Re: GN end door box cars

Hi,

A car like this would have been built for a fairly
specific service. Were these cars for lumber, auto,
or some other service on the GN?
- Jim Betz

GN had 100 50' double door boxes with end doors: GN 35400-35499.

    Just for information I was able to get a IM Clinchfield hopper from my supplier.  IM had it in stock so apparently they still have some hoppers but how many and what road name/s I have no idea.

Re: putting groups on hold

Edward
 

Charles and all,

To change preferences for receiving Yahoo group messages, you need to be logged into Yahoo. Your groups should show up in a list at the left of the screen.


Open "Manage my Groups." Another full page list of your groups should appear. The right hand column shows the message preference you previously set for each group. 


Click on the shown preference and a drop down list will open for selecting a different preference. Each group will need to be changed individually. But having them all in a list makes it a bit less onerous. Select your changes and be sure they are confirmed.


I've found that no emails works best for me. I open a bookmarked URL for my Yahoo groups (copied and saved after you get your group list to open).

No huge piles of messages coming in via email now.


Reading group 'Conversations'  (as they are now called) on site is a bit trickier than it was before. However such is the substance of 'progress' at times.

I have just been drooling over this car. It has been executed VERY nicely. I love the interior detailing, and the delicacy of the grabs and end details. Kudos to all that have contributed data and photos for IM to work with!

I have been seeing all the discussion going on, on the B&O list, on the ex-C&O cars that went to the B&O, but I was wondering if any of you know if IM intends on doing other variants, for other roads, that aren't on the current list?

I am especially interested in the later versions of the C&O, Erie, Montour (i.e., "MTR"), Shawmut, and P&WV cars. Did any of you send IM photos for those?

Elden,
I echo your comments about the new InterMountain A.M.C. (nee AAR Alternate Standard) hopper car models. In my view the models are exquisite and true to the prototype drawings from which they were derived. Thus far IM has released 16 models having 5 end variants.

After receiving some models on Saturday and taking a look at them, I applaud InterMountain's work and everyone involved in producing the models. The IM product designer did a fantastic job with a very high degree of attention to detail, and the Chinese producer has done an outstanding job executing the design with the tooling, injection molding, assembly, painting, lettering, and packaging. The overall workmanship is exceptional.

In answer to your question about other variants, announcements of any other variants or other lettering schemes must come directly from InterMountain. I know IM has a large number of builder's photos and in-service photos to use for future considerations.

Ed Hawkins

No.  Mitchells was still open when I left the Philly area and moved down to Florida.  I think they were selling off a lot of their stock by then and planning to close the store.

>I cleaned out all the detail parts from a hobby shop in Delaware that was closing in the late 1980's for $100 (also got about 50 sets of MicroScale, Herald King and Champ decals).

I built the end-door 40’ auto car (RI-1) a few years back.

 

From memory, my car arrived within about 2 months (including a flight across the Pond). I found Ron easy to deal with, prompt responses to emails and happy to sort international shipping for me.

 

Castings were crisp and accurate and went together well. It’s a flat kit, I think the only bit I was unsure of was the precise end door/sides alignment being unclear in the instructions, but quickly resolved by a look at the completed model on the RE website.

 

Decals were good, with decent photos/diagrams to show placement.

 

I’d put the kit on a par with the Sunshine flat kits I’ve built.

CB&Q Class XA-14C and XA-14D 50 ft. auto boxcars were single sheathed cars with end doors. these cars were available from Sunshine Models, but they are probably out of stock by now. CB&Q XA-15B were steel boxcars with end doors. Walthers P2K offered a kit for the XA-15B. All of these cars were on ORERs through the cutoff date for this list.

Thanks again.  I looked in the Kaminski book when I got home and I found the builder's photo on p. 66.  Is that what you were referring to?  It's the same car, but a different photo, and a different paint scheme.  The Fort Collins library photo is an in-service photo with billboard DIAMOND lettering.  Cool to see the different schemes. I think this will take you to the Fort Collins shot.  It is printed backwards, by the way (REDRUM - no, wait, that's not it.  DNOMAID, yeah, that's it):

Richard,
COSX 975 was one of 2 cars built 10-23 by ACF (lot 9643), series 975-976, 50 tons, 3 compartment, 10,000 gallons, ARA Spec. III. I believe the cars later went to SDRX.

I'm building 18 Sunshine stock car received in 2012. All of these kits contained brown AB brake castings on semi-circular spures, and Bowser was molded on the flat side of the sprues. I have identical castings molded in black plastic from other kits, and Bowser is also molded into the flat side of those sprues.

The photo shows the reservoir near the truck on the "B' end of the car. Regretfully the other brake components do not show up in the photo. Normally the brake reservoir is just opposite the triple valve. I would appreciate any help in locating the other brake components and piping on this car."

Also, the list is set to strip attachments, so we have no idea what you are asking for.
