What is the purported advantage of this over conventional CA glues for bonding resin?

I spent a bit of time downstairs this evening, for the first time in
sometime to be honest. Anyhow, as I indicted earlier, I went to Home Depot
and purchased the Loctite Plastic Bonding System and found it to be a very
easy to use product. I worked on a caboose and a mechanical reefer, both by
WrightTRAK, and it worked well on both of these cars. I used the activator
first, as directed to and then the glue. Worked great resulting in nice
tight bonds. How these hold up over time is a whole different subject. For
the price, 3.98 at the local store, you almost can't go wrong. Even is this
didn’t work on resin freight cars I am sure that there would be a 1,000,001
uses around the house. I also, as stated, picked up Gorilla Super Glue. I
did NOT try that tonight and as such cant report on it. Overall I was happy
with the Loctite product and am anxious to see how it holds up over time.

I use Gorilla Glue around the house, a lot...They have a Gorilla Super Glue now...There is a difference. I do intend on trying the GSG on a resin freight car model to see how it work with regard to bonding ability.

Denis,
Watch out for the Gorilla Glue. It expands with just the atmospheric
moisture. Please DON'T use it for model building!!!! Works good to hold
chair legs together on kitchen sets.

Bill,

Do you have a direct link to the data base you're using? The LOC is so large, I just want to ensure I'm looking in the correct place. Also, where are the industries information located? Thank you,

I think it is a worthy suggestion to create a data base of photos from the LofC photo collection. I do think it is important to know that this may be a moving target. From my visits to their web archives they continue to expand both what is there and what is available as a high resolution image.

Also for those researching various industries related to railroading, their collection is a gold mine. For example there are many images related to agriculture: planting, harvesting, preparation, shipping, wholesaling and retailing of perishable produce for example.

There are also some small collections that can only be seen on the premises. For example there is such a collection from the a AAR.

The ability to walk down the street from my office and spend the occasional long lunch at the LOC almost makes the commute tolerable. Problem is I get so engrossed in the Map Reading Room that I don't get to the photo library often enough.

For those who don't live around here, DC is easy to get into and out of, and is well worth the trip to conduct focused research.

Regular Loctite super glue is 01-30063. Yes, for what I had to pay for cyanopoxy I was less than satisfied with it (despite the claim it's used for the space shuttle's ceramic tiles). The Gorilla glue is supposed to be a more flexible super glue formula, but again I was underwhelmed. Shelf life is less and I can't find the flexible part to be any different. So still I use the Loctite super glue the most.

Re: Focus on Freight Cars Volume Two

Thank you for your comments Richard. Only after sending did I connect dots and realize the series uses images mainly taken in the LA area in the mid-1930s. There was little reason for a direct ventilated car shipment of Georgia or Florida produce to southern California.

The collection presented in both volumes is remarkable in quality and coverage and I thank you for your efforts in the presentation and historical documentation. As a modeler of 1926, I learned much from the books and understand there is still much more to discover and share.

Eric, your first surmise is correct. Bear in mind that almost all of
the images in FFC II are from a collection photographed in the Los
Angeles area in the mid-to-late 1930s. These were supplemented by a
few other high quality images from the same time period obtained from
other sources. However, good photos of freight cars dating from the
1930s are few and far between; only a very few photographers began
shooting freight car images that early (e.g., W. C. Whittaker, Paul
Darrell, Otto Perry), and they were mostly located in the western U.
S. where such cars as ventilated box cars rarely made an appearance.
We're fortunate to have the images we do. As to what may be included
in future FFC volumes, if any, that has yet to be discussed, but it's
unlikely that the cars whose absence you lament will appear there
unless another unknown lode of '30s photos materializes, which now
seems unlikely.

Re: Hand Brake terminology (was MTH USRA 55-ton twin hoppers)

Randy Hammill
 

Oops. I forgot about the door beams. Yes, I have to admit that it was I who installed them. It was a few years ago when I got back into the hobby and knew nothing about prototype modeling, much less how to assemble even a basic model. As can be seen, it has since become a practice model for removing the molded on details.

Thanks for the info about the brake as well. My skills on removing detail are not that great, so I'll continue to practice them since it appears that for my era the Accurail hoppers remain the best option. I also will eventually attempt to dissassemble and strip the MTH one as well.

In any event, thanks for everybody's input on the MTH hoppers. From what I gather from the responses so far:

The MTH hopper (in the five schemes that are for roads that actually received them) is an accurate model with good fidelity for pre-depression era modelers.

Beyond that era, they will need to be stripped and relettered at the very least. So far I don't recall a response as to how long any of these might have continued to use the K-series brakes. I'm guessing the some probably did so through the early 40's, but that's pure speculation on my part.


Thanks again!

Sure. Accurail tooled it for their USRA twin a number of years ago. Then, after several years and numerous complaints that the lever was too small to handle and was easy to lose, we added the lever detail to the body cavity, so the hand brake lever is molded on. However, the original is still on the detail sprue, although QC no longer cares if it fills completely or not.

By the way, you should assemble the hopper door beams correctly on your Accurail hoppers before you post pix of them.

Reefer Crop at A.C.F.

Steve Vallee
 

Dear Group...

I was going through my library of old Railroad Magazines and came across an interesting article about REA reefers that I wanted to share with you. It comes from the June 1948 issue. Hope you enjoy it:

Reefer Crop at A.C.F.

Fast Freight has a new look and a newer schedule, when shipped via the green-banded, red-striped fleet of "SILVER REEFERS". Topping the record of the B&O "SENTINEL" and New York Central "PACEMAKER" services, the Railway Express Agency is now offering its shippers not only the most recent car designs for safe loading and transport, but also passenger train timecards for their perishables. The firm has been spending $7,500,000 at American Car & Foundry to add 500 streamliners to its pool of 1,800 refrigerator cars. And by March 1st, 350 of those ordered for this fleet had been delivered.

Successfully tested for carting payloads of 57,800 pounds at speeds between 85 and 100 miles an hour, the "REX SILVER REEFERS" looked good to both the new owner and his clients. While constructed primarily for hauling perishable crops, the car could double as a standard merchandise express once its ice bunkers had been swung back out of the way. This change not only added to its versatility as a revenue runner, but upped its capacity by eight lineal feet of additional storage space.

Below its aluminum paint, the car structure is high tensile, low alloy steel. Insulated against outside weather conditions, the unit can maintain above-freezing temperatures when desired, by the use of hot water heating plants. The passenger trucks are equipped with Timken rolling bearings to keep the car in step with the high-speed passenger coaches to which it will be coupled. In line with stream-
lined specifications, ACF has built in a Mangus hotbox alarm. This, to our knowledge, is one of the first times this protection was installed for freight service.

The alarm is a double-check system. Two cartridges are placed in a recess above the roller bearings. When the temperature of the bearings reaches 150 degrees Fahrenheit, the first cartridge blows off, emitting a thick dead-white smoke. Almost simultaneously--and at the same temperature--the second cartridge explodes, loosing a terrific oder. So if the trainmen should miss the smoke signal, they are bound to be warned by the accompanying stench.

Boosting the trend away from flat-wheeled, battered freights, Railway Express refuses to even classify its "SILVER REEFERS" under the usual heading of standard merchandise cars. They are "passenger train-equipped refrigerator cars".


I'm just sorry that I can't scan any of the photos that accompany the article. They show the car being built from start to finish. The last photo shows REX #6101 in fresh paint.

Once again, I hope you like the article.

Steve Vallee

Subject: [STMFC] A great glue for resin kits

After struggling through many different adhesives, some of which left a
brittle joint, some a white film, some which didn't work at all; I have
found Loctite for plastics. Following the directions in the use of the
activator and glue will lead to great results, an invisible, super strong
joint. I'm done with expensive exotic glues as this can be found at Home
Depot for three bucks. If anyone here knows a hobby shop owner tell them to
stock this product.

This is indeed less expensive than the cyanopoxy glues and works well. The only shortcoming is the small tube runs out or dries up well before the activator. But I have found that just using the regular Loctite in the plastic bottle (which lasts much longer) works well with the activator also.

I have not used this glue for resin; but I know it works great for repairing
broken handrails made of engineering plastic. It's worth purchasing even if
that's your only use of it.
