YS&T 110 is the type of car that Pennsylvania Tank Car was building in the early-mid Teens. The car behind it appear to be an early (pre-1917) GATC tank.

No construction photos … most I can say is I *think* each overlay is a single piece, scored.

Claus,

I'm pretty sure this ISN'T an AC&F type 11 car. The lack of end platforms and the shape of the tank support/bolsters speak against this. There were a number of knock-off high-walkway tank car designs from other manufacturers, but AFAIK this topic has not been well researched. High walkway do not always mean AC&F.

Maybe our tank car geeks can comment further.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

I have a couple of the Nickel Plate Products brass ones that I will redetail with Bowser parts. The floor casting fits nicely, and the doors are better as well.

Re: Santa GFe "Buy War Bonds" lettering, was N&W Boxcar 47302 (Round Roof)

So now a modeler's question -- how was it painted over? Did the repainted cars have a roughly rectangular irregular blob?

After the end of this list, I have seen cars with the Chief slogan with 'All Pullman' painted out, and later some S&T cars with 'and Travel' painted out.  Seems to me that it was done without masking.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the kind words! The interior planking on that car consists of styrene overlays; I *think* each overlay was a single piece of sheet, I want to say .010" thick, scored to represent the planks, and with Archer rivets added for the attachments to the side trusses. I may have construction photos at home.

Question for Al Brown on Southern war emergency hopper

 

Just ran across pictures of your Southern war emergency hopper from a few years ago. One picture shows a partial view of the interior. It looks like it was made up of individual boards. It looks great. How did you create that look?

Does anyone offer decals for a whole Santa Fe car that includes the "Buy War Bonds" slogan? while
anything but a Pennsy fan I have always appreciated things like that slogan on an appropriate car as
a way to help delineate the period of a model railroad more quickly than some other methods.

Why did the Santa Fe so quickly start removing the slogan? I doubt the Pennsy, or anyone else,
could have copyrighted such a slogan, especially during the war, so why was a decision made to
remove it?

Here is a link to a good article on the history of WWII War Bonds (aka "Series E" bonds):
https://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h1682.html
War Bond sales ended when the war ended.  The final deposit into the U.S. Treasury of war bond proceeds occurred January 3, 1946.  The Series E bonds were withdrawn in 1980, replaced by today's Series EE bonds.
Fun fact:  More than 85 million Americans — half the population — purchased bonds totaling $185.7 billion.  In today's dollars that amounts to $2.44 TRILLION!  Can you imagine that happening today, even from a population that is 232% greater that of 1946?!
