I like the searchlights in the next gondola.  Maybe that's where Lionel got some of its ideas? 

Nice additions for the Westerfield CN gondolas.  Maybe I'll have to add one to my layout.  Any ideas on what the guns are and HO model sources for hem?

Here are two more Milwaukee box cars. The ribside is an Accurail/Ribside Cars undec I decaled with Speedwitch and a set offer now by Gary Roe. It’s a set Mark Vaughan made for Stan Rydarowicz’s spent grain cars. The set also has hopper car decals.
The single sheathed car is an upgraded Accurail car (lipstick on a pig thread) I used the same Gary Roe set along with scraps from other Milwaukee sets.
Cars got some Prismacolor pencil and Pan Pastels.
I see the brake wheel needs some attention on the SS car....

Re: Real or no?

Gary Roe
 

When I worked for the N&W (1974-1982), we had a few Troop Sleepers that the Wabash had bought and turned into bunk cars for MoW gangs.  They still had the Allied trucks under them; but they obviously were not interchanged.

Allied Full-Cushion trucks were banned from interchange in 1959. I don't believe they were ever outlawed, that is, prohibited by law or regulation backed by law.

What product was Monon moving with these cars?  Sand for glass?

I just finished another Covid build.  This is a Smokey Mountain Southern, 1953 blt date, 53'-6" gondola.  Jim at Smokey Mt has sold this line of models and it appears the new owner is going to release this car in the near future.
This is a nicely done one piece casting with well done resin and etched metal details.  I haven't figured what load to put in it as of now.

Bill,

 

Adding to Mike's response, I started watching Monon rolling stock closely from 1963 on and never saw a gray one.

  Few photos exist.

 

Sunshine offered a mini-kit for this car and Bowser offered the full on paint and lettering on a r-t-r model.

Bill,

4-5 years at the most, I have a "Bob's" photo from 1952 and the paint is barely legible.  They were repainted in the scheme used by the Kato models.

On page 200 of RPCyc 35 is a discussion of the Allied trucks, their issues and the fix.  The same page also has photos of the car in question.

The Allied Full-Cushion trucks were outlawed in the 1950's, so the current trucks may be close enough - if that paint job was still on the car when that change took place.

The January 1953 ORER Shows these cars listed as 64700-64704 as Freight Equipment. Microscale decal set 87-1512 has the lettering for these cars but in black. Bev-Bell did these cars in the correct colors but on an athearn boxcar.
