I think you're extrapolating from an example, or a few, that don't represent the majority of PE freight cars.

Hi

The Pacific Electrics own cars had an unusual hand brake arrangement because of the tight curves. Foreign cars must have traveled over the PE lines with standard handbrake linkage how was this done?

Yeah, got that, but the “Click to start” suggests that there’s a video or something.  You can get to the “Products” without the “Click to start.”  So I’m wondering what the video might show us.

I'm not sure Bob but I think the SRE roof may be a replacement - I don't know when they were rebuilt
but I think they originally had Hutchins roofs.

The car number is obscured.

While the picture was taken in 1974 the car does not appear to reflect modifications, at least to my eyes.

Well, there's a difference between ATSF and SFRD. That could explain the differing abbreviations.

Can we assume that "RD" in the three character initial column is short for SFRD?

These are both technically passenger cars, same as express reefers are. Note the photo of the second car shows the end, which has a buffer and steam and signal lines, and marker brackets on the corner handrail post. Can't tell exactly what the brake system is, but it's more complex than AB.

Re: Ho scale barbed wire along ROW

Jack,

Good point. I don't know how many pairs of blue jeans I've torn up crossing barbed wire fences in my younger days, but never took note of which side the wire was stapled to the posts.

Inbound traffic for the elevators on my layout include fence posts and galvanized fencing wire.

I made my own barbed wire but whatever you do, be sure to install it
correctly. I did an article on my fence and a reader pointed out that I had
the wire on the wrong side of the posts. It always goes on the side with the
animals...I didn't make that mistake again!

At St. Louis or Cocoa in years past I seem to recall a vendor that had HO
scale barbed wire and possibly even a tool to string it. Does anyone recall
the vendor I am talking about? I think it was one of the 3D rapid
prototyping vendors.
