Bob;
You are certainly one of the most prolific posters on this on and my other groups! That's NOT a complaint, it is praise! 

While many of your posts, or rather, the subjects of your post are of little interest to me personally, I am but one person in this and those groups. So even though I don't view each and every link, I DO appreciate you taking the time to share them with us! You are very generous doing so.

I hope that you continue to share your discoveries with us, I'm very grateful, here, and on our other groups! Again, Thank you very much!
 
Take Care,

Bill,

I may be able to help you, but I will have to dig some, and I probably won't get to that until Monday.

What a great photo of a wood underframe. Note how dainty the body bolster is (at least it's metal, might be wrought iron) and how the draft gear is fitted between DRAFT SILLS that are bolted to the underside of the center sills. Tiny little coupler with no draft key; the coupler shank was riveted to the yoke in those days, With a piece of flat bar stock bolted to the wood sills for a carry iron.

Diesel fuel car according to the description. That's consistent with the hose and nozzle hanging on the side.
Speculation, but I suspect that's a caboose underframe.

The sand car does appear to be built on a tender frame.

Vicksburg, Shreveport & Pacific -in 1926, it was leased to the Yazoo and Mississippi Valley Railroad, and merged into the Illinois Central Railroad in 1959.

Please note that it is a ventilator car.

Hi List Members,

Image of VS&P 26022 36ft trussrod vent box in 1895, looks to be a Ohio Falls Car Mfg Co builders photo. Right off the bat I don't know what those reporting marks stand for... any thoughts?


Enjoy!

Re: Photo: B&O Boxcar In MOW Service

Bob,

The car number on the "A" end appears to be 277296. I believe that car would be classed as a M-26(D), according to a table in the B&O Modeler No 47, p. 49 (Summer 2018). That issue is still available online.

Ken Montero.

This one certainly is a veteran of the rails. The car number is too faint for me to see on my monitor.

Are those patch plates along the bottom of the car?

Clearly a limestone half column, or pilaster. Indiana limestone was the standard for many public buildings.

There's a rare one: auto-box version of the Americanized Fowler/Dominion car. CI&W 19201-19300 built by Haskell & Barker in 1916, became B&O M31a 190300-190397.

Hi David,
 
I was wondering that also - not many railroads used peaked ends this early, so this is a bit unusual, not just for the NYC system, but for the date overall.
 
I can recall that C&O had quad hoppers built with peaked ends in 1929, and I think N&W was doing peaked ends on conventional coal gons and on hoppers by that date. That's all I can think of right off.

Huh, didn't know there were ever any peaked-end gondolas anywhere in the
NYC system.

Hi List Members,
 
Image of CTH&SE 370758 hopper in 1933. This is the Chicago Terre Haute & Southeastern - we don't normally think of MILW as operating east of Chicago (at least I don't) but it was a MILW owned subsidiary. I saw a wreck photo once of a CTH&SE twin hopper on the RUTLAND - so clearly they got around, at least occasionally!?!
