Not sure if it was posted yet as where you can purchase Albion Metals, but I have seen them at CRM Hobbies in St louis. CRM had them on display at the 2015 RPM meet in Collinsville

Re: seeking reference: original specs: USRA 50 ton SS boxcar

riverman_vt@...
 

Rod,

    The best suggestion I can offer to you is to find a copy of the 1922 Car Builders
Cyclopedia and invest in it. In doing so you will have drawings and specification for
the USRA 40 ton double-sheathed boxcars, the 40 and 50 ton USRA single-sheathed 
cars that you seek, the 50 ton USRA all steel boxcar AND A BONUS in the CPR
variation of the USRA single-sheathed car with the grain hopper that initiated your
current research, 

   I am fortunate to have eight Car Builders Cyclopedias spaced out from 1919 to
1961 and believe I would be absolutely lost without them. I would love to fill out 
what I have with one from 1925 or 1928 but expect one will be found sooner or
later. I use them far more often than my half dozen Locobuilders Cycs. The 
Carbuilders Cycs. are worth their weight in gold, in my opinion, especially for
the era that folks like you and I model.

My best, Don Valentine

   Stocklist??? Perhaps it is a Left Coast term, Tony, as I'd never heard it before either.

Cordially, Don Valentine

Hi Rob,

You asked about "original specifications", that could mean a lot of different things.

TSC #9 "War and Standard Locomotives and Cars (1919)" has drawings for the underframe, side, end, and cross-section.

Does that help any?

I’m trying to save a little time – Can anyone on-list provide a reference (year, publication, page number) (I think 1917 Railway Age? or similar magazine) containing the original specifications of the USRA 50 ton SS boxcars?

Thanks in advance,

Rob Kirkham

Does anyone know of a model RR group that is oriented toward prototype RR loads and their modeling?

Can you point me to it?

Mike,

I seem to remember a Mont Switzer clinic at last year's Cocoa Beach meet on the subject.

Albion...another name for England.... The English and the Americans, people divided by a common language. Stockists are people who stock things and sell them there, just like suppliers supply things they warehouse here in the US.

If someone from England comes round to knock you up about carriages, don't buy infant formula, just open the door and talk to them about [steam era on this list] rail cars.

I think this has been established but . . . Greg, you wrote:

 

and the cars were delivered in freight car red

 

But they were painted black later on, right?  Has anybody established WHEN that color change happened??  And, if/when they were painted black, did the lettering remain the same, or was it changed?

Mark,

 

I need an extra set as wells so that makes six... LOL Not sure that will get the job done. We'll see what we can get done, Singer is a good dude and I might just have to pay for a piggy back on his next run.

 

My first car is awaiting decals. We had a little controversy over the original car color, some believed it to be Black and not freight car color like the 52'6" Greenville car.  John Greedy did a little more research beyond what has been done and the cars were delivered in freight car red just as Mont and I had painted our. Whew!

 

I still have to reproduce a maters for the car end as I had promised..., "all in good time my little pretty..."
