Folks,

Were Pullman Standard's Bow Tie roofs ever applied to their riveted box cars that were built just before the PS-1 welded box cars were introduced?

Thanks,

To reduce bit breakage, first, make sure the bit sticks out of the chuck twice the length of the flutes, second, lay off the scotch.....

Yes on the 1957 photograph. Looks like no on the 1971 photograph.

Extremely well done – car and elevator. Very realistic weathering.

Re: Roundhouse 50' SS DD

WILLIAM PARDIE
 

I am fortunate in that I have a set of Andy Carlson's cast sides for this car.  I got the castings as I am skillfully challenged when it comes to carving off ladders (Years ago when Richard Hendrickson was doing articles for the "Western /Southwestern prototype magazines I attempted to carve the side and end ladders off a Trains Miniaure refer.  After many unsuccessful hours of carving I abandoned the practice forever).

Andy has always been critical  of the deep board separations  This prompted him to do the castings.  I hope to get to.this project in this lifetime.

Has anyone found a good technique for filling in the overly thick "board" grooves ? Between that and carving off grabs, I've avoided this and many other plastic cars...

I've wondered if Mr. Hobby Surfacer would do the trick but have too many other tasks on the list ...

Somewhat off topic, but not entirely.  The writing No Wage Freeze dates this photo to the President Nixon-Ford years.  I remember it well along with WIN buttons.

Re: Roundhouse 50' SS DD / drilling holes problems

Todd Sullivan
 

Hi Ken,

When I am drilling holes in anything, I brace my drilling hand and/or the pin vise with my free hand.  I'm right handed, so I brace with my left by putting some fingers on a solid item (workbench or layout surface, usually), and having my index finger (usually) touching the pin vise or my right hand.  I also try to not put sideways pressure on the pin vise and drill bit, as that reduces the chance of the bit breaking.  It seems to be working, as I have had few broken bits over the past few months.

On one occasion, I broke three bits in rapid succession, do I put down the pin vise and had a serious talk with myself about improving my technique and being steadier.  My personal trip to my (virtual) woodshed worked, as I haven't broken another bit since.

I hope these suggestions help!
