Paul,

Thanks for sharing your efforts. Very good efforts, I might add. Also, like what has been said, I too like the mixed doors. Great way to add variety.

I was just out in the garage putting more kits and stuff on the shelves and noticed that there was a Sunshine Bx-56 kit “hiding” in the cabinet. I will keep the photos of your progress for reference.

Cheers & Happy Modeling,

I did 10 of these as a kit.  I also offered the 55 ton offset hopper car.  These are currently sold out and I just sold out of the rounded end Clinchfield/C&O/NKP hoppers.  If you’re are on Facebook you can check out my Erwin Shops page.

Thanks, Ben.  Is there a way to download those pages?  I can’t get the pages to print either on my printer or as a pdf.

By the way, it's also in Train Shed #5. The basic model is quite good for its time, with reasonably-sized rivets.

Thanks for the data, Richard! I've been told many times that there are published plans for the Erie gondolas but none of the folks recalled where they were published.

I bought a pair of the Lindbergh gons several years ago. IIRC, they follow an Erie coal gondola prototype.

Erie RR used those gons to move coal.  There are pix of them on the Central Avenue pier on Lake Erie in Dunkirk NY where the Erie delivered coal from the Toby Mines near Brockway PA to lake boats.

Thanks Eric.  This is 1.5 scale.  I working on some boxcars now that I hope to incorporate detailed resin cast ends and doors.

Re: Palace Poultry Car Color

The Catenary Video “Western Pacific” includes a short section of film taken on the streets of Oakland, California and the Palace Poultry Car is a very dark color, I assume black with the cage material a much lighter color.

Been there.  Done that.

Only thing for sure I could confirm from my hour with that car is that the underframe and trucks were once painted black with a white / light lettering, and the interior was once white with a dark gray / black lettering.  The car sides have a light powdery “chalky" residue. But I was unable to locate any "chips" of paint on the ends or sides.  Perhaps they have already collected such in the years since they got her in 1986, or can find such by removal of parts.

I have the builders photos for PPKX 5065. I have played around with putting green on the dark areas and then converting it back to black and white. I am thinking the dark color could be green.
