lake Shore Ltd as you roll by.

If we go with a Digitrax supply, the PS2012 is the only obvious option, but is overkill and a little "spendy" to power a single five-amp booster for this particular application.

    If you can live with eBay there are a couple of supplies.    #272725877035, 5 amp at around $8.

There are a few some with EU plugs and some with US plugs. 

There are also some 8 amp versions, #201654302900 for around $17.

These type of warehouses were common in many cities across the US. I've been reviewing photos and rail maps of Pittsburgh and found at least two similar terminal warehouse structures. One remains standing, although it is no longer rail served.

Here's a 1937 view of the facility with several freight cars. There were five tracks going into the structure and one exterior dock track. The Monongahela River is behind the photographer in this image. Click on the image to zoom in for a closer look.

Hi George and List Members,
 
This would certainly make a great centerpiece industry for a model railroad.
 
I imagine that prior to the diesel era, steam locomotives would have run right into the warehouse, correct? With the switchback track plan on the interior, they would have gone the whole length of the building. Must have been a smoky place at times!

There are numbers for single cars. All are as below.

For example; 130001 (single) and 130002 (4 pack).

These will all be finished this weekend. I’ve been leaning on my son for help as I simply have not had enough time myself to get them all cut, mated with the schematic, labeled, stamped, and mailed. I apologize. I know people are waiting. They did come out well.

Re: California Fires

Mikebrock
 

Guys,

It is tempting to Discuss on the STMFC natural situations in which losses occur. Certainly I could present various stories about hurricanes and our evacuations from them. Quite a few years ago this issue came to a head and we adopted the position that the group’s rules requiring the subject matter to be strictly about steam era freight cars would be followed. One of the problems was where do we draw the ‘line’. At the time, there was a member that insisted on sending weather reports to the group. So, we decided that a literal interpretation of the rules would be followed. One of the reasons why we have so many rules is so members can know what is expected of them regarding scope of messages.

 

Given that, if some situation occurs in which the best interests of the membership would be best served if information about a problem were passed to the membership, the group’s management [ Jeff Aley and myself ] will pass it on in a controlled environment.

 

So, until Jeff and myself receive information [ from any source ] regarding the CA fires that is so important that all members need to see it, the thread about the CA fires is now terminated.

 

I welcome any other views on this subject.

I built the Sunshine version w/the Dreadnaught ends, curiously this model is a candidate for the limited production NP Andrews trucks Brian at Tahoe tooled now available from the NPHS store. Probably will pass of this given at least three other NP cars to build.

The Rapido cars are from the 10000-13999 series with 7/8 Murphy ribbed ends. The last 500 cars in the series, 14000-14499, had 3/5 Dreadnaught ends. And NP changed the number of grab irons on the side of the last series to 7 from the 6 on the earlier series. I am very doubtful that the ends on the Rapido car will be easy to remove for a conversion to the dreadnaught series of boxcars.
