Re: There's the OMI Wabash steel dd car...eh NOT

Fred Jansz
 

Thank you Ben! It's a 76000-series car indeed.
According to BT, OMI made a few variations, probably the previous owner grabbed the wrong box.
Now let's see if I can score that steel dd car too!

Among them, a styrene version of the ATSF Bx 11 — Bx 13 single sheathed box car series.

Now that would be a winner!

Are these supposed to be downloadable so they can be printed if desired? If so that does not seem to be working.

This 'wooden' ss beauty was in the box.
It reminds me of something, but not a steel Wabash dd car.
Any idea what it might be?

Notes from Chet French, posted on the Steam Era Freight Cars website:
" In 1941, the Wabash converted 239 of the 46000 series auto cars to 6' door cars and numbered them 76000-76238.  The roster showed 93 car remaining as of July 1, 1957.  They looked similar to the 74000 series 6' door cars converted from the 40000 series auto cars."

Boxcar With Roof Hatches

I've seen a few photos of boxcars with roof hatches for loading such commodities as aluminum dross, cement, various clays, lime and spent grain.

All of the photos I've seen are associated with shippers in the Southeast and Midwest.

Would such boxcars have served shippers in the Southwest to any degree?

Thanks.

The CG cars didn’t get roof hatches till after the 1963 takeover by Southern, well past the era of this group’s time era.

And the Central Vermont can be added to that list as well for a very small number of 40 ft. boxcars that had
roof hatches added for grain shipment.

Thanks for the hint Eric.
Not exactly the same car, but will do fine I suppose.

Re: Boxcar With Roof Hatches

Edited

And Fred adds to that the WP 26001-26125 series of cars, with either 2 or 4 roof hatches. Ran from US Gypsum plant's exchange in Gerlach NV to San Fransisco. So not to the Southeast I'm afraid. (© Picture N.Holmes)

Sources of magnet wire in small quantities include:
Motors with the magic smoke escaped.
That switch machine that just quit working.
Any kind of electric coil at the bottom of your junk box.
Most of these are available at LOW cost.
