Group,

Does anyone know what type of running board is correct for a GN 12
panel 10'0" boxcar, like the intermountain kit???

Thanks,

Re: Carmer Cut Lever & Klasing Brake Lever

Rich,

IMHO Al Westerfield's Carmer cut lever from his USRA Single Sheathed
Box Car looks a whole bunch better than Martin Lofton's at Sunshine.
I emailed him one time about buying extras and he replied the guy who
made the masters retained the rights to the cut lever because he was
planning on marketing them himself. Haven't seen them yet. I use a
lot of that car on my (projected) layout and there's always one or two
usable extras which I keep for other uses<g>. Now if you need a bunch
of USRA SS boxes or know someone who does....

But would be nice if another player made both of these.

Re: Detail parts availability?

Walter M. Clark
 

Elden,

Precision Scale has an HO scale Miner Ideal lever handled brake
assembly in their Catalog #3. It says it's for tender/caboose so I'm
not sure it will meet your needs. I've had the catalog for at least
five or six years (maybe more) and the price for this is $2.50 ea.
It's part number HO-3567. I remember reading somewhere last year that
they've moved. Their website is http://www.precisionscaleco.com/

Does anyone on the list know of the availability of any of the following

1) Early Equipco brake wheel (the one with holes in the center

not triangular cut-outs)?

2) Lever handled brake assembly (other than the Ajax in the
P2K gon

3) Two-step,w/angled bottom step - stirrup steps?

4) Superior brake wheel?

5) Klasing (vertical) brake wheel? Any?

6) NICE 8-rung ladders?

7) Early (but long version) "pre-war" Y-town 7' door, in both the
raised splice joint and the depressed splice joint versions?

8) The above, but with the early center/bottom rocker handle?

9) 40' overhanging diagonal panel roof?

10) Straight-taper fixed Dreadnaught Gondola ends?



Oh, also, is Detail Associates still making all their parts, or just
certain
ones?



Thanks for any help!

Freight car researchers and modelers have lost a great resourse. Pat
O'Boyle passed away after a year long fight with a terminal Illness.

Pat founded Pacific Limited and imported some of the best researched
and finest built brass freight cars in O scale.

Those that knew Pat will regonize the importance of our loss. His
knowledge of FGE and freight cars in general was overwheliming. He was
hoping to finish his manuscript for his FGE book and was well along on
its completion. He also had plans to do other freight car books as well
but it was not to be. Hopefully his research materials and photo
collection can be saved and donated to an appropreate organization or
place.

I have lost a very good friend as has the hobby.

1.No leaves were applied earlier than 1943

3.The green leaf with tilted wafer serves all canada 1945-1954

5.the green leaf with tilted horiz wafer canada's largest railway
1945/1946
6.The noodle was post '61

The reweigh dates were not picked to be the earliest use but to hit
the maximum number of modelers. The car would not have been
repainted during a reweigh thus most white leaf cars were unchanged
(except for the reweigh) for 10 or more years after inital painting.

Frisco Tank Cars - Type 7

proto48er
 

Guys -

I need the help of a REAL Frisco historian here!

We are researching ACF Type 7 (MCB Class II) tank cars. Frisco
purchased 500 of these cars from ACF in two lots back in 1909. Each
lot consisted of 250 cars of 10,000 gallon capacity.

The first group were numbered #19075-#190324, and the second group
were numbered #190325-#190574. All were Frisco cars.

As of March of 1915, the first group contained 246 cars, and the
second contained 246 cars also. By September of 1919, the same
number series contained only 15 and 60 cars respectively! (69 of
these 75 cars were still on the roster in April of 1948).

Actual car numbers diminished as follows, for the first and second
number series respectively, as follows: 3/1915 - 246 and 246;
7/1916 - 238 and 236; 8/1917 - 137 and 141; and 1/1918 - 51 and 54.
By 9/1919, there were only 75 cars total left!

What happened to them? Wherever they went, they left the SL-SF in
substantial numbers between 7/1916 and 9/1919. Did they get
repossessed by the builder? Did they go to some on-line oil refinery?

I am NO expert on the breakup of the Frisco, but by examining ORER's,
they apparently did not go to the CRI&P, C&EI or GCL. I have all
four of Allhand's (he was the contractor who built the GCL and other
Frisco lines) books, but there were no clues in them as to what
happened to these cars.

I appreciate any help you can give on this matter. A manufacturer's
website will have some of this history, along with photos, soon!

I would disagree Tim. The lettering looks fine to my eyes. Also note
that the CN on the doors needs to be removed as this was not present
on the steel cars owned by CN.
