Re: Shipping Potatoes

      I had talked on (parts of) this in years past in a presentation that started by me asking myself if I had too many reefers. 
In researching I found some AAR documents covering almost two years of 1956/1957. Later than my 53 modeling date however it formed the substructure of the presentation. 

Crops ripen at different times from southwest to the northeast US, Florida being an exception.
Of potatoes specifically look back to post 154950.  
    I know at other times we have talked of spuds here and it is era sensitive to some degree as Maine spuds in the 40s were later replaced by Idaho spuds (thanks to McD's) by the end of this lists time.  Also late season spuds store better than early spuds, and that affects shipment numbers overall.

Car volumes of spuds and where the loads originated can be found in the 154950 post.

Of my presentation, the busiest time for reefers is in winter in protected service keeping things from freezing. Those reefers do not magically disappear in summer, rather they protect commodities from excessive heat and in the files are found Perishable Commodities they hauled other than fruit and veggies.  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                Jim Dick - Roseville, MN 
I'll upload one of the sets of AAR reports  and in the reefer section is found potatoes.
Note the Canadian car mention on the first page. 
The entire set  of the AAR documents is about 13MG. If Mike or Jeff can figure a place to put this, I'll offer it up.

Shipping Potatoes

For the time period of this group, would the primary potato varieties have been shipped long distances (let’s say 2,000 miles-plus) or would they have been typically  limited to regional transport?

Thanks.

These cars were in fact purchased from NRL in August of 1946. There may have been some repairing once they were on PGE property.

Cars sold were formerly:

NRC 2659, 2685, 3002, 3019, 3082, 3122, 3143, 3254, 3521, 5203, 4277, 4466, 4484, 4518, 4615, 4641
5351,5909,5932, 12066, 12075

These cars were built by Haskell and Barker and Pullman between 1922 and 1925; cars as built were in the NRC 3000-3499; 4000-4499, and 5000-5499 and some had been renumbered while in NRC/NRL service. Complete drawings are available at the IRM Pullman library.

Between mid-1947 and early 1954 the total number of cars in the series had been reduced to ten, 810 - 819, through rebuilding, renumbering, conversion to other service, and scrapping in order to free up the 820+ number series for the arrival of all-steel overhead bunker refrigerators built in 10-54.  

Greg,
If it’s of interest to narrow the time period when the original 20 cars 808-827 were reduced to 10, the following ORER info may help to determine when the reduction occurred.

The following ORERs prior to 1953 do not specify any PGE car number series, just a total quantity of “Refrigerator” cars. From available data it’s unknown which car number was removed between 7/49 to 4/51. 

1/48, 7/49: (25)
4/51, 1/52: (24)
1/53, 10/53: 801-803 (3), 808-827 (10)
10/54: 801-803 (3), 810-819 (10), 820-824 (5, with an asterisk to indicate additions)

The reduction from 20 to 10 cars likely occurred in 1952. To further narrow the time, perhaps others can help with the April, July & October 1952 dates.
Regards,
Ed Hawkins

To amplify a bit on John Riddell’s comments, this group of twenty cars, 808 - 827, was purchased second-hand and received by the PGE in the 1947-48 time period.  While these cars, built in 11-22, are believed to be former Northern Refrigerator Line cars, no definitive information has been located.  While the ORERs show several series of NRC cars with dimensions that are close to those listed for the PGE cars, none are an exact match.  Between mid-1947 and early 1954 the total number of cars in the series had been reduced to ten, 810 - 819, through rebuilding, renumbering, conversion to other service, and scrapping in order to free up the 820+ number series for the arrival of all-steel overhead bunker refrigerators built in 10-54.  In August 1952 photos by Stan Styles, 820 & 822 were in FCR with no logo but placarded "For Company Service Only", and as late as July 1953, PGERy 821 was still in a patched out paint scheme as described by John.  The earliest photo I have seen is an Ernie Plant view of 812 in FCR with a caribou logo above the reporting marks weighed at Squamish in 6-47.  As the rebuilding - renumbering - scrapping program proceeded the cars were painted in the silver scheme with black lettering and the caribou logo in the more common location above the dimensional data.  810 and 812 had corner grab irons while the others had ladders and photographs show 812 to have a deeper centre sill than the others.  A few of the cars (811, 812 and at least one other, the number of which could not be read from a photo) received the 1962 (beyond the date range of this list) paint scheme of FCR with the “stacked” Pacific Great Eastern lettering in place of the caribou logo.

Rob,

I think quite a few PRR modelers (and modelers of other roads, who model PRR cars) have PRR 123456, an X28A, with two fused half doors.

I also happen to have NP 12345, as sold by Rapido, and completely by accident as I did not intentionally select that number.

It's one of the earlier Tk-C/D/E or -F. Oval domes, three tank supports between the bolsters while the later Tk-G/H/I and -J had round domes and four supports. Also tanks held in place with straps and head blocks rather than tank anchors. (Which was true of the Tk-G and -H when built, but these are definitely earlier.)

Tangent 1951 Delivered 9' Door PS-1s Available Today! RTR AND Kits!

Tangent Scale Models
 

Tangent’s May release kicks off with our first ALL-NEW HO freight car system for 2021: HO Scale Pullman-Standard PS-1 40’ Boxcar with 9’ Door!  No pre-orders are required – these cars are available right now!  This is the third Pullman-Standard boxcar system – after our PS-1 40’ Mini Hy-Cube and PS-1 40’ Combination door box cars - in our line of cars that introduce market-leading design and tooling practices, and is geared toward consumers who desire the most accurate models with a “family-appearance” between prototypes manufactured by the same builder.


Pullman-Standard’s PS-1 box car line evolved to feature a variety of different door combinations in order to satisfy customer requests for “purpose-built” box cars.  Across the transition and early diesel eras, between 1951 and 1962, Pullman-Standard built 9-foot door, 40-foot long PS-1s for several railroads.  Each railroad specified different doors and other appliances, and as production progressed the exterior sill and end arrangements changed.  Railroads purchased the 9-foot door cars for various services, including forest products, machinery, appliances, paper, and merchandise, where the large 9-foot door opening made loading with forklifts significantly easier.  These cars wandered all over the North American rail network into the late 1980s.  

 

The Tangent Scale Models PS-1 9-foot door boxcar will stand out on your layout just like the real cars did.  Our models include incredible road-specific detailing, and we have produced three road-specific body shells.  Each model includes see-through running boards, accurate door options, multiple hand brake options, wire brake piping, release rods, metal underbody-mount stirrup steps, and fine bracket grabs and ladders.  Like all Tangent models, these cars come standard with HO scale’s most accurate colors and car stenciling.  These models are finished with correct road-specific plain or roller bearing 50-ton trucks, representing a total of four all-new truck designs for our 40’ PS-1 system car replicas.  Finally, our cars are weighted properly and are equipped with Kadee® couplers which means they operate as good as they look.  

 

Our May 2021 release includes four railroad schemes:

 

- Southern (SOU) "Original 1951" illustrates the first PS-1 with 9’ Doors built by Pullman-Standard.  The Southern Railway ordered more than 2,000 of these 9’ door cars during the transition era!  These cars have distinctive “early” side sill configurations that have a pronounced deep side sill support underneath the door area only, ending before the trucks.  These models have the early version of the Superior 9’ door, and Miner handbrake housings and wheels like the prototype did.  These cars have the “classic” transition-era red carbody with red trucks.  Stenciling includes “The Southern Serves the South” logo on the right side of the car, a Pullman Bessemer plant logo, and other Southern lettering technicalities just like the prototype.  The roof is unpainted (galvanized) but includes the typical Pullman overspray onto the top of it from the sides and at the ends.  Finally, these models ride on Tangent’s gorgeous new Barber S-2 50-Ton plain bearing truck, complete with separate brake beam detail.  Our Southern models are offered with your choice of 12 road numbers, where SKUs 01-06 have a 11-51 build date, SKUs 07-12 have a 12-51 shop date.

 

- Chicago and North Western (C&NW) "Original 12-56" offers another classic box car scheme, this time the C&NW “brown” car with black ends.  This beautiful car includes the sharp, large C&NW logo in black and white on the upper right carbody side.  The left side of the car includes the CNW reporting marks with lines above and below them as found on these Pullman-Standard painted cars.  Unlike the Southern cars above, these boxcars were built at Pullman-Standard’s Michigan City, IN plant and of course our car covers that correctly with the stenciling next to the door.  These cars include the second version of the Superior 9’ door, with a different horizontal support pattern than the Southern car noted above.  These cars have a black car cement roof, but the roof includes the typical Pullman carbody color overspray onto the top of it from the sides.  This new model rides on an all-new truck for Tangent Scale Models, the 50-Ton ASF A-3 plain bearing truck.  Our C&NW models are offered with your choice of 6 road numbers.  And don’t forget – C&NW stenciled “Safety First” with yellow stenciling on the carbody side corners!   

 

- Green Bay and Western (GB&W) "Original 6-59" marks the first GB&W model from Tangent Scale Models.  GB&W’s yellow scheme looks great on these 9’ door cars!  The right side of the car includes the large “Green Bay and Western” letters and the left side includes the distinctive “Green Bay Route” logo with red background.  These cars are assigned cars, as identified with the stenciling “Assigned for paper loading at Biron, Wisconsin” and a “When empty return to Green Bay and Western R.R.” notation, typical for assigned cars of the period.  These cars have a black car cement roof, but the roof includes the typical Pullman yellow overspray onto the top of it from the sides.  Our GB&W models come complete with an accurate 9’ Pullman-Standard door, which is different from the earlier versions.  Like the Northern Pacific cars released in April 2021, this new model rides on the new Tangent 50-Ton ASF A-3 Ride Control Roller Bearing truck – with rotating “Timken” bearing caps!  Our GB&W models are offered with your choice of 6 road numbers.   

 

- Milwaukee Road (MILW) "Original 3-1961" illustrates our newest exact replica for the Milwaukee Road modeler.  Delivered in Milwaukee Road’s standard box car red color, the 9’ door PS-1 was a large example fleet car utilized for many different services, similar to the “ribside” fleet but more useful in the 1960s and onward due to the larger door arrangement.  This portion of the Milwaukee Road car order had Camel/Youngstown 9’ sliding doors on them, which we represent beautifully with our models.  These cars have Ajax handbrakes and wheels on them.  The Milwaukee Road PS-1 9’ door cars include the large, classic “Milwaukee Road” stenciled herald in white on the left side of the car, with the Milwaukee Road herald located on the right side of the car.  The roof was left unpainted (galvanized) but includes red overspray, just like the prototype did.  This new model rides on another all-new truck for Tangent Scale Models, the 50-Ton Barber S-2 Roller Bearing truck – with rotating “Timken” bearing caps!  Our Milwaukee Road model is offered with 12 road numbers.
