I have pre-1960 scans of WRX 9047, 9099, both leased to GB&W.
They are b/w so I can't say what the paint scheme is, but as
far as I know, GB&W cars only had gray sides.

Folks,

I'm trying to find out how I can order Intermountain Parts. I need
several sprues of the new HO scale FGE detail parts, especially the
ladders for several FGE and Nx reefer projects. I checked their web site
and the FGE parts are not listed. Does anyone know if they are available?

Re: (Un?)Loading lumber in 1906 post card on eBay

rwitt_2000 <rmwitt@...>
 

David,

I looked at the post card and there is nothing to associate it with
the NYC or any other railroad. Many of these ebay dealers are just
guessing about the content of their items. There is a B&O boxcar near
the foreground (the second car from the left) so it could be on the B&O.

The boxcars appear to be from a variety of railroads. I belive it is
a "saw mill" and they are loading lumber. It almost looks like "lumber
season" where they have requested any empty boxcar available to load
lumber to move it to market.

An interesting photo.

identified as New York Central lumber yard in 1906.
Given the rural location, it seems to me as likely that they are
loading at a sawmill as it does that they are unloading. Anyone know
anything more about this? Location? There are no clues on the postcard.

There could have been a repackaging of the contents in the area, and sales by retailers in smaller
quantities, could there not?

The Sunset Railway was operated in alternate five-year periods by ATSF and SP, so how you find it listed depends on which year you look at. Certainly since 1920 it had no rolling stock of its own, to the best of my knowledge.

Re: Tank Car Co. names beginning with Sun.

Just to muddy the waters... I have a 1957 slide of SRDX 2601
in Los Angeles, lettered for "D-X Sunray Oil Co" of Tulsa OK.

I have several 1960's photos of Sunoco tank cars in Texas but
that is past the STMFC era.

Couldn't specialized lubricating products be shipped across
the country in tank cars?

Tim O'Connor

Could it be Sun Oil Company, later Sunoco?
No. because the Sun Oil Co. was entirely an east coast operation (and
later midwestern, after it acquired DX). It had no offices in Los
Angeles, no western production facilities, and no wholesale or retail
operations in the western US.

Re: Tank Car Co. names beginning with Sun.

LOUIS WHITELEY <octoraro1@...>
 

The 1953 ORER lists Sunland Refining Corp. with reporting marks S.R.X. with only two ARA type II cars. The company was in Fresno.

Sunray Oil corporation with reporting marks S.U.Y.X. had 300 cars: 200 ICC105A300W pressurized cars (welded) and 100 ICC 103 tank cars, which could have been riveted. Sunray lists several home points, mostly in Oklahoma, but also Santa Maria, CA.

Neither company lists L.A. in this issue.

The Sunset Railway Company, previously mentioned I believe, was listed under ATSF and bills were directed to the treasurer in Los Angeles.

Hello ,
I've been trying to identify an early rivetted tank car that has only part of it's original company name left on it's upper side.The name as I can best make out begins with the word SUN in dark 8 to 10 inch Roman print and ends with the words OIL COMPANY in the same style.It appears as if the dome may have been silver and also the upper tank,as a little of the original paint exists on the tanks top surfaces.There is some smaller lettering stenciled on the cars lower sides ,which is approx. 3 to 4 inchs high and reads LOS ANGELIS while further along the cars side in similar print are the name CALIFORNIA.
With all the recent posts on Atlas tank car 105 lately and several mentions of California oil companies having the name SUN in them ,hopefully someone could help identify this one.

Sunray Oil, perhaps? Just at a blind-fire guess.

Slightly related, in that it is tank cars: I have a photo of a tank car
marked "Union Oil Co of Canada, Vancouver, BC", UOKX 10010. Did this have
anything to do with the Union Oil Co of California? I don't know the date
of the photo, but it is on archbar trucks. Does anyone have an idea around
what time this may have been? UOKX is not listed in 1953 ORER... was it
listed previously?



From _http://www.nakina.net/report.html_ (http://www.nakina.net/report.html)

UOKX = Union Oil of Canada LTD (Union Oil of California) 7/1930 - 7/1932
Union Oil of Canada 7/1937 - 1/1945
British American Oil 1/1946 - 1/1947

Re: Tank Car Co. names beginning with Sun.

The short answer is yes - it was the Canadian subsidiary of Union Oil of
California, active mostly in the 1930s and 1940s and its British Columbia
operation was closely intertwined with that of Imperial Oil (Esso etc)

A great resource for tracking reporting marks is run by Ian Cranstone at
http://www.nakina.net/report.html The listings for UOKX are at
http://www.nakina.net/reportu.html and show the following:
Thanks for that; answered a question on another tank car photo I have
(NSOX 328) - North Star Oil was absorbed into Shell Canada.

Is your photo at an accessible location? I'd be interested to have a close
look at it.
I can send you a copy if you want - I have digital copy from the original.
I've also got photos of the NSOX cars as mentioned, as well as several IOX
cars (2031, 4154, 4253, 4280, 6032), CGTX 63844 (?? number is hard to make
out), COBX 1986, EBAX 326, PQCX 104 and UTLX 228.

It was in the non-member store on the NMRA.org site but it is no longer
