Can anyone provide scans or images of the C&I ORER pages for 1955 and 1956. Don't need ever issue just one per year. Thanks 

Brian,

Attached is C&I for Jan. 1956. The left edge is tight in the gutter & difficult to push down flat.

The other possibility is it was used as a parts bucket to support the other cars

Many thanks, Roger.  That 21st car makes me wonder if PGE number 807 was to have been used for that car but, for some reason, they never showed it in the “Equipment Record” book.  At some point, I will have to get over to Victoria and see what else I can dig up in the old PGE Accounts.

Based on photographs I have, PGE 812 and 822 both show the deeper centre sill.  As 812 is the only post-1952 photograph I have that shows a car with the deeper centre sill, it appears that the other eight cars in Lot 1 were all among those written off in 1951 or 1952.

Hi Brian,  

I tried to reach out to you offline a couple of times, but I kept getting an error message stating "the address couldn't be found or is unable to receive mail".  Obviously it could be me, but wanted to let you know.

Ray and friends,

Nevada Northern? Try these. Sorry for the low quality, but I was only about 15 years old at the time and just learning how to use a camera.

Kennecott Copper also used these cars at the nearby McGill concentrator, probably from the same as the NN cars. Note the footboards.

Yours Aye,

Very interesting photograph/car.  Were there other railroads that made similar modification to hopper cars?

Midland Terminal Ore Car identification

These cars are cut down from the NYC System version of the 1905 Common Design twin hopper. The build date of 9-10 suggests an origin in CCC&StL 75000-75499 built on AC&F Lot 5703.

Midland Terminal Ore Car identification

mmihalo763@...
 

From the mid 1930s on, the Midland Terminal RR of Colorado began building a collection of second hand steel hopper and gondola cars to replace their aged fleet of wood cars.   Among these cars were Ingoldsby Steel ore cars, likely from the Colorado & Southern that used them for iron ore movements from the Sunrise Mine in Wyoming, Rio Grande 36' GS drop bottom gondolas, Ralston steel drop bottom gondolas, and finally we come to this series of car.   Can anyone identify the possible origins of these cars?  They are reminiscent a cut down version of cars that were owned by the Nevada Northern.  Otherwise it looks like cars I've seen on the Copper Range, Tonopah & Tidewater and the Butte, Anaconda & Pacific.   These cars arrived in 1935 or so, and Mel McFarlands book on the line lists these cars as part of an order that came from the D&RGW for GS gons, which they very obviously aren't

Just realized the broadside photo didn’t come through.  Here is one from the side, and another with the shorter CB&Q car I did a while ago.  Not the HO 1’ height difference I wanted, but there is a difference.

Yes, it was letters mostly with the Smokebox Graphics, plus Rs are from Ted’s set that you sent Craig.  Its fun having the correct Rs!  Thanks again for your help making this model happen!

It's been quite a while since I wrote about this model, but was able to get it painted and decaled recently.   It isn’t as exacting a model as one would get from a Speedwitch kit, but made good use of one of my Accurail kits.  I relied heavily on info provided by Craig Wilson and the great coverage on the Ann Arbor fleet found in Rob Adams article in Prototype Railroad Modelling volume two from Speedwitch.
