This is a link to forty-five photos of the Wabash yards from the files of the Decatur Herald-Review:

Mostly long shots. Some photos are dated and some show freight cars with fair detail.

Beg pardon, Chaps, but the list owner has already requested that any discussion not pertaining to this group's stated purpose, (i.e. steam era freight cars), stop immediately.  I fully support that view; I subscribed to this group to learn about North American freight cars, not read banal waffle by a bunch of people whom I don't know.  Before anyone says 'That's what the delete button is for', I will point out that it still uses up time to wade through these irrelevant messages (over 25 messages!) that shouldn't be there in the first place according to the rules of this group, and at the same time refer you to Mike's post on May 11 asking you to desist.

Cheers
Paul

“3D modeling for computer games, specifically train simulators.”  That usually ends the discussion.  If it doesn’t I’ll add “Mostly architectural models but sometimes freight cars” and “I also design and build entire routes for the simulator, such as Oakland to Sacramento and  downtown Chicago”.

 

I don’t usually get another question after that.

Guys, 
when someone asks you what is your hobby, what do you answer ? Or how do you briefly describe your hobby to a "layman" ?

Anheuser Busch came to that conclusion, their name did not appear on any cars in the immediate post-prohibition period, eventually even changing their beer bottle green color on the St' Louis Refrigerator line cars. But it seems like everyone else, except maybe Coors, big and small, tried to plaster their names on as many cars as possible during the 1934-1937 period, when the ICC rules went into effect. Miller even put their logo on some cars in the 60s when the interpretation was relaxed.

Beer didn't need icing, so beer cars were usually ARA
class RB, Refrigerator, Bunkerless. Eventually the brewers
came to the realization that putting their logo on the car
was akin to posting a COME STEAL ME sign.

The cars were insulated (by the standard of the time) and ice blocks were inside the car.
