How close is this model to the NYC prototype boxcar from 9-44?

Charlie, the car number, date built, and lot number all match.  Number series for that lot was 159000-159999, built by the Despatch Shops in East Rochester NY.  The only thing I’d be uncertain about is the black roof, but some NYC box cars built ca. 1944-’45 did have black roofs and if IM went to the trouble to paint the roof black it’s likely that they had prototype information to that effect.  The one photo I have of a car in that series is a B/W shot taken in ’56 and it’s sufficiently weathered that I can’t tell whether the roof was black.  I’ll send you a scan of that photo off-list.

I havent seen any in 10 years at least.  Worked on the tough jobs but the majority of factory paint will strip easily and safely with alcohol nowadays.  The glaring exception bring BLI.  Their paint is bullet proof.  Which would be ok, if they had painted their H2A hoppers black instead of gray.

Re: NKP 10000-10999 series boxcars

Ray Breyer
 

Hi Larry, 

Sorry; the NKP never rebuilt ANY of their short boxcars into all steel cars (double OR single sheathed). What you're probably seeing is a photo of a car with REALLY new sides and paint; that can sometimes make a wood-sided car LOOK like it's got steel sides.

These cars were built by ACF in 1916 to then-modern short boxcar standards: a large NYC-designed fishbelly underframe, Chicago-Cleveland steel roofs, and 7/7 "inward rib" Murphy ends. By the late 1920s, some of the cars were "refreshed" with Murphy roofs (that program was halted by the Depression, so only about half of the cars got new roofs). The last of the cars were removed from the revenue roster by the beginning of 1950, with something like 300 of the cars entering MOW service. None of the cars ever received AB brakes. One of the cars (actually identical sister ex-LE&W) is "preserved" at the Indiana Transportation Museum in Noblesville.

As for a model, there has never been one offered. Yet. Give me about a year, a little time at the workbench, and a little arm-twisting, and I'll see if I can't get Frank Hodina to release one in his new kit line. In the mean time, I'm using Roundhouse reefer cores, and my own decals and resin casts of 3D-printed inward 7/7 ends to get a "fleet builder" version of these cars. I've completed four of them so far, and have parts for another dozen.


Hope this helps!

Subject: RE: [STMFC] Intermountain's NKP Alt Std Hoppers

At some point in the recent past, I purchased several B&W photos from Jay
Williams and tonight I just happened to lay out the 3 side by side and note
the similarities. Two were different views of NKP 10000, a 36'03"steel
boxcar built 9-16. The sides were a 4-SD-4 configuration and the ends appear
to be 7/7 reverse Murphy-ribbed steel ends. I believe the car is a rebuild.

The 3rd photo was of NKP 10580, a 36'03" DS boxcar built 10-16 with a wooden
door and what appear to be 7/7 reverse Murphy-ribbed steel ends. Both cars
appear to have fishbelly center sills. One has a capacity of 2569 and the
other 2568. The wood car has a LT WT of 41600 lbs and a 80000 lb capacity,
the steel car has a LT WT of 42600 lbs and a 80000 lb capacity.

The July 1932 ORER lists the NKP 10000-10999 series as containing 979 cars
with a 2550 cuft and a 80000 lb capacity. The ORER indicates a steel
underframe, no mention whether wood or steel cars.

The January 1942 ORER lists the NKP 10000-10999 series as containing 559
cars with a 2569 cuft and a 80000 lb capacity. The ORER indicates a steel
underframe, no mention of steel cars.

It would appear that some of the 36'03"DS boxcars may have been rebuilt with
steel sides and possibly received different types of metal roofs. Does
anyone have any knowledge or information such as data sheets they'd be
willing to share on these cars, or any other photos of cars in the series
that you'd be willing to share? I'm hoping to find information on the types
of roofs, both new and old, and how many cars were rebuilt. Possibly NKP
10000 was the only one, but that seems uneconomical.

Looking forward to any info including whether a model was ever issued of
either car. Thanks and Merry Christmas to all.

Re: Intermountain's NKP Alt Std Hoppers

I'm curious about the re-building of "some" of the 33xxx cars to have flat-top ends.  How many of these cars had this conversion--a few, or all, or almost all, or "half"?  And was this all done right around 1959, or was it something that happened when the round-topped cars needed extensive rebuilding over a long time span?
