Re: nice scene showing a bulk oil dealership

Claus,

What a great image!  It almost makes me want to model 1924... 

It looks like a GATC type 17 radial course tank car. And those tank trucks!

Hi List Members,
 
There is a nice scene showing a bulk oil dealership in 1924. Very model-genic.
 
 
 
Oh yes, there is also a steam era freight car for us to enjoy as well – tank car PARX 848

"In the image below, I can see two boxcars. I’m trying to make out the owning road for the one closest to the camers, but I’m not successful so far. Perhaps others on the list will look at this and will know right away...

I see 5-5-5 ends, possibly Murphy style, or perhaps inverse Murphy (is that a term?). It also looks to have two doors on the side I that can see, making it an automobile boxcar. Does that ring a bell for anyone?

MP is stenciled on the end of the car and I can see a bit of Missouri Pacific on the car side.

some interest in boiler loads on flat cars

Claus Schlund &#92;(HGM&#92;)
 

Hi List Members,
 
There was some interest in boiler loads on flat cars recently. The image linked below shows more of this...
 
 
If you click on the “Download” button, an image with very nice level of detail can be seen.
 
I especially love that the load is secured by what looks to me like mostly twisted wire! I could certainly think of some ways to model this!

Re: Covid 9 Builds

Nice variety of cars, Fenton. I’m glad to see somebody else is building passenger cars. I posted a question on the passenger car group this morning asking about hand brakes on CB&Q heavyweight baggage, RPO, and dining cars. I only have photos of one end of all the cars I’m building and no scale drawings, so I don’t know if hand brakes were on one or both ends, and if only one end, which end?  The hand brakes in photos I have are the old long curved handle ratchet, pawl, and chain type. Perhaps you or someone in this group has an answer.

Milwaukee Road steel gondola 93100

Lester Breuer
 

I decided it was time to build an “ oldie,” Milwaukee Road all steel gondola 93100.  If you are interested in the build of MILW gondola 93100 including changes and addition of parts not in the kit.  Photos and writeup of the build process including primer, paint and weathering are now available on my blog I have to share photos and writeup of modeling projects on my Minneapolis & Northland Railroad Company.   If you would like to take a look please do at the following link:

No, I still have me drill press but it is a Cameron drill press and can go below #80 drill bits but normally #80 is fine.

You have one of my groups, the Railway Bull Shippers Group.

 

You might also enjoy the Railroad Citrus Industry Modeling Group at:

 

https://groups.io/g/RailroadCitrusIndustryModelingGroup

 

This is a group for modelers, railfans and historians.

 

The group collects and shares information about the operations of the Santa Fe, Pacific Electric, Pacific Fruit Express as they relate to Southern California's citrus industry. The group also collects and shares information about packing and shipping activities and citrus farming with a concentration on the ice bunker refrigerator car era.

I might be missing something obvious, but I was wondering to myself yesterday how paper seals were attached to steel sheathed cars and steel doors.
