Nice one Fred.
The New Zealanders loved theirs too, the only 'armour' we had until
'43 (and wore them out till they fell apart I understand) and wire and

Re: paint removal

Rob & Bev Manley
 

Eric,
I have stripped my Stewart FTs for the 3rd time with brake fluid.
They were undecs originally and I've painted them with a Testore Model Master enamel mix first and lastly with Poly Scale Antique white.
The Antique White is real close to Genesis CB&Q Aluminum. At least to me.
The point is that it didn't fracture the Shell's plastic or the Evergreen Styrene plastic I used to fill the gaps in the dynamic hatch. I've had break fluid ruin some plastic and learned the hard way to NOT use it in an Ultrasonic unit. Some old AHM stuff turned into a horrible mess.
Always wear gloves, don't get it on your skin.
It won't blast that goop Walthers used on thier SP SW1 and some ot the newer painted engines or cars. I've had good luck with Branchline boxcars and Pullman cars. Some colors are harder to strip than others like the MEC yellow car, FC reds usually strip fine.
It will work good at first and deteriorate in strength if left open. I put mine in a tupperware type container.
Two things to remember. It's cheap and dangerous.
Remember, Model railroading is FUN
and dangerous.

Re: Stainless Steel Shipping

Allen Rueter <allen@...>
 

Keith,
Having worked in Cold Rolled Finishing at USS Gary works,
I can answer the 1st part, both (coil & sheet), it's up to the customer.

Some steel goes out naked, some oiled, some wrapped in heavy paper.

I can take a guess at the second part too, it's up to the customer,
if the customer only has an overhead crane, shipping in a box car
could be a problem for unloading.

Re: USRA Composite Gondolas

Justin Kahn
 

Yes, IM also made kits (as well as selling assembled ones) for them in O scale before the line was sold to Atlas; there are still quite a few for sale out there, particularly the unlettered ones.
That is the best way to go; otherwise, Walthers made a wood kit many years ago that doesn't look half-bad with a little care in assembly and some extra details, and WAY back, there was a set of aluminum castings for one in O scale (one just sold on ebay--the claim was that it was ScaleCraft, but I don't think so).

You didn't say which scale - Intermountain #41699 in HO; Intermountain
#61698/61699 in N. Listed stock numbers are undecorated kits.

Ben,

It was a deliberately scale neutral question, hoping for o or ho. :) Thanks.

No, he didn't. It's not a lacquer solvent; it won't attack
the styrene. It's not effective against some water base paints
or the notorious Kato paint which seems to resist most every
kind of dissolver.


Re: paint removal

Aidrian Bridgeman-Sutton <smokeandsteam@...>
 

Oven cleaner works best for Stewart models - put the shell in a ziplock
bag and squirt the cleaner into the bag. Leave overnight and the shell
comes out clean and shiny after a wash under running water and perhaps a
quick scrub with a toothbrush

Friends,

This is not strictly freight cars, but there is a builder's photo of a
General American Tank Corp. steam locomotive for sale through e-Bay. I
have bought quite a number of photos from the vendor, Jolene Alford, and
have been quite satisfied. Otherwise, I have no connection with the vendor.

No doubt this link will have to be reassembled:
