OK, is there an opinion as to where would be the best place to post these so as to keep them around and useful for those wanting them? Is the Fallen Flags location a good place? Accessible to the most people?

Bob,

The diversity of owners among boxcars in your 1959 Oakland pics should not be unusual on account of them being reloading on foreign roads for destinations on other foreign roads. Since both Swift & Wilson had meat distribution points in the Oakland area, there should be nothing unusual about their reefers being present there. What were the reporting marks of the MobilGas tank car? Mobil was in the process of increasing their fleet in 1959 while reducing the number of tanks that they were leasing from UTLX.

Bob, I'd be inserested in seeing the B&LE car, once you take away their hoppers and gons their freight car fleet wasn't that big, so I am interested to see what made it to oakland.

Clover House

Bill Lane <billlane@...>
 

Hi All,

I have been asked to repost this to more of my train lists. It originally
was posted this morning on
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Railway_Decal_Express_Agency

So here goes:

Hi All,

Russ Clover wants to sell out NOW. I talked to him when I placed a large
"get it while I can" order a few months ago. His health is declining. They
are the only company the makes PRSL stuff in S Scale.

It is a wonderful company, but I think it will be a tough sell to a new
owner since the majority of the dry transfer sets are for the 1900s era.

If you have wanted to order from them I would not wait much longer. I am not
saying they are going out of business any time soon, but reread the first
line. If the company does get sold the set prices will most likely go up as
well.

http://www.cloverhouse.com There is no on line or even phone orders. All
orders are placed through the mail on their order form only. They ship
quickly though. Their catalog is a reference in itself.

Thank You,
Bill Lane

Re: F&C Pennsy GR gon sits too low? Or couplers?

I just finished my F&C GR gon, and the couplers sit lowest I have ever seen. I used archbars to represent my early time period (pre-
WWII), and Walthers archbars at that. The couplers are McHenry scale couplers in Kadee boxes (I had a few left over...) Is this a matter of shimming the bolsters, or using different (offset head) couplers? I might do both... unless you think those trucks sit especially low... I don't want the car too sit too high above the wheels, unless that's the way it should be. This was a poor choice for a first resin kit, I have finished a few other resin kits since then, including F&C! Their instructions have improved since this kit, to be fair. Dean Payne
Low flying couplers are common enough. The right way to fix them is first to determine to proper height of the car itself. From protoype plans or photos find the distance from the sill to the rail heads. If the model is low, check the wheelsize and if that is OK, shim the body up to the proper height. Then check coupler height and use an offset coupler head if necessary.
That said, I don't usually go to that much trouble. The legacy Athearn cars all have low couplers and I routinely put a couple of #6 flat washers under the trucks to get a #5 (no offset) Kadee to ride at the proper height.
