B&O had two major types of gondola containers, LCL and flow type.


- B&O had 50 O-27a gondolas (USRA clones) fitted up for LCL service.
These containers spanned the entire car. The B&O clearance diagram
calls out 11 cars, perhaps this was never updated to 50. These
containers were withdrawn from service about 1938 and scrapped, and
the gondolas returned to general service.

- B&O had many more O-27ba gondolas equipped with flow type
Youngstown containers. I think 11 containers would fit in an O-27ba.
These were mainly based out of Brunswick, Md., made available to
nearby quarries and used in dolomite service. These containers
allowed steel mills to position dolomite around the mill floor with a
crane in small quantities, rather than be equipped to break bulk with
a hopper full (well, half full, dolamite was heavy). These containers
lasted a long time in service, and other gondola classes were also so
equipped.


B&O O-27b and O-27ba gondolas were B&O's first long gondolas, yet they
were only 50' long, not 52'-6" long. There is nothing close in HO. Yet.

I have a scan of a B&O O-27a with LCL containers. Is that
different than the car you're talking about?

In an earlier message, someone mentioned how lucky we are to have the
container gons that were used to transport some of the lime and
dolomite based products. Us B&O modelers are NOT lucky. The 50 foot
B&O class O-27BA gons used by the B&O for container service are not
available and I do not know of a good kitbash candidate. Although
the class number might suggest the car is similar to the USRA gons
offered by Westerfield, the car is 5 ft longer and much different in
apperance. (Hint! Hint! Hint! to kit manufacturers)


Re: FGEX wood reefers from Accurail kits?

Hello Ben
Could I ask if someone has that handout if "I could buy a copy of their handout". Really, if someone knows how to get a hold of something with the measurements of some of th e FGEX cars, I'd pay for that.
I've got a good many photos of these cars being loaded and each car "looks" the same height but the doors look shorter on some. I can't tell if that is a trait of the truss-rod cars vs the steel frame cars are not. I've noticed that some also "seem" to have a facia board and some do not.
What makes my photos "ask" more questions than "answers" is that the shots aren't OF the cars themselfs. The photos are of the men and produce that's being loaded. (Hope you'll understand what I'm trying to say)??
No one shot has helped me really pick out enough information to feel comfortable in starting a string of the cars that I'd like to have.

I need so help from someone............
Thanks to everyone

The VGN was constructed between 1898 and 1907 to connect with the C&O
at Deepwater and the N&W at Matoaka, WV, to the south. The intention
was to play one off against the other with regard to rates. That

went east to Tidewater and across the river to connect with the NYC at

As a former railroad managment man, I think Tony's just made an important point. It's much easier to remember overall concepts of the operation than very specific facts.

Re: Steel Shipments; coil; sheet, etc.

Gatwood, Elden J SAD <Elden.J.Gatwood@...>
 

John;



Coiling thin steel sheet was a technology invented for the sole reason that
flat sheet had to be cut into relatively short sheets for shipment, and the
users (car and appliance makers) found it inconvenient and wasteful to have
to keep stopping the assembly lines to remove the too-short end of one sheet
and put in place a new sheet. Rolling it in long sheets allowed both better
quality control at the makers end, and less damage in transit,
hypothetically, because the edges of the sheet were not as exposed in a coil
(those at the "lead" still were, but you get the point). They began rolling
into coil, at first small coils, in the early 50's.



The trouble began with how to ship it. Initially, finished cold-rolled steel
sheet was strapped into a custom pallet, and put into a boxcar for weather
protection, or if shipped as unfinished hot strip, shipped open on its side
in the ends of a gon. Some shippers had cold-rolled finished sheet coils
shipped on their sides and covered with canvas tarps. This lasted into 1955.



There are lots of good illustrations of this out there in the literature, and
drawings of how they secured it in various cars, in the AAR loading rules for
various dates. It is very interesting reading.



Coils shipped open in gons had custom-made cradles created to keep them from
rolling or toppling over and sliding, and knocking out car ends, which they
did (I have read correspondence on this). They would block the entire
interior of a gon, and made cradles out of heavy timbers to hold each coil in
place. Obviously, it got labor-intensive and expensive to do this for each
shipment, and given you were not using dedicated cars, the end user or the
railroad would toss out all the expensive blocking and they would have to
re-create it again for the next shipment.



In 1955 there was a flurry of design by NKP, PRR and others (I have some of
the patent paperwork), for dedicated steel shipment cars with
specially-designed blocking equipment semi-permanently installed that would
be back hauled empty. One of these was a "coil car" (a name that came
later). These consisted of gons or flats with cradles and covers. The gons
actually were designed to have skids inside that dissipated energy by sliding
across the rough floor, guided by guide timbers, with end bumpers to cushion
against end impacts. Erie and others used flats with rigid mounts. The gons
or flats could also be fitted with covers for weather protection. There was
a sizable fleet of "skid and cover" cars running around by 1957, and the PRR
had 310 by Oct 1956. They were in extremely high demand by that time by
USSteel, Bethlehem, J&L, and others, who made large steel coil expressly for
the automotive and appliance industries. Eventually, Erie, NKP, P&WV, NYC,
P&LE, PRR, B&O, B&LE, URR had skid and cover-equipped "coil cars". They
lasted into the 70's, but that is beyond our scope here.



The purpose-built "coil cars" of the mid-60's are also a later discussion.



There were also numerous gons fitted with three-piece Stanray covers, even
"Dutch Roof" covers, on roads like the RI and WP, the former over cradle
systems designed for either small coils or bundled sheet, the latter over
large coils. These were also very popular, and additional gons were always
being converted to meet demand. Some had their sides raised so they could
accommodate taller bundles or larger coils. WP, EJ&E, C&EI, PRR, B&O and NYC
had cars of this type, too.



Neither car took the place of box cars used in palletized coil shipment. The
PRR actually had a fleet of insulated X53's in coil service, and these are
still found today. They also had a number of X37A and X37B so equipped, but
for shipment of hot coil. These had double flooring and 24" steel sheet
riveted along the interior bottom of the sides and ends to keep the car
intact. Hot coil service was VERY hard on cars, as many NYC gons show. They
all served together.



No one has ever done a good model of the important skid and cover or roofed
steel shipment cars. ConCor tried, using their ubiquitous mill gon, with new
skids and covers, but they were very crude, and not really correct for any
one road. You could use any old box car for the latter.

Re: FGEX wood reefers from Accurail kits?

Miller, Andrew S. <asmiller@...>
 

And how do the rest of us get a copy? Do we all "put out a call"?

If Bill is monitoring this list, consider this a "call" and tell us all
how we can get your book.

regards,

Andy Miller

Albert and all,



Bill does monitor this list and I would suppose if you put out a call
(Internet calling) I would suppose he would reply. If no response I
could have him email you.

Hi All
How does one go about obtaining "The Wood Sheathed Car of the
FGEX/WFEX/BREX Freight Refrigerator Fleet"?
Thanks
