This was the Hopkins plant. Served by the M&StL on the north side and the Milwaukee on the south side.  MM had a “ downtown” plant as well.  The Bay window caboose underframes were built there
Some where i have a map of the Hopkins area....

Sam:

I'll throw in another vote for an UNDEC kit. I just started two Rock Island 20070-20084 BX cars and didn't realize until this email that I had the wrong car (4100). 

I'll put that project aside and hope for an UNDEC. 

Thanks

According to Norfolk and Western Coal Cars, by Andrew Dow, that number series (12000 - 12999) was built by American Car & Foundry in 1922 at a cost of $1,900.00 per car.

Clark,

 

The ladders came with the kit.  There are a number of etched brass parts in the kit including the ladders, running board end supports, and lateral running board supports.  The kit goes together very well.  The only parts I have added so far are PSC air hose brackets, Kadee 158 couplers, and Intermountain 0.088” wheelsets.  I will be able to prime this car and the other cars I am building here, but painting and decaling will have to wait until I get home.

Sam,

Just wanted to say thanks for listening, responding, and being a part of the community.  I would extend the same thanks to Dennis from Accurail, Andrew from Westerfield, and David from Tangent.  (Did I miss someone, sorry if I did?) We are always pining for our favorite prototypes and it is great that you all are listening. And I am sure many of us are also very thankful that you continue to offer parts, as that has got to be tedious to manage. 

I believe most of my purchases in the last few years have been from your companies, go figure!

Tim do you need to see a photo of the Southern with a 6 foot door? We might make a few mistakes but not a 6 foot door mistake.  Also ORER’s information is dependent on the actual RRs submitting info and it’s not always accurate or up to date. They are a great resource but we try to back up their info with other sources where possible.

Re: Boxcar Dimension Questions for a Decal Project

Matt-

I think you’ve done about the best you can do with the image of No. 13.   I imported both images into Corel Draw and got the

23 sized about the same as 13 by putting a box around the AMERICAN STRAW BOARD COMPANY lettering on the 23 and resizing the image to match the box on the 13. 

I think the lettering is a good match to one that I think I got from the Old Time list “Signpainter Serif Block Medium”.

Contact me off list if you want the graphics…if you have more pictures I would be happy to make up a pdf for you to make decals from.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] Boxcar Dimension Questions for a Decal Project

 

All, 

 

My father recently got the itch to reproduce a 1907 American Strawboard boxcar (as seen here and here) and has given me the job of researching decals.

 

I used Photoshop Element’s perspective crop tool (learned from Ted Culotta’s Lightroom clinic and discussion on this forum - thanks!) to straighten the image at the first link, with I thought decent results (see first attached image). The second image, when straightened with the same tool turned out oddly compressed left to right. I spoke to my son (UX developer/designer) and brother (graphic artist) about this, and both were initially perplexed about the result (see the second image).

 

With that background, here’s my question. I can fix the second image by specifying the ratio of height to length when using the perspective crop tool - if I have dimensions.

 

Length

  • Is the 36’ dimension for this car the inside length, the outside “box” length or over the strike plates?
  • Is there a standard dimension for the siding board width? 

 

Height

  • Is there a standard door-opening height?
  • Is there a known/standard sheathing height?
  • As a stand-in for the second point, what is the inside height of these cars? It’s not listed on the car side.

All-

More likely the box car was coupled to the end of the cut on the coal trestle.   It had been unloaded (bagged coal or maybe stoves?) when somebody tried to add another car or maybe intended to remove the empty boxcar and instead ran the gondola (which was not loaded with the box car but with coal as can be seen spilled out of its end).  The light boxcar, tipped off the end of the coal trestle, then the gon ran underneath it and with it ran down to the street.  The boxcar would not have been loaded on a shorter gondola and would have had no business on the coal trestle.  Wonder if they lowered the mess down to street level and ran the cars back to an interchange track on the streetcar line?

Looks like something I would have done in an ops session!!

Evidently the boxcar had been badly loaded on the gondola. not enough tie downs and they had ignored the fact it made an out of Gauge load.

No recognition, Jakc, but I find it interesting that each bracket on the side of that car has two holes in it, maybe to facilitate adding stakes to the sides?

Nice!
And some may also be interested in the truss-rodded flatcar still earning its keep in 1927. Steel center sills, I assume. I can only make out a few digits and parts of letters. The two level truss rods are a bit distinctive, and the queen posts seem to be a single casting for both rods.  Any recognition?
