Absolutely beautiful museum quality model! The mud splatter on the ends is very convincing, do you know how that was applied?

Those are not Allied full cushion trucks. But they are high speed trucks.

Responding to Tim's posting of photos, of note

in the first photo the RI boxcar has Allied full cushion trucks and that would make it an express car I believe.

Can't really make out the # on that car though.

Re: GRANDT LINE OIL DISTRIBUTOR

Douglas Harding
 

In a conversation with Dave Grandt, when I was writing a review of the kit for RMC (Jan 2002), he told me the two kits were based on oil jobbers he saw and photographed in Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. There was not a specific prototype, but rather a compilation of a number of oil jobbers. Conoco was a major company in that area as well as Texaco. The warehouse with its corrugated roof and siding, along with the open porch platform certainly looks like it is from that region of the country. The kit with the tanks and truck filling stand can be used almost anywhere.

 

The Quincy CA kits were done by Campbell.

Wasn't these 2 kits based on the series of articles that Rail Model Journal published circa 1997 about oil distributors? I remember some of the articles had scale plans of oil distributor warehouses. There was also one article where the owners of the oil jobbers talked about the rail traffic into their business.

No, that's a quite different dealer. IIRC the Grandt Lines kit was already available well before that RMJ article. I also have a faint recollection that Grandt did several structures based on prototypes in Quincy, California, including this dealer. Can anyone confirm that?

Re: ICC valuation

Richard Wilkens
 

I'm glad Ike posted his response on this subject. Since 2013 I have been the Archivist with the Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railway Archives located at the Pacific Northwest Railroad Archive at Burien, WA. We have been blessed to have a substantial amount of original SP&S records and one ledger in particular that I call the "Bible" which has copies of the ICC filings for Account 53 "Freight Train Cars" as well as passenger train cars (Account 54), work equipment (Account 57), steam locomotives (Account 51), and other locomotives (Account 52) from 1916 to 1970. In the case of the SP&S this is Form 239 so I wonder if the ICC Form 1742 that Ike provided samples of is actually the form number as used on the Southern? Anyone else have samples from other railroads?

I have attached a scan of SP&S Form 239 from December 31, 1952 and of note is that the "date of change" is unique in most cases a number simply shows 12-31-1952 and as time went on the December 31 date became more common.

As to the holdings at NARA at College Park, I have been there several times and have researched railroads from the Pacific Northwest. In the conversations I had with David Pfeifer at NARA it seems that existing records relating to equipment seem to primarily exist for railroads from the Southeastern part of the US. I'm sorry to hear that David has retired as he is a great resource.

It ha been on acknowledged that the tanks in the Grandt line oil distributor kit were superior to other offerings.  They had long been 9ff the market.  A few years ago Grandt Line had a table at an O Scale convention.  I was told that the molds for the tanks had been broken and would not be replaced.

 

Subsequently I obtained a kit on E Bay.  I wanted some additional tanks so I continued to monitor the site.  A week ago I scored another kit.  When it came in I was surprised to find the instructions were labeled SAN JUAN DETAILS (FORMALLY GRANDT LINE.  This may mean that the kit is back on the market if anyone is interested.
