LNE X-29 boxcars, 8000 series, Anyone have info on these cars?  I think they were the 8000 series.  I believe they were boxcar red in the late 1940's and early 1950's.  Can anyone tell me a good paint match for them.  I like SCII or Tru Color.  All help is appreciated.

Likely one of the remnants of class XMp, series 11550-13549 built in
1910 and 1913 by AC&F. Typical double-sheathed box cars with fishbelly
center sills and two horizontal pressed steel bands wrapped around the
ends. Many were rebuilt with steel doors and roofs in the 1920s. F&C
8194 and 8195 model these; here's a built-up version on Ebay:

Reading double sheathed boxcar 121XX

Richard Townsend
 

I was looking at a photo of a C&S 2-8-0 switching in the Denver yards in about 1950. It was coupled to a Reading double-sheathed boxcar with a number starting with 121 with what I think are the last two digits blocked by a utility pole. Can anyone tell me anything about these cars (beyond what I can find in the ORER)?

 At the 2018 RPM meet at Lysle there was a very excellent presentation  on weathering.  I don’t recall who the presenter was.  When I returned home I printed the presentation.  This was a 38 page document covering box cars, gondolas hopper and tank cars.
    When I went to review it recently I discovered that in all my efficiency (or th usual lack thereof) I was missing pages 1 - 6 and page 18.  I would greatly appreciate if anyone could privide these pages ofr provide a link to the presentation.

Thank you for any help.

Re: Brass dealer

Bruce Smith
 

David,

The list has a very good search engine. Puzzled as to why you hadn't just used that, yesterday, I searched based on your comments and got nothing. Today, I added searches for "Vern", "Intermountain AND brass" and few other permutations, and got... nothing. I think that you might be thinking of a conversation that occurred on another list, because, at least based on the things you remember, it did not happen here. 

Regards,
Bruce Smith

Re: Kingan packing

San Francisco had a Kingan house served by the State Belt north of the Ferry Building on Embarcadaro between Jackson and Pacific Streets.  (Sourced from the SP 1948 and 1928 SF Industry Maps.)

Gives me a reason to run Kingan cars on the car float out of Richmond.

Brian,

Reviewing the whole thread, I can see that 1957 is your "error".   :-)

These would be appropriate if you didn't model that error, and instead chose an earlier time period.  lol.

I can tell you that in 1934, my conductor log database for the Southern's Winston-Salem division shows Kingan reefers being routed (with meat) to Mt. Airy, NC on a regular basis.  They were routed back to Richmond, VA .  Other reefers for other companies went elsewhere empty, like Morrell seemed to be routed empty to East St. Louis or St. Louis. And Schluderberg-Kurdle (now Esskay S-K) were routed to Baltimore via Potomac Yard.  That makes me think Richmond might be either a transfer point or it had a Kingan branch house.
