Tim, are you sure they are end doors and not reinforced ends. Those ends remind me of the reinforcement the NH did to their ice cars in company service.

Just a thought...

had modified ends.

Hi List Members,
 
Nice 1952 image of a reefer at Montgomery Storage Philadelphia PA. The reefer side appears to be painted in a two color scheme, and has a herald but I do not recognize it right away. Is this a BAR reefer?
 
 
Enjoy!

The original name of the line was Lewiston Augusta & Waterville, which pretty much describes where it ran. It failed in 1919 and was renamed  Androsoggin & Kennebec. It was pruned back to just the city and suburban lines around Lewiston in 1937, and totally abandoned in 1941. The Electric Interurban Railways in America by Hilton and Due states that they did handle interchange freight cars short distances.

If you are interested in using Central Valley Trucks, I may what you need.  They were the gold standard back in the day, and while not as detailed as some of the newer trucks on the market, the rolling characteristics are still quite good.

Agreed. Bur whatever it is, it's street railway / interurban equipment. Note the cars have radial couplers. Street railways liked spoked wheels, or wheels with holes through the wheel plate. The theory was it disrupted the resonance of the plate, and cut down on the howl as the wheels went around tight streetcar radius curves.

A very tough load to model. You want the brand new look of the boats, but with the tarps just son.

Tim,

   Are you aware of any  photos of BAR reefers (ex-NYC) that did not have end doors?

Thanks,
George Courtney

Re: Wrecked M-K-T Stock Cars

They were "modern" stock cars, built 1937=1938.

For your enjoyment:

Two wrecked M-K-T stock cars on the Toledo Terminal Railroad. I don't know the date, but the derelict steam locomotive is TT 62.

M-K-T 47485 is from series 47001-47500. Inside dimensions: L 40' 6", W 8' 6", H 8' 7"' doors: 6' X 8' 2"; capacity:  2980 cubic feet, 80T. Single deck. According to my October 1958 ORER, there were still 410 of these cars left. Surprisingly for a Texas railroad, this was the only class of stock cars M-K-T owned at that time.

Yours Aye,

Philip:

I can't find parts of my instructions for the CV car, and I'm not sure I would rely on them very much if I could.  And I have not yet built my kit, so caveat emptor.

The trucks are a pretty conventional Commonwealth express truck, with a 7-0 wheelbase.  Precision Scale #32480 is a very good match, and the Athearn 90383 trucks are pretty close as well.  In either case, the wheels should be 36" AFAIK.

The other details that jump out at me are the steam and signal hoses for passengers service, as well as the buffer over the coupler.  The attached builder's photo, courtly of John Nehrich and the NEB&W website show these.  It also shows a club-style ratchet brake as-built.  Some later photos indicate a conventional stemwinder brake, but I have no idea when they might have been swapped in.

Hope this helps.  I'm afraid I have nothing on the Dairyman's cars.

More likely because of poor web design. For a LONG time, it was not Mac compatible.
