Re: ATSF BX-11,12, and13 rebuild question

Nate:

I checked the Occhiello "Listing of cars by class" and it shows that 1500 or so of the Bx-11 were rebuilt in 1959/60, and the rebuilds became 16700-16899 and 19000-20550.  I remember a few of these cars,  They were fairly typical rebuilds with body fit over the narrower original frame, but the treatment of the ends was interesting.  Many, or all, got an 'outie' corrugation added above the otherwise 'innie' original Dreadnaught end.

Remind me off-line and I might be able to scan a couple.

I just looked at Google maps to see where Seymour WI is.
I found the old depot.
Guess what is parked beside the depot?

ATSF BX-11,12, and13 rebuild question

Nathan Obermeyer
 

Prototype Junction is looking to produce ATSF BX-11, BX-12, and BX-13 models to include rebuilds in the late 1950s. The rebuilds would possibly fit my modeling time frame of 1979 and I'd like to ask the ATSF experts what the road numbers were for these cars after the 1959 rebuild? Were they put in a new class of cars? I recently purchased the ATSF Color Guide book, but it didn't have photos of the 1959 rebuilds. Can someone provide the history of the rebuilds?

Thanks,

Nate

Re: [Non-DoD Source] Re: [RealSTMFC] PRR G25 "screw car"

Gatwood, Elden J SAD
 

Tim and Dave;

That is correct; they are the 70-ton version of the "Crown" truck, also found on other PRR 70-ton cars of that time, like the H21A and G22. They replaced many arch-bar-equipped as-built, with those trucks based on failures.

PRR had many variants of Crown truck, and rebuilt many to serve other purposes or upgrades: see attached. The cast-in information is very educational.

They look like the PRR 70-ton "Crown" truck, kissing cousin to the USRA 70-t Andrews. Consistent with the CAPY in the pic (and ORER).

The answer is 100-Ton cars that are not relevant for this list.

Re: Rutland flatcar with trailer load

I believe the photo was taken in Des Moines IA. Warfield Pratt & Howell was a grocery warehouse company in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Sioux City IA. The banner would indicated the car was loaded in Detroit, so it was a long way from Vermont. Demonstrating that cars, even flat cars, got a long way from home.

Interesting shot. I don't have the article, but back in the early days of prototype rolling stock modeling (John Nehrich or perhaps even Richard?) did an article on reworking an Athearn flat to more closely resemble the Rutland car. 

Paul Dolkos had a car based on this article (built for him by Tom Underwood) on his old B&M layout that I acquired a few years ago (see http://centralvermontrailway.blogspot.com/2012/04/home-for-orphans.html) when Paul lost the true faith and started modeling Baltimore....He felt a Rutland flat would have been out of place in Baltimore ... <g>

Hi List Members,
 
Apparently the May 1999 issue of RMC page 106 has an image of another of these RUTLAND flat cars, looks like RUT 2762, from the Dominic Raia collection. I don't know if there was also an article associated with the image, since I scanned only the image and got rid of the paper copy when I moved last.
 
Also, it looks like this same car, RUT 2762, may still possibly survive at the Danbury Railway Museum, see link below.

Marty and Friends,

The article was indeed by Richard Hendrickson, and is found in the August 1993 RAILMODEL JOURNAL. Richard said this was the only close prototype he could find for the Athearn 40' flatcar, due to it having 11 stake pockets on each side.

John Nehrich used the same flatcar to build flat cars and gondolas for the NEB&W (which is almost a prototype line in its own right). His gondolas were based on Rutland 2700-series flats rebuilt as gondolas 4500-4505. His article in the the January 1986 MODEL RAILROADER.

Restored Rutland flat car 2777 is at Steamtown.

Re: Caboose A vs. B End Orientation Question

Nelson Moyer
 

Thanks, Jack. The drawing of the underbody in the instructions has the brake cylinder pointing toward the long end, which is labeled Front (non-cupola) End on the drawing. For freight cars, the brake cylinder points toward the B end, which is what prompted the question. There are other oddities on the drawing such as the transverse mounting of the control valve and placement of the air reservoir on the same side as the brake cylinder with the control valve on the opposite side of the center sill, which is the reverse of most freight cars, though some cars have all three brake components on the same side of the center sill. There are the discrepancies between the drawing and the pilot model photos regarding the orientation of the air reservoir. These cars were built by the CB&Q in the Aurora car shop, so without prototype drawings or some clear underbody photos, I’m not sure how to build the brake system.

It appears the orientation of the brake cylinder was unchanged.  The cylinder is concealed by the battery boxes, but photos in the Burlington Waycars book of cars with the boxes and wagon wheels removed show the cylinder pointing to the short end.
