Martin called me on Tuesday and told me that they gave him a choice of having his surgery this past Thursday Jan. 14 but he would be the seventh surgery patient on that day or he could wait until Jan 21 and be first out on that day. He chose the latter, so he will have it on Thuesday morning. They told him he would be in the hospital 2-4 days.



Martin and Trisha have been at the factory making kits most days, except for the days he had doctor appointments, and Martin has even been teaching her how to do the casting because he won't be allowed to lift anything for 4-6 weeks after the sergury. Martin sounds fine and is in good sperits and looking forward to getting back to normal.

Re: American Cyanamid Car CYX 154 - Info Needed

Ed,



The company is listed with the CYX reporting marks in my January 1954 ORER.
I sent you a PDF of the page in a separate email.

Re: American Cyanamid Car CYX 154 - Info Needed

LOUIS WHITELEY <octoraro1@...>
 

The October 1948 ORER lists these CYX cars as "Special tank (A.A.R. Mech. Designation LO) cars . . . 151 to 157 iuclusive, 159 and 161.  Inside dimensions length 33 ft. 7 in. width 9 ft., height 12 ft. 3 in. (capacity 1,800 cubic ft., 140,000 pounds)".  There were some other series of LO cars with different dimensiont.

Subject: [STMFC] American Cyanamid Car CYX 154 - Info Needed

 
Folks,

While looking through a friends photo collection from the late 1930's I came across a car from the American Cyanamid company labeled for Nitrogen Products. The car number is CYX 154 and the photo was taken in Syracuse, NY on November 24, 1937. I could find no information for the CYX reporting mark in my 1955 ORER but the CYX mark was not retired until April 3, 1992. Any info on this car would be appreciated as it would be an interessting addition to my layout.

Some additional information on the car. It has no side doors but there is a full roof walk so I believe it to be some type of covered hopper. I have to question that though because there is no evidence of bottom gates either. It is the same height as an adjacent boxcar but the sides of the car are lower and partially cover the top of the trucks.

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

I spoke with Tricia Thursday. Martin is due for surgery next week. Prognosis is good, but let's remember any surgery at his age is a bit of a gamble. If Tricia's tone was anything to go by, there's nothing but positive thoughts in their household right now. With the exception of they'll never eat in Hazard, Kentucky again.
Tom, I'm sure I echo most everyone else in saying " Please tell us that the 07 date is a typo on your part."

List,

Since Richard Bale's report on Martin's status, I have some good news to report. Last Tuesday, I received my April '07 order which had been held up prior to Naperville and Martin's subsequent illness. My checks for my May and June orders were cashed just prior to and after Naperville and I expect that Martin has found a way to restart production.

My bank statement today (Friday) showed that my check for my July '07 order just cleared the bank on December 31st. So, apparently, Martin and Tricia have found a way to get things going again and that he is on the mend. I am looking forward to several more belated toy packages shortly.

that far behind in production?

HO Freight Car KITS

Andy Carlson
 

For those STMFC'ers who are in a winter time lament of the passing of kit building, I may have something of interest.

I have a large quantity of brand new, unopened HO freight car kits available to readers of this list. Besides multitudes of undecorated kits, included are many factory painted/lettered kits, many, if not most, long ago discontinued. All are priced well below MSRP, and the list is available from me at <midcentury@sbcglobal.net> off-list (PLEASE). Ask for the list in the subject line if it is convenient.

Included are Red Caboose, IMWX, Intermountain, Branchline Trains and a few other brands.

These kits are fresh, have never been on a hobby store shelf, and have no shelf wear, nor price stickers.

Thanks,
-Andy Carlson

Re: Cocoa Beach 2010 -

Add my name to the folks very happy with the 2010 meet.

Of the weather, it was nice on Wednesday when we got off the plane, even got to eat outside lunch and dinner that Wednesday, as we did later on Sunday at Fort Lauderdale and Monday and Tuesday at Miami. Even saw girls in bikinis on the beach at both places Monday and Tuesday which certainly made Saturday's rain seem so distant.
A nice even predictable climate controlled temperature is available once one is dead and buried six feet under. Until then - Vive la difference!

Thanks to all of you who braved airport security and brought
and displayed your models. If you brought models and no one commented, leave open the possibility that it was because we mere motals wonder how to achieve what we saw.
And thanks to presenters who showed us how to hone our skills. Every presentation I attended was helpful and well thought out.

My only suggestion would be to offer larger font colored
schedules like the prelim that was posted prior to the convention. Heck, I would even pay a dollar or two above the registration for
one of those.

Other than that, Very Well Done !!! to Mike, Jeff and the rest
of the crew.

BTW - Mike, my wife took a tour of your employer and said it was
most enjoyable.

Eh, what's that you say sonny boy?

Mike et al, so sorry I could not attend this year; it sounds like there were some great clinics. Would love to see pictures of Mike Rose's elevator complex and I've always been a big fan of harbor railroading. Damned hurt back ruined my Christmas and New Year; am still trying to get over it so I can get back to work on my RR.
