Rock Island 40' PS-1 boxcar again

Bud Rindfleisch
 

A couple weeks ago, a photo of a Rock Island 40' PS-1 boxcar was posted, I missed whether the doors were 6' or 7', can anyone confirm or repost the pic? At least I think it was a PS-1, I know it was a 10' 6" IH car.

        I did love the somewhat precarious looking planks.

It is clear that the tank car closest to the camera has the tank secured to the underframe by a cable that encirles the dome. The rest of the cars in the photo might have a more 'modern' tank anchorage.

    It's not a cable, it's a rod, called a dome yoke, and is attached on both sides. It prevents rotation around the long axis of the tank. The invention of the center anchor obviated the need for these yokes.

Agree, Thanks, Bob.  UTLX 629 has a Bettendorf steel underframe circa 1903.  According to the 1919 tank car tariff, it had a capacity of 12062 gallons with a dome capacity of 232 gallons.

HI Bob,

 

Thanks for the fascinating photo. I'm thinking, if I fill in some blanks in the photo, that the car closest to the camera possibly maybe is UTLX 629.

 

Note that NONE of the tank cars come equipped with any sort of dome platform nor any real place for employees to stand while working on loading/unloading the cars. To make up for this shortcoming, every car has a plank of wood to serve as a walkway and a work platform bridging from the car to the loading area.

 

I'm impressed that the loading area's elevated wooden walkway does NOT seem to be all soaked with oil!

 

It is clear that the tank car closest to the camera has the tank secured to the underframe by a cable that encirles the dome. The rest of the cars in the photo might have a more 'modern' tank anchorage.

 

What a glimpse into life over a century ago

The UTLX reporting marks places it in the mid teens for later.

Not SP, but HB&T. Since I was born in Houston, I’ve been interested in modeling a couple of HB&T SW1200s. Attached is the EMD paint diagram. It’s pretty straight forward: all yellow on a black loco.

 

I suspect that a few Houston-area modelers might also purchase sets, as this scheme has never been done before in HO to my knowledge (Herald King did the all yellow with herald and black letters).
