whose rebuilt USRA boxcar this is

Claus Schlund \(HGM\)
 

Hi List Members,
 
I cannot quite make out whose rebuilt USRA boxcar this is, but someone will be able to nail it, especially given that there appears to be a map on the side of the boxcar
 
 
I myself am more interested in the left side of the photo which shows team tracks with overhead crane and flat cars with boiler loads found below.
 
Enjoy!

Re: Kadee early PS-1

Garth Groff and Sally Sanford <mallardlodge1000@...>
 

Elden,

I bought their Southern 262053, part number 4324. It lacks the five little stiffeners under the running board, there are no ribs on the outermost roof panels, and the ends are riveted. These are all features seen on most early PS-1s. The lettering matches a photo I have from an RMJ article. The main thing I question is the black running board, which I think is Ajax. Some of the very early PS-1s had AAR underframes, but Kadee included a PS-1 underframe. I don't know which cars had which. For some reason, I don't have Ed Hawkins' roster in my collection any more to check on these things. Must track that down on the Trainlife data base.

I know there have been a few mistakes on some Kadee cars (no Morton running boards until recently, for example), though they do try very hard to be accurate. I am very satisfied.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff  🦆

Folks;

 

Has anyone received an early PS-1 from Kadee?

 

Which RRs would be represented by this model?

 

I assume they’re up to Kadee’s usual standard of accuracy.

 

What do you think?

how they harvested ice for all those reefers!

Schuyler Larrabee
 

It's really quite fascinating.  A lake frozen hard enough that multiple cars were driven out on it. but it's the harvesting that is interesting.

 

How they did that.

I bought three NH cars when they were released, painted the doors for my era and renumbered two of them…still have to find correct door stencils to apply and clear coat.

Hello STMFC,

 

That’s a pretty good list that Ben Hom gave us.

 

6 ft - ATSF, CGW, CIL, CMO, CNW, COPR, CP, DSS&A, KCS, LS&BC, MKT, NYC, P&WV, SOU, UP

 

7 ft - B&M, LV, MEC, NH

 

8 ft - SAL, SL-SF, SOU

 

Yes, they do meet our standards and we’ve produced a few of these cars already, mostly sold out though. We may or may not do the 8 ft door cars. There are a number of paint schemes and roads we can now do that we could not do before because the cars were pre 1950 cars. The pre-1950 cars have quite a number of transitioning details that are quite different than the cars built after 1950. See Ed Hawkins info as he has helped us way beyond just a thank you.

 

We’re planning a few more this coming year, no I can’t tell you what roads or when.

Eldon,
I have received several of Kadee’s new models, and your assumption is correct.

Kadee models representing PS-1 box cars built in 1947 & 1948 are found at www.kadee.com. In addition to the good info that Ben provided before my reply was completed, I offer the following.

Catalogue numbers of Kadee models released to date (all are sold out at Kadee):

4322 ATSF 276749
4323 NH 33870
4324 Southern 262053
4326 UP 100675
4328 ATSF 276604
4329 NYC 167299

The above models released to date have either 6’ or 7’ door openings. Kadee’s “early” PS-1 box car models have retooled ends, roof (2 versions), side sill connections with crosswise underframe components, doors (all Superior 7-panel), some additional rivets not found on post-1950 PS-1s, and new end details that also include some hand brakes not previously offered.

The two roof versions are the original (but short-lived) PS-1 welded roof and alternate PS-1 roof. The alternate roof is like the post-1950 roof except lacking crosswise pressed corrugations on the two roof sheets adjacent to the ends.

Railroads matching the existing Kadee PS-1 bodies with 10-panel welded sides include the following.

LV, BM, CGW, KCS, MEC, NYC (original PS-1 welded roof)

ATSF, COPR, CMO, CNW, DSS&A, NH, P&WV, Southern, UP (alternate early-version riveted PS-1 roof)

Railroads owning PS-1s built in 1947-1948 with similar features but with 8’ door openings are SA, Seaboard, SL-SF, and Southern. Time will tell if Kadee will release models of these cars.

Incidentally, the link Ben provided for my PS-1 roster dates back to about 20 years ago and has since been extensively updated. I’ll work with Rob to provide the updated roster to the STMFC web site. 

Hope this answers your questions.
Regards,
Ed Hawkins

Not yet, though hopefully Sam Clarke will chime in with more information soon.

 

 

"Which RRs would be represented by this model?"

Depending on door widths, roads with PS-1s built before 1950 with 10-panel welded sides are:

 

6 ft - ATSF, CGW, CIL, CMO, CNW, COPR, CP, DSS&A, KCS, LS&BC, MKT, NYC, P&WV, SOU, UP

 

7 ft - B&M, LV, MEC, NH

 

8 ft - SAL, SL-SF, SOU

couple of years and it works just fine. :-)

Really nice model Lester.  I enjoy reading your build posts.  The Miner Ideal brake machine isn't something we see every day.  Judging by the size I am guessing it provided additional mechanical leverage?

Thanks for sharing your building
