Re: [Non-DoD Source] [RealSTMFC] USRA open cars

Ken et al., 

I forgot to mention the 1919 Car Builder's Cyclopedia, which has drawings of all of the USRA cars and it is no longer under copyright. You can find it through HathiTrust here https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015006057858&view=1up&seq=5

There is also Ted Culotta's great presentation on the USRA 50ton gons and modelling an L&M version from the 2018 St. Louis RPM. I found a copy floating around on the internet...

Re: What is a "Manuta gondola"?

Douglas Harding
 

IF you scroll to the bottom of the listing you will see a series of photos, of a short dump car, that has a raised sloped center board to send the contents outward. The listing says no couplers, but the photos clearly show Kadee couplers on the car. Looks to be sitting on a green Overland box, but no end of the box is shown. I would guess the seller does not know what he is selling.

I suspect it’s a typo for Mantua.  The listing has ended so couldn’t look at it.

I have never seen this car before. Anyone of you knowing something about it? Is this after a US prototype at all?

Many thanks

Not Mantua. And it does not appear to be US prototype but does appear to be high quality brass.

Re: [RailwayBullShippersGroup] Stockyard List Circa 1921

Schuyler Larrabee
 

A day or so ago, I responded to a mention of a Stockyard in Watertown MA, by mentioning that there were stockyards in Allston.  Allston and Brighton, mentioned in Doug’s listing below, are adjacent neighborhoods in Boston.  Looking to refresh my memory, I went to the BAHS web pages - http://www.bahistory.org/ to look at the Sanborn maps there;  The 1899 maps show interesting things about the area, in particular, map 37, which includes a siding to the “Boston Slaughtering and Melting Associates, conveniently located directly adjacent to the Charles River.  This line must have been something like the topography resulting in the MR article years ago “The case for the non-branching branch,” as the BS&MA location is much lower than the main line.

 

The 1909 Map is a little more interesting.  Map 15 shows the Brighton Stock Yards (scroll down a little) on the left (south of the main line) and the B&A Paint Shop alongside the main line.   Map 25 shows win roundhouses for the B&A, as well as a mysterious roundhouse in the lower right corner  - mysterious because in modern times, there’s no space for it there.  A puzzling find.  Map 23 shows the extension of the yard tracks to the west, serving a major coal trestle.

 

1916 maps 03 and 14 show the continued existence of the Boston Slaughtering & Melting Association along the river.

 

And in 1925, maps 3 and 14 continue to show this, with pleasant street title added, Abbatoir Ave.  Map 15 shows the Brighton Stock Yards still there, 23 and 25 show the enormous expansion of the Beacon Park yard and engine terminal.

 

Perhaps more than you want to know, but the evolution of the rail-served businesses in the Allston/Brighton area is interesting.  The only trace of all this that remained ‘til recently was the “Stockyards” restaurant, which had a NH (IIRC) diner well above the level of the main line, integrated into the restaurant proper.  It was removes several years ago.

The question has been raised as why California is not on the list.

National Provisioner was published weekly in 1921, which is Vol #65. Without the issue number, one will have to search the entire year’s publication to find the correct page 23.

This is what I found on line.

Most likely, yes, either from the railroad paying out for the wreck or the scrap dealer who got the car afterwards.

Doug and Friends,

California had two major stockyards, South San Francisco and Los Angeles, plus a lot of smaller ones serving local needs. Heck, there was even an ostrich farm/stockyard big enough to have its own narrow gauge railway system.

Attached is an early postcard of the South San Francisco stock yards. 

Yours Aye,

Re: [Non-DoD Source] [RealSTMFC] USRA open cars

Having just recently researched the gons for an O scale Intermountain build, there are a few good sources out there on the 50 ton composite gons: 

Railmodel Journal Feb 2000

“USRA Composite Gondola: Construction in HO Scale,” Robert
Hundman, Mainline Modeler, September 1981

Jul-Aug81 Mainline Modeler

"USRA Freight Cars" by James Lane in Railroad History, No. 128 (The Railway and Locomotive Historical Society, Spring 1973)

Facebook images are quite compressed, too. I don’t think it works as well to share fine detail work, unless your camera skills are very good.

That's where Facebook Groups shines, I would just dump all 12 photos in a single post and then add the build details to each photo's page and then we could comment on individual cars or on the overall post. That's where much of the Resin Freight Car interest appears to be going.  Since most of the offline questions/interest is in the non-resin Ertl cars, I'll make one post here with details on what it took to detail up those interesting little cars.

Right!

X31A perhaps? Patches all along the bottom.

   Any ORER will tell you that yes, it's an X31A. PRR helpfully included classes in listings.
