added more Red Caboose HO '37 AAR roofs

Andy Carlson
 

Hi-
I have 24 roofs which I was holding for a buyer who informed me that he needs less than originally ordered. That frees up 24 roofs which can be purchased for $2.50/each. Contact me off-list for purchase/shipping details at <midcentury@...>
Thanks,

Re: GM&O 4670

Benjamin Scanlon
 

Bill, I imagine this is one.

Have in my photo captions the 20000-20249 series were 1936 so I guess they 'anticipated' the 1937 AAR. 

Was the GM&O the only railroad with composite side knock-off versions of 1932 AAR, 1937 AAR and Modified 1937 AAR (War Emergency) boxcars?

Funaro & Camerlengo T-24 Buckeye Cushion Resin trucks

Alerted  here recently about these trucks—I think it was Bruce Smith—I ordered a pair from an eBay vender as I could not find them on F&C's website. I think they look pretty good. It is easy to tell that the pattern for these was 3D printed but to me the striations are not objectionable. They will go a long way to further uglyfying the N&W B-5 they are destined for once Yarmouth is able to introduce their kits.

Here, too! Believe it or not, but several hours ago I received 4 Emails from this group dating back to 17th, 19th and 20th January.
(The positive is that now I know the problem is not with my Email provider...)

Hi Peter,
 
Same here, curious.  Even more curious, I received at least two other long delayed RealSTMFC messages this morning, the earliest of which had a 01-16-19 date on it.  That’s almost two weeks!

No this is one of their cars that was more like the 1937 steel car. They also had DD versions.

Another request for unused parts

Turns out a lot of people need parts that are just lying in somebody else's inventory.

Now I'd like to request, if anybody has excess Branchline running boards for 40' cars, I'd like some.

Re: GM&O 4670

Benjamin Scanlon
 

Hi, is it though, Tim? 

6470 (sorry for wrong number in title of email) looks to have 4-4 ends, the 20188 has 4-5.

Also if you count the horizontal corrugations on the door, 6470 has 16 and 20188 has 18.

Further, look at where the diagonal brace ends on the car end, on the two cars.

I am wondering if 20188 may be a composite sided version of a 1937 AAR?

Here's another ex-GM&N box car of the same type.

Tim O'Connor




Ben,
This car is from GM&O 6400-6549 re-marked in 1940 from GM&N 6400-6549. Car #6740 in the photo was the last of the series listed in the ORER: listed solo in 4-1971 and gone by 1-1973 just after the GM&O was merged into the IC to form ICG. The original GM&N series was built 10-1934 AC&F, St Louis as Lot 1347, a modified  ARA 1932.design: Very late to be building standard gauge single-sheathed cars, but not the last for US service. That honor seems to go to SL-SF 152606-152752, 5 cars, built by SL-SF in 1939 or CB&Q 28000-28599, 600 cars. built  by CB&Q 1938-1939. Our friends up north built narrow gauge single sheathed cars for Newfoundland service as late as 1957.

Re: Question on D&H heralds

Ted Culotta
 

There were at least two versions of the Anthracite round emblem... one with serifs and one without. How do I know? I discovered it after I had completed, or so I thought, artwork for Pierre’s box cars! It was back to the drawing board, literally....

It was great to see everyone at Cocoa Beach this year. It is currently 15 degrees and snowing in Buffalo. As I mentioned during my clinic, I am sharing my handout here.

 

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rscctah7pt73urw/AADoQaw_kr2KdNSftQcKb6yba?dl=0

 

The shared link should take everyone to a dropbox folder with 2 files, a PDF of my Presentation without the Photos, and a Excel spreadsheet containing the data I have compiled over the past 10-12 years.  I didn’t edit the spreadsheet so there are some tabs that contain information on the rolling stock I own or want, don’t judge me, lol.   The Spreadsheet contains original data from Tim Gilbert and additional railroad data I have added from the 1957 and some 1950 ORER data.

 

I enjoyed giving the clinic and I received many compliments on it.  Therefore, I volunteered to give it at RPM East in March. Therefore, I have set the dropbox link to expire in a month, and then I will update the presentation for RPM East.  Any questions, you can ask on list or directly at prrk41361_AT_yahoo_DOT_com

 

If you weren’t at Cocoa the abstract of my clinic can be found here http://prototyperails.com/PDF/Abstracts_rev04_2019.pdf

I am seeking any available info on their 40' steel boxcars.    Car number 3008 exists in the yellow repaint; but I cannot read the data.    If anyone can offer more guidance, I would be grateful.
