Hi, Gene. I found the date on their site, March 2011. The shop I do business with has also told me March, probably by the end of the month.

I find them on eBay with some regularity. With a little fussing they can be fair models but still not foreground quality in my opinion.

Someone mentioned Williams Bros. Are they shipping again?

Re: OT cars & trucks

Larry Wolohon
 

Greg's garage was from Saginaw, MI. I believe that roughly a year or 2 ago, he decided to go out of business for reason(s) unknown to me. I think that he sold mostly locally(in the SE Michigan area), as I would usually see him @ the Ann Arbor Train Show, the Gratiot Valley Train Shows & the Redford Model RR Club shows in for the past 10 or 15 years. I didn't know that he was in the Walther's Catalogs, at least there are no listing of Greg's Garage in my 2005 or 2007 Walthers catalogs. 



I always thought that he did a pretty decent job for a fairly decent price, $5.00/ a model which was painted. He also did some 4 door cars & some not so common autos.

Re: "MACHINERY LOADS FOR GONS" ARTICLE

Paul <buygone@...>
 

Bill:



In going through all of my AAR Rules books covering the "Loading of
Commodities On Open Top Cars" I find no mention of the covering or tarping
of the load. The rules are very specific as to how the load was to be
secured to the car. I would assume that after inspection by the "Railroad
Loading Inspector" the shipper could cover the load with tarps any way they
wanted to protect their product from the weather. One would assume that to
insure that the tarp stayed in place for the entire trip they were well
secured to the car.

That's true: There's no legal limitation on signing a ridiculous contract.

I wonder why these "cash cow" farmers don't realize that things aren't worth what you think they are, rather only what someone is willing to pay for them. They don't seem to be making much money sitting in a file cabinet.

Kurt,

I would remind you that if you do not control the copyright on
something, then the way to "control" it is by restricting access. Thus,
if the NYCHS decides that they wish to control access to a drawing that
they own, but for which they do not hold the copyright, they are well
within their rights to require that anyone aquiring copies from them
sign an agreement that requires the purchaser to do whatever NYCHS
dictates in order to gain access, including paying royalties on
subsequent models. The requirements detailed by Denis indicate that
someone or a group at the NYCSHS think that somehow the NYCSHS'
resources are a "cash cow" that should be milked.

OTOH, the PRRT&HS and the PRRT&HS Modeling Committee strive to assist
manufacturers to identify exactly those drawings that might be needed
for a given project and the PRRT&HS even offers a manufacturers
membership which provides discounted rates on access to drawings in the
society's collection. No royalty agreements are asked for and no
royalties are paid. Although the PRRT&HS does not request them, model
are sometimes provided by manufacturers to the PRRT&HS which then
raffles them at the annual meeting.

This is not a "red team" versus "green team" thing, as the PRRT&HS was
in the same situation as the NYCSHS 15-20 years ago, when modelers felt
decidedly unwelcome by the "powers that be". However, some members,
mostly younger modelers, stuck it out and gradually changed the focus of
the PRRT&HS to included modelers (in addition to employees and
historians) and the society is definitely the better for it. Hopefully
the NYCSHS can continue to make progress in a similar direction.

Re: Foreign Road Stock Cars (was Re: Pacemaker boxcar usageoff-line of NYC)

Folks,

Just a quick note on this subject to clarify. The original question
from Dave Evans was regarding WWII era stock trains. Most of the trains
cited below are post WWII, as are their schedules. Even the "Man O'war
cited by Dave is post WWII, iirc.

Greg,

According to 1952 freight car schedules, PRR was running the following
east bound livestock trains:

SW-8 rest and water at Columbus no stop Herr's Island

PH-10 lives stock block terminated Herr's Island

VL-6 live stock block terminated Herr's Island

NW-86 rest water feed Columbus no work Herr's Island

NW-88 rest water feed Columbus no work Herr's Island

WS-8 block 2 live stock terminate Herr's Island block 3 continue to
Enola without rest etc

FW-8 drop block at Herr;s Island pick-up rested live stock from VL-6,
PH-10, WS-8, PH-29 and previous day FW-8.

Looks like the only live stock train beyond Herr's Island that worked
Herr's Island was FW-8

So if wheel reports or consists of FW-8 can be located your question
should be answered.

SW-8, NW-86, NW-88 would need to show consists from Columbus.

I don't know what PH-29 is. It is not in the freight schedule and
should be an west bound or south bound train.

stock was

would the

I would think this would govern whether western road stock cars make it

Are there any era dependencies? I am modeling WWII.

did a little research on the rail miles (current no era specific) and
it shows
hat CHGO to Newark, NJ (not exactly the slaughter houses) show to be 898
miles
Greenville Docks, NJ is the same). If I do the math using 21 miles per
hour as
he rule (stock would/should move faster than manifest freight) then it
would
ake approximately 43 hours to make the move and would be outside the AAR
rules
nd thus the stock would have to be rested and feed at Herr Island, PA
Pittsburgh, PA). But AAR records show during the WW2 era that train
speeds were
igher than in most other eras. I believe when it comes to Herr Island
you have
o think in terms of first in first out...

ut in my era of the mid 50s photo evidence shows that (dare I say this)
most
ars returning west (great shots crossing the Rockville Bridge) were of
western
rigin, not all just most. One need only search the pages of the Don Ball
books
s well as the Don Wood's book to see that there was less than one would
expect
f home road cars. I have found good evidence that the UP cars held down
a
remendous amount of the business (related to car supply) and an
abnormally low
mount of PRR cars show up. I was inspired to do my Shake N Take UP
S-40-10 car
n DLS paint based on a photo in Don Wood's book taken on the Middle Div.

railing an L&N Mathers stock car, trailing a PRR Mountain headed west.
Then in

e (SPF's) all realize that this business supported the fledgling
Truc/Trailer
