Today I received a flyer from Sunshine titled Naperville Introductions. The
new introductions are

NC&St.L XM-32 36' steel rebuilt boxcar
Circumferential rivet tanks
GN 2501 series plywood express boxcars
GM&O 35200 40' DD autocar
CRI&P covered hopper for silica sand, Mini-Kit
ATSF Bx-41,42,45,46,49 ARA rebuilds
D&RGW 15' door 10'8" IH auto/grain box
Fruehauf ribbed trailers
NKP, LV, ATSF piggyback flat Mini-Kits

Photos of some are included. There's also a 2nd flyer which is identical to
the ATSF convention flyer with the header changed.
The Naperville Introductions flyer can be viewed on my website on the Meets
page.

Question: Does anyone know what circumferential rivet tankcar will be sold?

The Barrett tank shown has five courses, and those look like AC&F tank mounts (if I have my spotting features right) ... *and* a Dixie Line rebuild? Wow, wish I could go.

True. However, when I mentioned "Cotton Compress", I meant the entire process from ginning to compressing to the processing of the seeds for oil and the byproduct of hulls/meal. The two facilities I am modeling, one in Elgin, Texas and the other in Austin did the whole operation.

And I was thinking of the Cotton Compress as a stand alone business. Columbia, SC is one location that I know of and there were several in Texas. Even though the cotton was in compressed bales from the gin, a cotton compress business had more powerful compresses and reduced the bale size by at least a third again.

A Cotton Compress was one of those businesses the usually had a "milling in transit" tariff.

Cotton seed oil was processed closer the the gins. Back 80 years ago many of the larger gins have a oil mill located near by. Today the oil mill business is more centralized and the cotton seed is sent to the mill. One modern mill warehouses cotton seed in Mississippi and does its processing in Texas.

X2011 West, the 2011 National Model Railroad Convention, will be held in
Sacramento, CA on July 3-9, 2011. The current registration fee for the
Convention is a very cheap $99! But that price will be available only until
September 1, 2011, after it will increase to $139. The Convention will
feature a full RPM meet, a number of freight car clinics, and an Advance
Section of layout tours in the San Francisco Bay area (including my own). To
register now, go to

www.x2011west.org/registration.html

The Convention committee apologizes for cross-postings to various groups but
we want to get the word out to as many modelers as possible before the cost
of registration increases.

Re: Cotton Seed Oil Tank Cars

IIRC there was an article in one of the journals on cottonseed oil and tank cars for it, within the past 5-10 years. This was a significant industry in east Texas back when. Now to remember where the article is ... the recently discontinued mrmag database was good for this kind of search.

Charles, any ICC 103 would be fine. SP made available some of its
tank cars for this purpose; doubtless lots of leased cars were so
employed also (GATX, SHPX, NATX, etc.), though in the steam era UTLX
not so likely. You could certainly use plain black cars with those
marks, with 8000-gallon cars probably the likely size. If you know of
cottonseed oil companies, you could research to see if they had their
own cars (I don't know of any, but haven't looked). If they leased
cars and painted their logo on them, you would need photos to find out.

Since the SP,LA&SL was owned 50 percent by UP, it is natural that PFE supplied refrigerator cars--once PFE came into existence in December, 1906. The SP,LA&SL was completed early in 1905, and from then until Harriman started buying reefers (ordered in late 1905) I would assume the existing Armour car contract in force on UP likewise would have been in force on the SP,LA&SL, but only for probably a year to a year and a half.
Eventually, of course, UP obtained Senator Clark's 50 percent also, and the line became a pure UP property.
