Re: metal cars filler

O Fenton Wells
 

Maybe eBay and buy a replacement car if it’s that important to you. 
Or if you can get inside solder metal to the inside of the hole and fill the viewing side of the hole with bondo and sand and refill and repeat till it disappears 
Just my thoughts

Choosing a coupler for a item you plan to sell is tough. I refer Kadee scale head style. Others prefer the old standby #5. Some like to trim the trip wire, others like it. I forgot to add uncoupling levers so I'll paint the spring while I'm at it.

No. Any of the boxcar colors would work but Scalecoat CP boxcar brown/red is the best.

Hello,

 

Please, excuse the cross posting.  Would Tru-Color TCP113 CP Tuscan work for these models from Funaro?  Not a CP expert by any stretch.  

 

Thanks

I have a set of brass Chrysler trucks (Somewhere). I bought these years ago and forget who the importer was

they afre sprung and have faifrly complete brake detail.  They were not inexpensive American Models (not AMB)

has a vas.t listing of Overland parts. Yu might check their list if just to see what they look like.

Listers,

I found an undec BL HO 50'Plug Door Boxcar of the GARX persuasion at the W-S RPM meet. I have the Duryea underframe update covered (I think), but have been bamboozled in my search for the above mentioned trucks. I looked at Richard Hendrickson's works and even went on Shapeways. Anyone know if these trucks are available?

Guilty here, too. Couldn’t find any decent photos or coherent instructions on how this should look. Winged it.

Re: Sunday's ebay listing

 

That coupler spring "really stands out" because it has no paint on it. My couplers get a coat of rust paint which includes the spring. It also helps keep the spfing there instead of popping off into lala land. ~}

Re: Codes used on Rock Island waybills

Charlie Duckworth
 

There’s a couple scenarios that come to mind when the origin agent or waybill clerk adds junctions between roads.  Bills of Lading could have a ‘shippers route’ or an ‘agents route’.  A shippers route on a bills of lading contained the full routing with junctions between each road from the shipper (suggested by a railroad sales rep based on their portion of the freight divisions) and the railroad preparing the waybill was obligated to use what the shipper provided.  ‘Agent route’ bills of lading just provided the railroads with the junctions intentionally left off; forcing the station forces to determine junctions between roads.  In absence of a junction provided by the shipper,  the rule of thumb was to give your origin railroad the ‘long haul’ to the connecting road and leave the ‘foreign’ railroad junctions blank.  If you didn’t know as guessing to what junction was between two foreign roads could generate an accounting claim for a road being ‘short hauled’ if a wrong junction was picked.  Station auditors loved finding waybills where their road had been ‘short hauled’ so they could file for deprived revenue. This was especially complex preConrail days when you had multiple roads in the northeast with multiple interchange points.  

When the railroads developed the EDI 417 waybill in the late 1960’s the junctions naming convention was all standardized (which I realized is outside the scope of this group).

John Barry wrote:

Since the Rock and SP proper only had the single interchange point which happened to be at Tucumcari writing the routing as RI-SP was also unambigous, at least as long as the T&NO was about.

This is true, and one certainly sees waybills without junctions identified, doubtless on account of what John states. However, the waybill form clearly states “show each junction and carrier in route order,” so such bills are (officially) not following the rules.
