Re: six-panels per side on 40-foot box cars

Earl Tuson
 

Tom,

MY QUESTION is whether somewhere someone has written about these cars or created a list describing their roofs and side whether tabbed or continuous.
You can find the list of 12 panel AAR box cars that I compiled back in 2009 in the STMFC files area. I just uploaded the most recent revision that includes input from Staffan Ehnbohn and Ed Hawkins. Cars with straight side sills are noted, as are the roofs, doors, etc that were applied to each series.

The S scale pattern I have nearly done using your sides will be 10'6" with a straight side sill. As such, this makes it most appropriate for the D&RGW cars, but by cutting appropriate tabs into the sill, the other higher cars can be modeled as well. As for the other side of your car, I propose cutting it down to model 10' IH tabbed sill cars (GN, SP, T&NO.)

If my math is correct and the list is OK, there is a total of 558 cars.

Westwood also made kits for the PRR's Pennsylvania Limited cars.  Westerfield
produced a limited edition of the Pennsylvania Limited in resin.  MDC/Roundhouse
had the Pullman Palace line of injection molded cars -- a combine, sleeper,
diner, and observation, I think.

Does anyone have a source for early 20th century passenger car
equipment?

Frederick Freitas replied:

Riley,

LaBelle models has a good line of cars for your era.
There also were the Westwood kits that modeled the narrow vestibule cars
used on the original B&O Royal Blue Line. There may have been other
kits. The link below has some information about these kits. Just search
the HTML page for "Westwood". Long discontinued these occasionally
appear on eBay.

To add some freight cars content some of the B&O cars no doubt were
assigned to MofW or non-revenue service.

Re: six-panels per side on 40-foot box cars

Thomas Baker
 

I have seen photos showing box cars having six panels on each side of the door and having a continuous side below the floor rather than the more ubiquitous tabs.

I have also seen photos of box cars having six panels on each side of the door and having the customary tabs. Many of these cars seem to have been purchased by the SP and the ATSF.

I think most of them had the rectangular paneled roof, but some may have had the roof with diagonal panels.

MY QUESTION is whether somewhere someone has written about these cars or created a list describing their roofs and side whether tabbed or continuous.

I would appreciate any help anyone out there might be able to offer.

Tom

Interesting Frieght Car Collection for sale on eBay

One of the two Kadee founders is selling his entire collection, one of each of all the Kadee cars. http://cgi.ebay.com/Kadee-HO-Cars-COMPLETE-private-collection-/180601032070?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item2a0ca90d86

No bids yet but starts at $18,000. I didn't count how many cars but there is a link for a complete list there but I will put it here.

http://www.kadee.com/auction/photos/files/Carlist%20Release.htm


I have no afiliation with the seller and get nothing out of this. I just thought some of you folks would find it interesting. I wonder what the price will be some day when someone sells their entire completed resin freight car collection. (Granted selling them piece by piece would be more profitable.)

Were those DT&I "G31 clones" (9100-9299) painted originally in the
billboard
DT&I with small compass centered scheme, or did that come later?
Elden,
The cars had a circular DT&I emblem, which I believe was 27" in

STMFC,
Reading had 4 series of 52'-6" drop-end gondola cars (railroad
classes
GHH and GHJ) built in equal numbers (500 each) by Bethlehem Steel
Co.
or by the railroad in 1941-1942. The car no. series were
25900-25999,
26000-26099, 26100-26499, and 26500-26899. There was also a single
GHH
car numbered 27000 built by BSC in 1944. I have located just one
pre-1960 photograph of cars from these series, 25903 (obtained from

Rich Burg), which shows the use of drop ends having straight
corrugations like those used on the very similar B&O O-59 and O-59A

cars.

Can anyone confirm that all 1,000 of these RDG gondola cars had the

same original drop ends with straight corrugations? Also, is there
any
evidence that the original drop ends were ever replaced with
Dreadnaught or Improved Dreadnaught drop ends during the
1940s-1950s?

The identity of additional pre-1960 photo sources for cars in series

25900-26899 will also be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
