And without looking it up, you know it’s not a large car because the trucks look big, probably 8000 gals. or less.

Bill Welch was a meticulous person and planned ahead so I have not asked because I just assume that
he gave them away or turned them over to someone else. His collection was extremely impressive by the
early 1990's - after he'd been modeling only for a few years - so I imagine the final collection was just
incredibly wonderful models. Wherever they ended up I hope they are well cared for. :-)

Bill's models, was Re: [RealSTMFC] Built-Up Resin Kits

It is my understanding from a couple of members of this list that Bill’s models are in good hands and are being inventoried. I do not know if they will make it onto a platform, such as eBay or Stouts’ Auction (where Frank Peacock’s collection was recently sold.)

Yes. 1-34 is the shop date but over on the right it looks like AC&F (or something xC&F)
and the number 1928 is clearly visible. I think the tank may have been built in 1928.

That “BUILT 1912” stencil seems wrong for the tank, but the frame does have the early “C” channel facing inward construction. My guess is that the tank was replaced, perhaps even 1-34,  given its construction.

According to Ian Cranstone’s reporting marks list, New England Alcohol used NEAX reporting marks from 1935 to 1947.

 

In a 1938 ORER they had a whopping total of 7 cars and by 1945 it had climbed to 9!

Hides Re: [URL Verdict: Neutral][Non-DoD Source] Re: [RealSTMFC] Hide Cars - perhaps not the last wood, however....

Jim Betz
 

Hi,
  My brother spent a lot of years in trucking - first as a driver and then as a dispatcher.
Smallish company with all flat bed trailers.  Once, while he was still driving he had a
container of hides as a priority haul from Portland to Vancouver, B.C. (had been delayed
a couple of weeks in the summer).  He got to the U.S.-Canada Border and the border
guy said "I have to check the load".  My brother had some idea of what would happen
so he got up and unsealed it and hopped down and said - go ahead and check.  The
border inspector hopped up and popped the doors open (center opening) and a 
bluish green "fog" came pouring out of the truck and flowed all over the parking area
where they did inspections.  He was able to avoid actually getting in the fog (border
guy did not) and they told him they couldn't inspect until the fog was gone ... and so
he had to park it way off to the side (as directed) and it sat for several hours before
they risked even going back to it long enough to peek inside.
  If you ever want to smuggle something across a border - putting it inside/under a
hide load would be a good method.  *G*
                                                                                       - Jim in the PNW
