The car in the first photo looks like it has an "Athearn" platform around the dome.

Not sure if this was answered or not but it looks like repack dates for the journals. Don't know if the upper and lower box had separate significance or not. I can barely make out the wording on one of your photos and it appears to say RPKD which would stand for "Repacked".  This was usually accompanied by a date and location of where that service took place. Hope this helps.

Hey everyone,

I looked at photos of various PFE reefers from the mid 1930s and onward which contain these boxes with lettering in them. What information is put into these boxes and why do they change from the upper box to the lower box?

I unfortunately don't have the Pacific Fruit Express Second Edition book which would answer my question which is why I asked.

Thanks, Ray

Andrew,

It adds more problems.  The molded center sill and bolsters on the IMWX/Red Caboose underframe are much thinner (~ 0.050") than on the Intermountain cars.  The lower 0.045" of the center sill and bolsters is molded on the bottom of the floor on the IMWX/Red Caboose cars (see attached photo).  Using this underframe on an Intermountain car requires shimming the underframe 0.045".  I learned this the hard way when I tried to use an IMWX/Red Caboose on a riveted PS-1 kitbash using an Intermountain 10' 6" boxcar.

Sincerely,
Rich Remiarz

Assuming one had a spare IMWX/Red Caboose underframe available, would it be more straightforward to swap it under the Intermountain carbody, or would that add new problems?

Bob,

These tank cars are actually early covered hoppers for carrying dry bulk chemicals. Note the discharge gates along the side.

Yours Aye,

Friends,

While rambling through my collection, I came upon this view of Cambria & Indiana hopper 1888. Oddly, this was taken in Charlottesville, Virginia, on the C&O (well, really CSX by then), probably in late 1984. What a car from a 35-mile Pennsylvania shortline was doing in a C&O train is beyond me.

In those days, the former C&O Mountain Division saw many trains each way. Trains stopped on the west side of town before moving into the small yard. This happened to be right behind the computer store where I worked, so I often got a good view of cars, though few photos. 

This car series is not listed in my October 1958 ORER, so I suspect it was a second-hand purchase, possibly beyond our era of interest, though the car itself certainly dates to our period.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

I just wish it had higher definition.  Wondering if the original was copied to a digital file at higher quality than is on the Youtube site.
