Thanks Doug! Will take the files down to FedEx Office & blow them up to11x17. Used to be a program where I could import or scan a photo & outline the lettering on a different layer. May be a lettering alphabet which is close in "O".

Thanks again.

While ridding my duplicate & corrupted backup files on new to me Lenovo 17" Ideapad, I came across the 1913 Car Builders. Wandered thru the pages & came across a CGW wood superstructure box with a fabricated double beam steel underframe. ACF built it w/ 50T capacity.



Ck'd my Westerfield 1935 & my paper 12/1938 ORER - not enough data to identify the numbers. Remembered my 12/1928 ORER - there it was - the 21000 series [3 cars] & 22000 thru 25798 series [1690] - capacity dropped to 40T. Ck'd my digital copies of the RR Gazette, CGW first placed an order for 1500 cars in mid-1909, then a few months later increased the order by 500 cars w/ AC&F..



By 12/1938, the 21000 were gone & the 22000 were down to 242. Their reefer fleet dropped from 443 to 6 in the same time period.



Anyone have a photo of this car? Need truck type & lettering for late 20s/early 30s.

Photo: Mystery Freight Cars (Circa 1900)

Photo from the Wisconsin Historical Society:

https://www.wisconsinhistory.org/Records/Image/IM9760

Description:

“McCormick Reaper Works and wood shop stock yard as seen from across a canal. In the foreground is a rail yard with a small engine and rail cars. The factory was owned by the McCormick Harvesting Machine company before 1902. In 1902 it became the McCormick Works of the International Harvester Company. The factory was located at Blue Island and Western Avenues in the Chicago subdivision called Canalport.”

Can anyone identify these freight cars?

I agree with Ralph. Having lived in SE Pennsylvania for 63 of my 76 years, we get snow, it melts. Snow coverage is intermittent, which is hiw I read what Bruce said. It may have snowed a week before the photo was taken,  and it melted.

I was just looking at the height difference in the cars, which is quite noticeable! I agree with you
that if 17145 has R+3/4 ends then it's the Blueprint model which is the correct body. Either one of
the models is too high, or the other is too low.

Riding high !

Clark says in his message that car #32452 is an Intermountain car. If the bolster has not been modified, that's why it is riding high. Shows up at the coupler too. Not that the Branchline car is a shorter car.

I knew exactly what Bruce meant, and I’d have said it the same way.
 
I’ve lived in Portland, Maine, for about forty-five years, and don’t recall a Winter with continuous snow cover.  Same goes for the four years I lived in Juneau, Alaska.  Northern Maine and the mountains to the west and into New Hampshire, however, are another matter entirely.  By way of examples, the first of the attached photos was taken a day or two after the February 2017 blizzard, and the second was taken during the March 2017 blizzard.  February’s snow was completely gone before the mid-March event began.

Re: M&STL Ice Deck, Marshalltown, Iowa 1940s

Douglas Harding
 

To follow up on these photos, I posted to the MSTL list and Roger Ward responded: The 2 cars on top of ice deck were MSTL refrigerator. The old cars got changed out. Put 2 new cars up there. Retired 2 cars. I have the no#s . Did it in the 30,s sometime.

 

To clarify - you can just see on the back side of the ice deck two reefers, elevated up on legs so they are level with the deck. They sit perpendicular to the deck, I think with a narrow platform between them.

Friends,

 

This morning I did a salvage job on this somewhat dodgy photo my mother shot, probably in the 1940s when she still lived in Marshalltown, Iowa. The locomotive, M&STL 605, we may assume was the object of the photo. I hope you can forgive her for the lack of technique.

 

What is more significant to this group is the full view of M&STL's ice deck in the background. I've enhanced this shot about as far as I can to bring up the detail. So here is an image you can ponder. I have no information about the other buildings to the rear, but it does look like there is some sort of refractory kiln back there.

 

The boxcars in the middle distance appear to be similar to 28124, preserved at the Western Railway Museum in California. The enlarged door was added by the U.S. Navy, who used this particular car to shuttle ammunition (probably iron bombs) around the Concord Naval Weapons Station.

 

Yours Aye,

My memory isn't reliable, but it tells me RMC once had an article suggesting these cars were assigned to the GE Appliance Part Service in Louisville, Ky.  Enough so, the car on my layout is in appliance service.  I post this in case someone knowing more will comment. I have no access to old RMC's.

Considering the lack of snow anywhere in the picture, could it be September 2?

No. Americans don't write dates that way. It is month, day, year. So February it is. Not to mention it is obviously COLD, due to the ice on several cars.

I will also note, as others have done, that Philly does not have snow on the ground all winter.
