I never log in to any web site via a third party. That's just asking for interference and problems.

But I haven't sold anything for over 18 months... I sure hope they haven't broken the service!
I have bought one or two items, and have not noticed any change.

ADMIN - this is not an eBay forum

Aley, Jeff A
 

Hi Folks,

 

               Ironically, someone asked me OFFLIST yesterday if it was okay to discuss eBay policies on RealSTMFC.  I told him NO, and he has kindly refrained.

 

               Now I see that others are bringing up eBay.  Sorry folks, our topic is Steam-Era Freight Cars.  We’re not here to talk about eBay (which could be used to buy or sell STMFC’s), nor the Post Office (which could be used to ship models) nor food (which feeds people who build models of STMFC’s), nor any other tangential topic.

 

Thanks for your cooperation.

Besides 2 days is BS in my opinion when I was getting paid in seconds when the buyer used pay pal which most did

Re: PRR boxcar lettering late 50s

mopacfirst
 

OK, got it.  I think there's a summary of the dates of adoption of those paint schemes on line, but what I was more interested in is whether there was an effort to repaint as many cars as possible, or if there was minimal repainting for other than, for instance, wreck repairs, during that late 50s period.

I have photo evidence of how the maintenance of freight cars went, for cars that were more at home in the midwest, but Pennsy cars were less common here so I didn't see that many or know of many that were photographed in Kansas.  I have a decent shot of PRR 605415, which I think is an X29L, on the MP in 1970.  Not quite sharp enough, or maybe my scan wasn't a high enough pixel count, to read the shop data.

Jim,

The details came directly from James Lane's original work in the Railway and Locomotive Historical Society’s “Railroad History, No. 128” published Spring 1973. This has been considered as a primary source for many years on this discussion list and predecessor lists.

According to the new eBay rules you should have the money paid into your bank account in two days. You need to contact eBay.

Re: New ebay ops

EBay, in my opinion, is trying to make money on the float.  You were requested to send your bank info so they would deposit the money to your bank in 2 days minus the selling fees.  I think it's a mistake and have been avoiding them since I got the email requesting I re-register with my bank account info.
Nope I will not give them that.

Re: [Non-DoD Source] [RealSTMFC] PRR boxcar lettering late 50s

Gatwood, Elden J SAD
 

Ron;

 

From my research, it looks to me that a majority of X26C and X29B were repainted into Shadow Key by the late fifties, beginning with the introduction of that scheme in 1954.  A few cars lingered on in Circle Key.

 

The first group of X29D that had earlier IDE were built in 1952, and had Circle Key as built, so some of these lingered.  The later group of X29D were built in 1955 so had Shadow Key lettering as rebuilt.

 

No Plain Key until 1960.

For the X26C and the X29B/X29D,  in the late 50s timeframe, what would the most common lettering scheme be?  I know what they were built with.

As 10 to 14 year old cars, were many of them repainted already into the PK scheme, or would many of them have been in decent condition in the SK schemes?  Would many of the X26C still have been in CK?

PK didn’t start until the 60’s so either CK or SK.
