Bill,

Not a D&H maven but there was an article in November 1987 RMC on the prototype with a plan by Chuck Yungkurth showing all three ends, and the with an underframe plan. The December issue the same year had a how to model the cars article.

Inspired by an item on the Speedwitch Blog (http://prototopics.blogspot.com/2019/02/wordy-wednesday-delaware-hudson-36-foot.html) I retrieved my F&C kit #3406 and have pretty much finished building and detailing the superstructure. I am stuck however doing the underframe as I am not confident how to proceed. There are some parts that I think are meant to be Crossbearers but the instruction as usual are not helpful.

I am curious if there are any D&H mavens here that may have information on the prototype. In his blog post Ted Culotta said he thought there may have been a RMC article by John Nehrich. Can anyone verify this? I plan to post model photos soon.

The Nehrich construction article, featuring an extensive kitbash of the MDC 36 ft DS boxcar, appeared in the December 1987 issue of RMC.  He followed drawings by Chuck Yungkurth published in the November 1987 issue of RMC.

Group,

I have for sale about 100 RTR freight cars from the steam and transition era. Most are Red Caboose, Intermountain, Proto, Athearn, & other brands like this. There are also some brass examples, resin kits, and wood passengers cars in the mix. Lastly, there are a few locomotives included in this sale. Most of it is surplus to my collection which centers around western and midwestern roads such as ATSF, SP, and D&RGW.

Most models include Kadee couplers and metal wheels, unless otherwise mentioned. Some have been weathered while others are new in box. Many of these are missing their original boxes but prices are reasonable and large volume discounts are offered. Buyer pays shipping and PayPal is preferred. Please PM me for a full list in PDF for as it's far too long to post here. Thanks you all, and enjoy your day!

Friends,

Many years ago I compiled a list of HO freight car and caboose models suitable for the Western Pacific, Sacramento Northern and Tidewater Southern up to 1958. I long ago lost that list, but member R.J. Dial had a copy, and made many comments, corrections and additions. It is now revised and updated with decal suggestions.

Additional material is welcome, but I reserve the right decide what is appropriate.


The list is attached for your enlightenment and approval. I believe as an attachment it will be automatically saved to our group's files section. If not, I will eventually post a copy there with any changes the group wants.
Yours Aye,

Built one if these in 1960 or 1961 while in high school. Still have it (packed away after downsizing).  Have to dig it out when we get back  from FL.

That was the first Ambroid Kit I ever built. I sold it a few years ago as it did not match my layout or era.

That is because they were narrow-gauge cars used on the narrow gauge parts of the Denver & Rio Grande Western in Colorado. Two of them still exist; what was once 301 is on the Cumbres & Toltec; the former 302 is at the Colorado Railroad Museum.

Good evening:

I have a number of 1/4” drawings in my collection for:

Western Union Telegraph Co., Outfit Car No. 301 (32’)
Western Union Telegraph Co., Outfit Car No. 302 (32’)
Western Union Telegraph Co., Outfit Car No. 303 (32’)

Interesting they were so much shorter than the one being discussed.

Indeed. The Soo, the Chicago & Northwestern, the Georgia, the Nickel Plate, and the Frisco all had ex-Western Union cars among their nonrevenue equipment. The Nickel Plate seems to have had the most.

Interestingly, the Soo Line had one of these cars on their work equipment roster after WWII. Turns out the Chicago -Twin Cities telegraph line was owned by Western Union and the Soo rented a couple wires for company business. This made WU responcibilityfor the line maintenance and gang was assigned. When the Soo later bought the pole line, the assigned maintenance equipment was part of the transaction. I wouldn't doubt other roads had similar transactions.

Probably something none of us would model, though.
That does deep-end[sic] in part on the scale. I know some obsessive sorts working in larger outdoor scales who might.
