Sunshine Kits

Paul Koehler
 

All:

 

Yesterday while at the Whistle Stop in Pasadena I discovered that they had somewhere around 50 Sunshine kits for sale.  They are priced at either$50.00 or $60.00 each.  They are not on their web site so you will have to call for the numbers.  The usual disclaimer I have no financial interest in these kits or the store.

Um....the car clearly reads, "Built by Morris & Company, Chicago, IL." Just because it's in someone's Ralston file doesn't mean this is a Ralston product.

Also of note, the entire route of 850 miles was all IC so they got all the money to ship this load. I’ve seen a photo of  the interurban Charles City & Western moving a load of White(formerly Oliver) tractors to Marble Rock and the connection to the Rock Island to take North or South.

I haven't looked specifically at the WE boxcars, but Microscale has a nice C&NW boxcar set that covers most classes. I used it for my USRA rebuilt shake n take project.

This kind of reminds me of this post on the modelingthesp blog, but of course it's specific to one trip.

Does anyone know if any flatcar models or kits can be kitbashed into this car or other IC flatcars. I regularly see them in NYC freight consists on canadasouthern.com.

Oliver Tractor Shipment - IC 60968 in April 1951

Andy Laurent
 

Gents,

Link to a newsletter of the Oliver Corporation describing, in detailed narrative and photos across 5 pages, the shipment of 5 "Oliver 88" tractors from Charles City, IA to Memphis, TN in April 1951 using flatcar IC 60968. You may have to click the 'expand arrows' in the upper right corner of the image to see and scroll through the whole issue.


I have also attached the PDF to this message. Cheers!

Re: NP Banana Specials from Seattle to the Canadian Interior

Kemal Mumcu
 

As Mansell mentioned, the CP was the big interchange partner here but there was also the BC Electric which was an Interurban in the area. The CN wasn’t far away from Sumas and I think BCE and CP interchanged directly with CN in the area.


As for reefers, photos record many American reefers on the head end of many interior freight trains.  SFRD and PFE were the most common but I can’t recall seeing many NP reefers.  No idea where these reefers came from though, off the NP or the GN in Vancouver. 


I’ll have to check my small collection of Sumas photos and look for reefers.

PRR boxcar 559786 was wrecked on the Colorado & Southern on February 19, 1926. What class of boxcar was it? 

The C&S turned the wreckage into a flat car.

Re: Current form of Future Floor Wax Suitable for Decal Work

Indeed! I have used it with a brush to hide scratches from sanding or from a chisel blade. Multiple
layers can be applied if the first layer doesn't do the job.

I have never airbrushed Future, and I see no reason to take the time to do that.  I apply it where I intend to decal with a Q-tip, and then throw it away, i.e. no clean-up time or trouble.

That stuff is so thin when dry that you can make a wet puddle with it on a flat surface, and it will be totally smooth with no discernible thickness when dry.
Marvelous stuff.

It can be dissolved and removed with household ammonia, if needed.
