I have tried. a number of times to sign into the Real STMFC site.  Each time a message comes up stating that an email would be sent for verification.   Nothing ever shows up.  I still receive all of the posts.

Help please:

Is there a way to change where the subscription email goes?  I can go to my subscriptions and locate where the email from the group goes, but it is grayed out, meaning it does not offer edit options.  Any help will be appreciated.

2018 NERPM approaches -- please make hotel reservations soon!

Hello all:

We’re a little over a month away from the 2018 NERPM in Enfield, Conn.
and we hope you’re planning to join us.

We have posted a tentative clinic list on our website. Here’s the
link: http://nerpm.org/uploads/7/0/2/0/70207725/2018_tentative_clinic_list.pdf

If you haven’t registered for the meet, we urge you to do so. You can
save yourself $5 by preregistering. You can register online on our web
page, www.nerpm.org, or by mail. The registration form can be
downloaded from our site.

If you need lodging, you only have a few days to get a room at our
special rate of $104 a night, which includes breakfast, at the meet
hotel. (Your staying at the meet hotel helps us tremendously!) The
hotel releases our block of rooms a month before the meet. Our group
code is RPM. A link to the hotel site is on our site. If you have any
problems, please call the hotel front desk at 860-741-2211.

We have lots of great vendors coming to the meet. We’ll also have the
white elephant room again where you can sell surplus items. There are
limits so please consult our ground rules, which are on our web page.

We have lots of room in the model display room so please bring and
show your work. Remember, complete and in-progress models are welcome.
The models are really the heart of the meet.

Nearly four dozen clinics are scheduled, including two hands-on
clinics. We're very lucky to have so many presenters who are willing
to share their knowledge and skills. The clinic list will be revised
as we get closer to the meet.

On Sunday, we have about 10 layout open houses scheduled. Those that
will be open include Neil Schofield's CP Rail's Lyndonville & Newport
Subdivisions in Vermont, which was featured in the 2018 Model Railroad
Planning.

Any questions, please contact me at neprotomeet@gmail.com

Thanks,

Dave Owens
Meet coordinator


Re: Boxcar Scars

James E Kubanick
 

I agree with John's assessment. Welding creates a surface that is quite difficult to paint properly. The residual weld surface is  porous and brittle compared to the adjacent sheet metal surface in addition to having experienced a different heat history. This creates a surface that is very susceptible to corrosion if not properly primed with a corrosion resistant primer that also has the ability to penetrate these voids in the weld metal. A high quality topcoat would also assist, here. I doubt that many railroad shops have the ability to apply and stock these sophisticated coatings. Cost and quantity are big factors, here. Tank car shops may be an exception, however

This is often seen on cars built with welded assemblies - Most notably in the case of the MILW  horizontal rib cars after they have been in service for some time..

A question to ask when they get here.  If I get my order I may be selling or trading one or two of 130004.  At $50 a car I'm hoping they are gold plated:-D!

Pardon the bandwidth

 

Is anyone out there selling singles of the Rapido 4-pack NP boxcars?

 

I’d like 2 different numbers of the 130006/130007 (NP 36” Monad 1945-1950) and 130009/130010 (NP “Main Street” 1951-56)

 

 

Thanks!

    I am using Testors "clear parts cement" and have a couple of bottles of "Formula 560 canopy glue".  I really like the Testors bottle and wish I could refill it with the 560.  Has anyone done this?

If my aging memory serves me well, Dick usually has a recent model at the Collinsville, IL RPM. They really do look like the real thing in miniature.

Re: GATC Type 17 (I think)

Tim O'Connor
 


And, as I have been instructed by my tank car tutor (Jerry Stewart) 1917 GATC
tank cars came in several variations, but all of them shared a new mandatory
construction feature - those DOUBLE ROWS of rivets. Prior to that time only a
single row was required.

A lovely shot I thought y'all might enjoy, even though the car's
repaint date is a little too modern.

Yes, and an early one: "Built by GATC 7-17".

Location and regularity make weld repairs the most obvious and mist likely causes.
