Train Order Boards

armprem
 

I suspect that most members of this list are interested in prototype
operation.The movement of trains with freight and passenger cars are
rigidly controlled by schedules.Several questions regarding train order
boards:How do they function in relation to the scheduled movements of
trains?Why are they so seldom modeled?Is there a source for a model of
one.Your feedback will be welcomed.Armand Premo


Fruit Growers Express Business Car

Hey guys!
New member, here...professional model builder, Mississippi Central (!
905-1967) fan.
I have a request to build an HO copy of the business car of the Fruit
Growers Express company. The recipient is an old gent named Durwood
Grubbs, who was a draftsman for the company in the early days in
Alexandria, VA. Have any ideas where I might find pics or info for this
car?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Midland Valley composite open hopper

proto48er
 

David -

These cars in AC&F lot #2605 also included (50) cars in Mo-Ill series
#6200-6249. I have no concrete information on the MV cars; however,
the N&W also had VERY SIMILAR triple composite hoppers of this design
built in this time frame, and models of these cars HAVE been imported
in "O" scale by PSC (#15693) as N&W class H-4. (I have never been in
HO, so do not know about it, but you might check with someone
knowledgable about PSC's HO offerings - sometimes they imported the
same model in both scales).

The MP cars had composite (wood) sides and floors when built. In the
early 1950's (out of my time frame of expertise), all the wood was
replaced with steel. (PSC imported these, too.) Later in the
1950's, a number of these cars received tight bays (like a covered
hopper in class LO) and tight roofs. They kept the original diagonal
bracing on the sides. In this configuration they were classed LO and
used to haul cement.

I measured a couple of the prototype MP hoppers years ago. When
the "O" scale PSC model was imported, it checked on all dimensions
with the MP cars; even the slope sheet angle from horizontal was
correct. If that model is available in HO, it would make life a lot
easier for you!

<Parenthetically, things are not always as they appear. The 70-ton
quad offset side hoppers on MP (and M-K-T, Erie, etc.) were found to
have a different angle of their slope sheets from horizontal when
compared to the B&O/C&O quad offset hoppers from the same builder at
the same date. This was only revealed by careful measurement of the
prototype cars!>

As for drawings, they may be in the 1943 CBC (it is at home and I am
not). I recall that my drawings were in an early "Eagle" of the
MPHS, long out of print.

David,
The 25 MV composite emergency 70-ton hopper cars were identical to the
1,200 cars built for MoPac. There exists a series of original AC&F
drawings for the cars at the Museum of Transportation in Kirkwood, Mo.
and copies can be made.

The general arrangement drawing number is 61-4944 and brake arrangement
is 61-4945. There are a number of other drawings of various steel
details such as underframe parts, side posts, and end parts.

Contact me off-list if you are interested.

Re: Very early intermodal cars - Clejan Spinecar available in N Scale

Peter Ness
 

Hi Peter,

You can feel a little less guilty about discussing the Clejan
TOFC's. The cars were originally designed and fabricated in 1955
(cars 18000-18001) for the New Haven RR. The production cars (18100-
18299) were assembled by the New Haven (Readville Shops) in 1956.
Due to the convergence of too many factors to list (but chief among
them the clumsy loading system for trailers on these cars, the
emergence of the TrailerTrain consortium and the advent of the ACF
Type 1 hitch), the cars were not well recieved and these same cars
were sold (or leased? - need someone with SP data here) to the
Southern Pacific.

The NHRHTA published an article on these cars in the Association
publication "Shoreliner" a decade or so ago. You can try contacting
them at nhrhta DOT org for assistance, failing that, contact me off
group if you are interested in historical background on these cars.

Hope this helps,

Here is the DS/SS/Steel split for box, auto, and ventilator cars in
interchange service for U.S. Class I railroads, from 1938 to 1950:

If anyone can identify the sheathing type for the above Unknowns
(double sheathed, single sheathed, steel, other), I would very much
appreciate having this information.

I am reminded that the TMW trucks are designed to take the Intermountain metal wheelsets, both the "Fat Wheel" or the semi-scale code 88 wheel.
