Hauling Sand before Coverd Hoppers Became Popular

reporterllc
 

What kind of car was used? I am referring to bulk sand from a pit that ships out sand and gravel. Perhaps this sand would not be that specialized. Wouldn't it need to be protected from the weather? On a side note, In the early 1970s (long after covered hoppers became popular) I remember a tower operator referring to an ancient gondola in a consist loaded with sand. I did not see it and wondered if it was covered.

Re: Train Station Products

I made an order with Tom Scheid of NKP Car a few months ago, which included some Train Station Products passenger car core kits.  I asked about  an out-of-stock TSP product, and for contact information so I could get in touch with TSP directly, but Tom said that the owner at TSP "doesn't like to be contacted by customers."  As far as I know, there is no way to order directly from TSP.  I'd suggest getting in touch with a company that supplies TSP products to help you out.  From what I could tell, TSP is still manufacturing product.

Yeah, I saw that but that's just a little bit of what they made.  I guess I was wondering if they had a website to order direct from.

Hi all,
I bought a bilge fan for less than $20 via Walmart’s website. It’s for exhausting fuel fumes from boats, so very safe. Booth made from 1/2” foam core tacked together with hot glue. Light, portable, and cheap to replace.

Don's account is almost certain not hacked, but "spoofed". That is where someone pretends to be you. They do not need access to your account. The mail, incoming to the server from the spoofer, appears to be coming from Don. Thus the server says "Aha! An email from a member! I can send that one on." and so it does. Don's account is probably completely safe, although a change of passwords would be in order. This view is reinforced by a spate of this happening on our lists... probably because someone was dumb enough to reply. About the only way to really combat this is to put a list on moderated status for a while.

Anyone tried the rivet decals from UMM? I ordered a couple while I was getting other stuff from them as they are less expensive than Archer rivets but have yet to play with them...

Tony;

 

I have a Sunshine ATSF gon that had separate “metal” doors for weight, that I “damaged” to see what operators would do with it.  One door was hanging by a chain so there was an unsealed opening in the floor.

 

It did not always dissuade operators from loading it anyway!

Re: Photo: Embalmed Whale Carrier

True enough.  Comedian Herb Shriner, whose humor was based upon his small-town upbringing, said,
"We haven't had so much excitement around here since that feller come through town with a dead whale on a flat car."

Shrine also said, "We had a newspaper in my town, but nobody read it; we knew what everybody was doing.
Well, we bought the paper occasionally, to see if they had been caught at it."

No, you may not ask us a favor.

 

Obviously Bob’s account has been hacked; I saw the same msg from him on the PassengerCarList.  Bob’s account is being Moderated, so we shouldn’t see any more messages like this from his account.

My interpretation was that boxcars were being used to house refugees from the flood.

Placard holders-tack boards

As it happens, I just scanned several drawings for tack boards and such - and their placement on the car is well defined - in the as-built configuration.  Just as with the various locations for stencils (beyond the requisite), railroads specified the board and location.

I agree. I seem to recall the IC was called upon to provide boxcars for temporary housing for several of the bad floods in the early part of the twentieth century.
