Hi Tony,

My brain and fingers have never had a strong connection. I found out when I tried to learn a musical instrument and again when I learned to type. I do proofread what I type, but misteaks slip through.

That would be awful tasting cola. Better the COAL be coked.

Re: Southern railway flat cars

I found this note posted by Robert Burns back in 2007:

"1954 was the year SR "officially" changed the color of hoppers, flats, gondolas, etc. from black to "freight car brown/red", but it took several years to get everything painted, so black cars ran up into the 60's.

 

1959 was the year the lettering changed from Roman to the Gothic/Block, but again, it didn’t happen overnight."


Cannot vouch for its accuracy.

Looking for photo of flatcar with diner load

Bud Rindfleisch
 

Hello,
    I am looking for a photo, if anyone might know of one, of a flat car hauling a diner built by the Ward & Dickinson Co, Silver Creek, NY. I saw this in a Pennsy video awhile back and hoped for a better view. These were smallish diners most likely of sheet aluminum but not likely stainless steel as they were painted. The one in the video was tarped with lettering on the tarp stating what it was. Looks like it would make an easy flat car load with a covered, carved piece of balsa.
Appreciate any help or ideas.

Garth, you don't need any archives on your computer.  The Messages files at groups.io go back to 12/11/2000 (!).

The hoppers are USRA design triples, which Westerfield still makes in HO.  Longacre is at the east end of Smithers (I actually have a book on Smithers).  This was an area that produced good coking cola.  The Cannelton Coal & Coke Company was a big producer and started in 1857.  There are some interesting photos and information at this website: http://www.coalcampusa.com/sowv/kanawha/cannelton/cannelton.htm .

Paul,

We discussed this question a couple of years ago, so it should be in the archives. Sadly, I had this discussion archives, but it somehow got blown off my computer.

I think this happened in the mid 1950s. First came red cars with Roman lettering, and then
soon after (late 50s) Southern adopted the block lettering style.

A modeler in your area named Don McDougall might know.  But Jim King is a Southern expert.

From the looks of the freight cars in these images, it seems the Pennsy spit-shine crew wasn’t called into action on that G22 gondola. The NYC spit-shine crews sure kept busy on some great looking flats and gondolas.
