Re: Experimentation on modeling inside details of Youngstown doors

Those look great Andy. I am sure they would attract the guys who like to leave a door open with a partial load inside. I know at train shows (when we have them again!) it would be an attention getter.

Hello-

With my intent years ago to model thin 2-sided Youngstown Steel Doors in HO I gave it a try last week.

This is my first casting with this thin molded YSD. This photo is of the back side of an HO Youngstown pre-war 5/6/5-T door, usually used on 10'6" IH modified '37 AAR box cars. I have been able to keep it close to scale thickness. Yes, the panels are thin; about 0.006".

I will try to cast in Urethane resin, but for this cast I used J. B. Weld original epoxy.  Next door will be an overnight 5/5/5 interim improved Youngstown door used solely for the SP.

I already have a car side which I have scribbed interior sheathing and also the smooth vertical door frame on each side of the door opening. The other side will not need this scribbing but will have the door glued in the open position. With the peek-through view the scribbed side will have the inside detailed door in the closed position, allowing this through-the-car-side interior view. I am hoping further research shows that the GN stenciled the car numbers on the top of the doors.

Hi Claus,

The photos of the NYC&HR boxcars were taken at the 1876 Centennial Exhibition.

All the best,

Aha.  I had assumed it was a trade name of another manufacturer.  Here it is --  http://rr-fallenflags.org/el/frt/erie82121b.jpg

Ron, the "Dual Control" truck is the National B-1.  Attached is a page from the 1943 CBC.

Updating my own post --

After looking at the Branchline truck, I'm going to go with the Tahoe 213 Barber S-2.  Not only is it a better truck, but the coil spacing looks more like this one.

Mike:

Yes, this answers the question, and raises a couple more.  The last two are well-known, but I don't know what the first two looked like.  My reference to the National B-1 was in error, from a different series of Erie cars that I saw on rr-fallenflags.

Here's the one that's the most relevant:    http://rr-fallenflags.org/el/frt/erie82051jpC.jpg

I have a few trucks that look like this, including the one that was in a lot of the Branchline kits (similar to the Barber), so I'll go with this one.

Hi Ron!

There are four sub-groups by truck style for ERIE 82000-82499

    82000-82099    Railway Truck Corp "Snug-Up"
    82100-82249    Dual Control
    82250-82399    ASF A-3 Ride Control
    82400-82499    Barber S-2 Stabilized

This is per the RR's 1946 diagram.  I have no direct information after 1960 but the ELHS issued diagram book with a 1965 date has no change to this detail on the same diagram.  By this date 386 cars from this and other groups had been upgraded and renumbered into the 70250-71504 group in a 1963-1964 Meadville Program.

Hope this helps!

Mike Schleigh in Grove City, Penna.

Photos on line show National B-1, ASF S-3, and Barber or something similar.

Some sort of glitch on my end, I guess.  It works now.
