Whose hopper cars were these?

David
 

B&LE is the likely candidate, though Carnegie Steel also had cars of this design.

You mean the ACL and AT&SF don't count?

There is a treasure trove of photos in there of the "A" roads.  Not hard to find.

Guys;

 

I have asked my B&LE/Union RR/EJ&E/other steel roads friends, who model earlier than I do, and will report back.

 

The defect card holder is a clue…..

I vaguely see B&LE marks under the paint outs.

Hi List Members,

 

Whose hopper cars were these? Unique construction. It appears the reporting marks were painted out, leaving only the road number but no sign of the owning road. A 1936 date shows on the side of the car. Archbar trucks also help date the scene.

 

 

Thanks in advance

It's interesting that at the main index there are no railroads whose reporting marks start with the letter A.

Clark, click on the link originally provided by Steve Hile in this email.

 

Then click on “Freight Car Photo Gallery” in the bracket of “Scanned Drawings & Images”

 

Enjoy!

 

Schuyler, (who had to puzzle out the next step from the Index page, too.

Back in the days of the Yahoo groups, Jim Kinkaid posted a large number of builder's photos, mostly Pullman Standard, to the files area of the Modern Freight Car list.  It was not possible to migrate those photos to the groups.io platform that our groups have now migrated to.

 

However, through the efforts of MFCL list owner, Jim Eager and Jim Kinkaid, himself, we are now able to make those photos available again on a Smug Mug site that can be accessed from the Pullman Library website at

 

 

Thanks to Bob Webber, the curator of the Pullman Library, for making this possible.

 

And a special thanks to Jim Kinkaid for adding more photos to the file so that the time period extends back to include car built before the time period of the MFCL.  So, there is a lot of items of interest to freight car fans, including a nice selection of Rock Island cars for folks on that list.

 

Please take a look and enjoy.

I wonder if they had internal slope sheets. There's no exterior sign of them but it seems they would be necessary in order to clear the car. Maybe the roof hatches, or at least a roof hatch, was big enough for a person to get in to clear the car interior . . . but no external sign of that, either, that I can see.

Nicely done Eric! Looks great.
I have tried a Vallejo Acrylic Model Wash made for Military Modelers. I used the dark rust and was happy with how it flowed on a flat finish. These are all pre thinned. I need to add some more colors and practice with these promising washes. Link to product below

I use Grumbacher oil paint and make washes with the turpentine replacement terpinol.  In my experience it wets and flows way better over detail with a flat finish. YMMV, of course.

Bruce,

Thanks! I am using oil paints and Grumbacher Turpentine; I'll try an even thinner wash next time over a gloss surface.
