You should clear your cache and try it again (on the odd chance you were still using the page in your cache that still had the old code).

Yeah, they obviously haven't fixed anything. I had to leave the message up because I gave feedback based on the "we fixed it" email from Yahoo and put a link to the post in my feedback. Now I'm not finding any way to delete it, and my ability to delete posts on the Passenger Car List, which I own, also seems to have gone away. When Yahoo switched me to Neo, a little trash can icon that would pop up on every Passenger Car List post when I'd float the cursor over it.

Re: Disassembling Kadee 50-ft PS1 boxcar

Richard Dermody <ddermody@...>
 

Bill,

Disassembling Kadees pose no problem. The underframes are held to the bodies by 4 tabs, one on each side of each bolster. Spread the car side and release the underframe, there are no screws. The primary thing to watch for are the coupler rods and the brake line. Be sure to detach these from the underframe before removing the body.

The supports are a press fit and will just pull out, as do the pins for the roof walk.

The nice thing about the Kadees are that they're engineered for a press fit assembly. Works in reverse too!

Folks,



This is a classic case of being too general in the description of what one is looking for from prototype documentation -- i.e. please state if one is looking for a 50-ton or 70 -ton , ribbed-si de , offset-side, panel-side, and number of hopper bays, like center-clamshell, triple-saw-tooth, etc. to go with the extended Dreadnaught end-panels . This request has resulted in a review of available info and images showing that these cars in photos . . . but only documented from a distance in re venue service in large area (Armco Steel Ashland and Handley, WV) yard shots or closer-up in Cinder Se rvice livery .



Hopefully, somebody will have fun kit-bashing a USRA 70-ton hopper model into the requested mode configurationl.

SLSF hopper cars

Jared Harper
 

Since our house fire most of my railroad materials are packed up and inaccessible.&nbsp; I do have a Santa Fe Form 815 that lists cars through Hessdale and Eskridge from 1957-1972.&nbsp; This is past my May 1943 modeling era, but I am wondering if the SLSF hoppers that delivered a lot of coal to Eskridge might be older and still fit my era.&nbsp; The cars range in number from 88229-92886 in the book.&nbsp; Anyone have data on these cars?

Civil Engrg Wife,



I had bookcases on the second floor filled with books and 3-ring binders of photos that found a loadpath to floor-joist in the basement to crack it at a knot on tension-side.  Our f irst floor door-opening went paralleling to one side.  Had to jack-up the basement beam and sandwich in two good 2 x 12s on both sides of the cracked one.  I was then forced to also distribute my books (my wife had another name for my railroad- stuff) to multiple rooms.

One interesting outlier: 39 cars from the Montour.  Elden Gatwood theorizes that this indicates that the Rutland was buying company coal from the Pittsburgh area, which is supported by the large number of B&O, PRR, NYC, P&LE, and PMcK&Y cars.
 
The huge number of B&O and NYC cars makes modeling problematic - while "standard" cars (ex: USRA HM, AAR Offset twins and triples) have long been available for these roads, they actually make up a relatively small portion of these fleets, and there are many common car classes for both these roads that are simply not available (ex: B&O Class N-12 and subclasses, NYC "non-standard" offset twins).

Ben, it would be nice to know the DEC/JAN/FEB data -- coal
in small volumes is most likely to be consumed for heating
in the winter, and the only N&W cars listed here are in March
and October, which are colder months in Vermont -- but not the
coldest months! :-)

I assume this is all hopper car data we're looking at? If so,
what could have caused that burst of hopper cars in July?

Tim O'

Here's some more data pulled from shifting lists from Armand' collection for 1950:

Month/ # of days/ # of cars/ # of N&W hoppers

Mar 1950 7/ 62/ 1 (N&W 80753)
May 1950 1/ 3/ 0
June 1950 3/ 18/ 0
July 1950 22/ 143/ 0
Sept 1950 3/ 10/ 0
Oct 1950 18/ 181/ 2 (N&W 4867, 70839)
Nov 1950 28/ 244/ 0

Admittedly, a limited sample size (it's like looking through a straw); however, 3 cars

&quot;My copy of Classic Freight Cars Vol. 3 is a reefer book -- no box car on page 25.

I checked Vol. 1 as well. Can you check your reference?&quot;

Â&nbsp;

Trying to do too much at once today between getting boxes unpacked and organizing model projects.Â&nbsp; Correct reference is Henderson, Classic Freight Cars Volume 7: More 40 ft. Boxcars, page 25.

&quot;Did you check Mainline Modeler, July 1988? My notes only say it has an article on

DT&amp;I single sheathed USRA box cars.&quot;

Â&nbsp;

All of my Mainline Modelers are in storage, but I&#39;ll take a look next chance I get.
