Not a New Haven gon - too many ribs, panels too narrow, too tall.

Re: Accurail 41' gon

Solved.

Message 59648, of 31 Jan 2007.

A bit hard to find, but it's the message I remember.

Do today's messages add anything not in that one? I happily threw together, er, assembled, the ACL and GM&O ones. Don't remember why I didn't go for the CNW one -- maybe the LHS didn't have one or it wasn't out yet at the time I bought these. Anyway, I'm not here to build one of everything, I only need stuff that came to Kansas on the MoPac so probably the CNW would still be worthwhile.

Re: New Freight Car Model from Spring Mills Depot

From the spacing of the center sill beams, it appears to be a
sliding center-sill (cushion underframe) box car -- so it seems
likely to be a post-1960 box car.

SP Modoc Line Conductors train book 1936-37

sp1930s
 

Dear List,

I recently borrowed a SP Freight Conductor's Train Book from Tom Dill and
want to share it. The conductor's name was Partridge, the
location is on the S.P.'s Modoc Line mostly between Alturas and Wendel during
1936 and 1937. This is the line connecting S.P.'s Oregon operations to the
Overland route at Fernley Nevada.
This is the same conductor as the 1938 to 1939 book I added earlier.

You can find it in the photo section at:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/STMFC/photos/album/624993677/pic/list

This is the last of the three books I had access to. If more become available I will add them.

Enjoy

Add Georgia RR to the list of correct prototypes. ACL ordered 500 cars and diverted 100 cars of Lot 3618 to Georgia. The cars were built in September of 1951 to the ACL K-17 class specifications. Jerry Glow has a decal set too boot, albeit the cars were painted brown instead of black.

New Freight Car Model from Spring Mills Depot

rwitt_2000
 

Another "teaser" this time from Spring Mils Depot. I believe it will be
a freight car. I am not sure if it will be pre- or post-1960 era.

I am unfamiliar with the brake cylinder as illustrated in the partial
drawing posted on their web site: http://www.smd.cc/

"The time is near! SMD's very own first signature car is becoming a
reality.
Starting on 5/9/2011, we will be posting a new picture each day of our
car
that is currently on the way. Will you be able to tell what the car is
from
just one photo? Highly unlikely. We encourage you to visit our site each
day to obtain a new clue as to what it might be. We can say the car has
never been produced in brass, plastic, or resin before. We can say it
will
be available in HO scale and will be an RTR plastic car. Price is TBD.
When the test shots of the car arrive (soon), we will post actual
photos.
The test shots of the car should be available for viewing at the next
Great
Scale Model Train Show in Timonium, MD on June 25-26, 2011. We aren't
sure
where our tables will be at the show as we don't know if the show will
be in
the Exhibition Hall or the Four H Building."

Re: G-26 Mill Gondola

Thanks Rich and others,

I knew the ribs in the center area were different but I didn't have a clue about the ends. I can overlook a difference or two but the ends were the tipping point. So I'll dig out a tray of water and use the PRR decals. I do have several other PRR cars and I didn't want to overpower my roster with these speciality cars. Back in the 60's a similar mill gondola kit (wooden sticks mostly) was made by Regal Kits with the choice of several road name decals--PRR, Eric, MILW etc. which lead me to ponder the possibilities.

I would leave it as a Pennsy G-26, as for starters the ribs on the Milwaukee gon span the entire side while the G-26 only partially spans the sides towards the middle of the gon. Another detail is the ends are different, The Milwaukee gon has "flipped" dreadnaughts. I started building a Milwaukee mill gon using an Eastern Car Works AAR gon, construction still in progress. I began by removing the rivets and side stakes (ribs) and replacing them with Evergreen strips. The inspiration came from a gent building an N scale version featured in the May 2010 RMC.

Bob, I would second Jerry's suggestion that you go ahead and do it as a
Pennsy car. Pennsy had a huge fleet, and, besides, you can save
yourself the trouble of trying to modify a brass model...or painting it
for Milw when it wasn't exactly a Milw gon.

Quoting jerryglow@...:

OTOH there's little reason NOT to do it as PRR as the cars were well
traveled and PRR did serve major industrial areas. Remember, in our
era, everyone is a PRR modeler <g>

Since I'm a Milwaukee Road fan, I was wondering about lettering the
car for the Milwaukee's own 93500 to 93534 series of gons. Off hand I
see some differences in the vertical ribs, requiring major and
unwelcome surgery. The only photo I have is one published in
"Milwaukee Road Color Guide" by Dough Nighswonger, which shows a side
view. Is anyone aware of any other major differences between the two
cars that would further detract me from lettering this car for the
Milwaukee Road.

It is very good for the series P&WV had, 300 cars, numbers 7501-7799; 50-ton
cars. In fact, this car has the (unusual) correct end. Equipco handbrakes on
all.

Be aware, P&WV mixed wood floors with steel floors, in the series. Check
your ORERs.

The cars also had odd stepped bottom end grabs, and some had yellow-painted

Subject: [STMFC] Accurail 41' gon





OK, I did what I'm supposed to and went to the list archives and read
through a couple hundred posts that result from a search for the topic
I have in the subject line.

I was looking for a good listing of what roads the model accurately
represents, and what roads it is a "well, not spot on but not too bad"
model, and what are "Foobies." Accurail offers a long list of roads.

I did this a few days ago, and what I recall is that C&NW had gons
pretty close to this model. And there were a couple other candidates
for near miss models.

But did we ever establish the full list of "accurate for . . . ." roads?

If I managed to miss the summary post listing them all, please give me
the post number and I'll go quietly. But if not, can we do that?

The CN model is not accurate.

I'd have to check on T&P but include NKP and converted coke cars both of which I have decals for. There was an article in RMC on the NKP cars awhile back.

ACL, SCL (carry over into post merger), T&P, C of Ga (with minor work).
Don't know about others except that D&H isn't a match.

No, for C&O . . . 9 side-stakes vs. Accurail's 10 . . . and then the end panel combo's: w or w/o exteded or extentions.  Maybe I missed one series in a very quick look at 50-ton high-sided gons?
