Jim,

Well, it depends on what you mean "close". I'll admit that I built one
kit according to the instructions, painted it black, used Champ's UTLX
decals, and used it to test weathing methods. In all likelihood, it will
show up in my tank car trains for my fellow tank car fans to try to spot.
Of course, I'll only ask AFTER the train rolls by if they noticed anything
<VBG - the infamous Mike Brock boxcar test!>. If you pay attention to
tank car details it jumps out at you as being the oddball. Of course, as
I noted, the tank can be used for the USG-A car bash and the frame for a
NATX bash so those parts are "close", just to different cars!!!!

Bruce

FYI - During the late 50's, I walked a little over a
mile to high school. My daily walk took me along
Gibson Yard in Hammond to Columbia Ave, which was
located at the west end of Gibson yard. I remember in
the late 50's seeing dirty old white wood MDT reefers,
whole strings of them. Mixed in were orange/yellow
cars. By 1960, never saw a white reefer again.

Re: Roofs on MEC single-sheathed boxcars

Have you looked at Railmodel Journal, Feb 1993?

Does anyone know what kind of roof was applied to the following series
of Maine Central single-sheathed boxcars:

MEC 35001-35300
MEC 35652-35901

Thanks,

Folks,
I need some good photos of a N&W class F2 pulpwood car. Anybody
have any that they can scan or make copies of? I need them for
modeling purposes! Are there any drawing of this car available?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Bruce,

Could you perhaps expand your list to include non-riveted cars? I
am aware of cars by Red Caboose and Atlas in HO, and I suspect there are
others that I've missed.

Arnold,

No!!! <VBG> Alas, as far as we can tell it does not represent any
tank car ever built. This is unfortunate, since the kit itself is
very nicely done. For those of us who have the Tichy kits, the tank
can be used as kitbash material with the Intermountain type 27
underframe to create a USG-A WWII era war emergency tank car. In
addition, it is possible to use the frames from this kit for an NATX
kitbash.

Re: UTLX Decals.

jaley <jaley@...>
 

Hi Arnold,

Sadly, these are not correct for UTLX either. I believe you can
search the archives for "Tichy" and "Tank" and get a full explanation of
these nicely-tooled but inaccurate cars.

Re: UTLX Decals.

Arnold, they are wonderful kits of a non-existent prototype, and as
such they are not correct for any reporting mark, including UTLX. So
go ahead and letter them any way you like!

What interests me is the profusion of stock cars, not something with which one might ordinarily associate this penultimate purpose-built coal hauler. In all, a fascinating railroad.

Re: can't open the Sinclair Consolidated Oil image

Gatwood, Elden <Elden.Gatwood@...>
 

Ed;
I had to delete all sorts of spaces and ">" to get the right link.
There is also a question make at the end of the first string, that did
not paste properly.

My eyesight may be bad, but these tanks mainly appear to be SDRX cars,
but the interesting thing is how many are either radial course, or 4
horizontal course cars. There appear to be both AC&F and GATC-produced
cars in this shot.

I think Ed Kaminiski's great AQC&F tank car book contains at least one
photo of an early Sinclair car, with that white band around the dome. I
can't say I have seen them elsewhere, but I did not get to look through
all the pics.

Besides the two-dome car already noted, I am curious about the white

on the adjacent track might be for.

Interesting photo! Did anyone else note that the cars do not
appear to be loaded with coal? I wonder what the story was?

Elden Gatwood
Elden, why do you think that's not coal? I mean, it's not nice shiny black diamonds, but OTOH, a
lot of coal was essentially 'combustible dirt.'
