Hi List Members,

 

While looking for something completely different, I stumbled upon this listing for BUDLONG PICKLE COMPANY in the 12-1930 ORER - see attached image

 

I don't recall anyone ever mentioning BUDLONG PICKLE in the recent discussion - 9 cars designation TW

Not even that: no reporting marks, not suitable for interchange.  It’s just a billboard!

As a piece of equipment normally run in passenger trains, It didn’t need those. Ever look at an REA car?

Based on the CM&StP box a few tracks to the left, this is in the era when truck centers were 5’-0” from the end of the car, vs. the later 5’-6”.

 

I don’t remember when that was changed?

 

As to the WAB car, metal roof with vertical seam caps?

Hurray l now know a nickel is 5 cents, and presumably a dime is 10 cents. 
Was pulp wood a by product of tree felling, or thinning: or was it a stand alone task where only pulp wood was cut? I assume pulp wood was destined for the paper industry.

Brian and friends,

Like most freight, loading pulpwood was the responsibility of the shipper, and some (probably many) small pulpwood operations were owner-operated companies where the boss was right there loading along with his employees. This is certainly one of those small operations, and I would not be surprised if the owner is one of the loaders.

A small freight car story from Virginia's Nelson & Albemarle Railroad: The N&A connected with the C&O at Warren, Virginia, where there was a tiny interchange yard. The C&O dropped pulpwood cars here for local farmers to load. C.W. Baber had an arrangement with the C&O agent for cars to be spotted in a particular place so he could bring his trucks alongside for convenient loading. When John Mayo, the N&A's engineer, rolled into Warren, he and his crew moved the pulpwood cars around for their convenience and left them scattered and the end of their work. So Baber confronted Mayo and asked for his cars to be returned to their original spot when the N&A crew was done. "Sure", Mayo replied, "but it will cost you a Co-cola for each of the crew." Coke at the general store by the depot was just a nickel in those days, so Baber figured 20 cents was a fair deal. To his surprise, Mayo opened a charge account in Babers's, and everytime he had a car to load (which might take him several work days), four cokes went on that account. But Mayo's promise was good, and Baber's cars was always left where his trucks could reach them.

The N&A also carried pulpwood in their own trains, particularly from Esmont, Virginia. In fact, the last train on 5 January 1963 was pulpwood cars. See attached photo.

Yours Aye,

Definitely NOT New York, NY as described by the seller. No PRR steam pulling PRR coaches on the east side of the Hudson River.

Bruce, I think you are referring to FrankforD Junction just before the Delair Bridge over the Delaware River.
