The title says the subject is a train watering station. Is this correct or did this item have some other use, such as wetting down loads in open top cars?

IM 1958cuft LO with type 3 hatches

Eric Mumper
 

Group,


In the latest new product release, Intermountain is showing 1958 cuft covered hoppers with the Murphy standing seam roof and type 3 hatches and locking bars for several railroads.  All that is shown on the site at this time is artwork and I have seen some emails implying IM has tooled the new type 3 hatches and locking bars.


There are several shows coming up in the next few weeks and I was hoping someone on the list would be going to one that Intermountain happens to be at as well and could report back on these cars.  I would like to see pictures of test shots or something to see how well they have done.  The standing seam roof has been done a long time ago and it is ok, but not great since injection molding is not capable of creating the rivets on the seam caps properly.  The roof Pierre did is much better.


Here is the link to the IM coming soon page:

Wow! Beautiful work. It puts my own Ambroid/Northeastern model of the same car to shame (and I though it was pretty good….).

Hello,

I have finished a Westerfield composite gondola, kit number 2501, and scratch build of the same in 2006.  I have posted the photos and writeup to my blog I started to share photos and writeup on rolling stock, etc. of modeling projects on my Minneapolis & Northland Railroad Company.    It is only my second post to the blog which I continue to improve.  If you would like to take a look please do at the following:

Re: Bob's Photos at the Big E

I have a post card with where Bob will be doing business during the West Springfield show. Unfortunately, it's at home and I'm at work.
If memory serves me it's the Regency motel across Memorial Boulevard from the Eastern States Exposition ground in West Springfield.
But I will double check when I get home and post the information here.

And if you make it into the show, please stop by the NERPM tables in the Mallary complex.

Thanks,

Re: CCB Branchline parts seller

Bill Welch
 

I mention this reluctantly but there are seventeen 4'x'4'x7' pallets of Branchline Freight car parts sitting in an Atlas warehouse begging to be rescued and sorted. I alerted a couple of hobby businessmen about this but they decided not to pursue it. A model RR hobby'est said he has a truck, driver and warehouse space in the mid-West he could volunteer to the cause.

I do not know Atlas contact person, price, or condition but passenger car specialist John Green, who bought their three pallets of Passenger Car parts, can probably furnish contact person info. John mentioned to me at Lisle 2017 that the parts are still sitting there.

Maybe there is an entrepreneur here willing to take on these parts and try to sell them. Good luck.

Thanks for posting the El Paso yard photo. Brings back memories. I may have even worked #60 around that time. Looks like one of El Paso’s dust storms may have been going on.

XM boxcars traveled everywhere. A model of this car is now available from Yarmouth with decals for either a BCR or Green paint scheme.

When I first saw this photo I focused on the eight-hatch Canadian Pacific refrigerator car. From what I understand the presence of such cars in Southern California was not all that unusual.

 

What I missed and sharp-eyed John Peckham saw was the West India Fruit boxcar just ahead of the two tank cars.

 

Would these boxcars have been frequent visitors to the West Coast?
