Bob makes many of the two and even some one-day regional shows.  In my experience, Kirkland and Berea (but not always both) around Cleveland and two shows a year at the Columbus, Ohio State Fairgrounds.  Marlboro, Mass. near Boston.  For smaller regional shows he brings the RR material germane to that area.  He really gets around once doing something like 40 shows a year in past times.  Not so much now but certainly the major shows in the east and sometimes farther.  He is a huge asset to our historical and modeling efforts!

Thanks all of you for your info. He sure gets around! Looks like Amherst is where he brings the most. Wonder if he is anywhere besides all of these?

Bob's Photos was at the Chicagoland RPM last year. I bought the Tichy floor and queen posts for the FGE project build from him. He was in different location off of the main hallway across from the restaurant.

I've also seen Bob at the October and February GSMTS shows in Timonium, MD. The show website says he'll also be at the April show.

He brings most everything he has to the Amherst show. I don't think he brings as much to some of the other shows.

Re: Throwback Thursday: Ambroid Western Union Material Car

I built this model when it came out.  I was 11.  I was very annoyed, though, because my dad and I went to the hobby shop to get the specified paint color (Pullman Green?) and apparently for a short time Floquil combined Pullman Greet and Coach Green in to a paint that was neither.  Consequently, my car appears to have been a repaint around the lettering on the pre-lettered sides.  Every once in a while I think I should get a matching paint and fix that . . . 60 years later . . .

I saw Bob at Amherst this year and would like to find out what other shows he attends. I especially like to see him at Amherst because he has a hotel suite and brings boxes of unsorted photos. I never know what I'll find in those boxes and would really like to know if does the same thing at any of the other shows he attends during the year.
Thanks for any help the group can provide.

Re: FOR SALE: 100 Mostly RTR Freight Cars & Locomotives

Well, guys, as already stated I sent my resquest for a list twenty minutes ago by using the "reply to sender" key at the bottom of the page.
Since the list has already arrived from Matthew that seems to work. Being woefully incompetent when it comes to computers all I can tell 
you is that I'm using an old Lenovo using Google and Yahoo Mail with Windows 7 that I've hated for a year and wish I still had XP.  My 
favorite saying about Microsoft is "Never have so few made so much money by offering so little of value". As one of my MIT Model RR 
Club cohorts exclaimed recently, if the government were smart they would change the copyright laws on computer software so that the 
copyright expired the day the originator of the software stopped providing service for it. Then we would not be forced to by these lousy 
upgrades each of which in my opinion is worse the the crap it replaced. It would also help if the government completely phased out
Microsoft and went to Linus software or something else in the publkic domain. 

Sorry for the soapbox,  Don Valentine

I caught that Dave and PM'd Mathew using the "reply to sender" key at the bottom of the message.
The same method was uded to repsong to another list member earlier this week and it seemed to
work. Thus I wonder what the problem is for others who cannot seem to do the same thing?

Glad to learn you made it back from Colorado without getting cuaght in one of there avalanches this year.

My best, Don Valentine


C&IM 1931 Built USRA style gondola

gary laakso
 

The August 1999 issue of Mainline Modeler on page 47 has a picture of this gondola that while built in 1931 was modified in July, 1940 to carry 10 Youngstown containers, while retaining its KC brake.  There were only 3 such modified cars: 15000-15003.  The article does not mention if the 1931 delivered cars had wood sides and that the 1940 modifications included the removal of the wood sides and their replacement with a partial steel siding that allowed each Youngstown container to have tack boards that could be viewed from the sides of the car.  The photo was attributed to C.T. Bossler.

I have tried, unsuccessfully to upload the attached file of items that would seem to be surplus to my needs, and so I am attaching the file here, in hopes that it will be stored and be able to be viewed.
 
Please contact me OFF LIST if you are interested in any of these items, first come, first serve.  shile (at) mindspring (dot) com.
 
Thanks for looking.  I hope that this is an acceptable method of doing this.

This photo is from the Erie Lackawanna E-Mail List Photo Archive:

I collect photos of freight cars with chalk markings to add to a clinic I do on typical and unusual railroad employee chalk markings. I found this one interesting because the message (after the first two words) reads, "Do not let car leave yard on account of man got hurt." Obviously, this car is central to an on-the-job injury investigation.

I'll let the gondola experts comment on the car itself.

Garth, P2K 6501-6600 has wood floor, which is OK. Forgot to mention OK.
To my knowledge Sunshine never did the 19001-19050 car.

I'm studying the techniques to construct a master of the WP 15001-Pullman car, so it can be reproduced in resin.
Would need a plaster version of that car with roof hatches and 'Plaster car, return to Gerlach, NV' on the door under the shield.
Some had 'Collapsible Bulkheads' (+lettering) too.
regards,
Fred Jansz

Second guess is correct. The camp cars were converted wooden Pullmans which already had diaphragms, so the tool and material cars had them, but only at  one end because that was their position in the outfit plan...at the ends of the train.

I love this Ambroid car (one of my layout as we speak), but have always wondered about the passenger diaphragm on one end.  Were these cars designed/equipped for occasional operation on passenger trains, or was the diaphragm there to provide protected entrance and egress if the car was coupled  -parked or underway-  to a related bunk/dormitory/WU official car?

I use Outlook. At the top of each email I receive on this list it says,

<main@RealSTMFC.groups.io; on behalf of; and gives the name and email address of the sender>

I captured the address for Matt from that line, emailed him privately, selected an item I wanted to purchase, bought it and paid for it.  Just look for that line in the email you receive.

Mike - the problem with this approach is that unless Matthew sets his profile to make his email address visible to members of the group, it does not appear possible to respond directly to him.  I don't know if it is group IO or firefox, but clicking on "reply to sender" (or even "reply to group") gives a menu that steers you to email applications that you might not use.


Re: off list email replies

John Hagen <sprinthag@...>
 

I also use Outlook. But the links to various ways pf reply are still at the bottom of all messages and do work quite well.

Two things I am aware of.

It is possible to reply off list if you search you email program.

Then, the idea of replying off list to stop countless postings about a sale notice. Something that has been happening here to discuss how to reply off list.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] off list email replies

 

I use MS Outlook on my computer. When I want to reply to an author post offline, I first copy their email address from the original message. I hit Reply, delete the group email address, and paste in the author’s address. I might need to edit the address for an AOL or Yahoo account, as Groups.io adds extra characters for some reason. I’ll also add OFF LIST at the beginning of the Subject line and before the RE: and original subject.

 

The Reply to Sender function sets up a reply to the discussion list. Hitting Reply first and then finding the author’s address can be problematic as that original email address is sometimes removed on the reply. That’s why I find the author’s address and copy it first before hitting reply.

 

Each program is different and the on-line Groups.io experience may also be different. A user must be aware of the functions when initiating a private reply. A check of the To email address is also recommended.

 

These are just some of the steps I use to communicate off list in order to share details on steam era freight cars.

I suspect this was meant to be a private message cause it looks like State secrets.

 

Let’s be careful out there folks and leave the product announcements to the professionals.
