B&O Modeler Articles

Group Members,

While one would think this was implied, it turns out that it is
important to offer assistance (in writing) to modelers pursuing B&O
prototypes. That said I would like to offer assistance to the members
of this group who are modeling B&O RR prototypes. If anyone would like
information through the Society's Archives I am willing to serve as a
conduit. My hope is that an article for one of the B&ORRHS
publications results, but that is not required.

There's a train of SP single sheathed box cars in one of his movies.

No. Ted knew the business well enough to only grant "one-time serial" (magazine) rights to RMC.

Re: M&STL 50' plug door.

Gene Green <bierglaeser@...>
 

As someone has already posted, the M&StL ordered 30 insulated,
compartmentized (is that really a word?) box cars from PC&F. This
was an add-on to a WFEX order. The KO&G also got 5 cars at the same
time, same order.

Compartmentizers were manufactured by Pullman-Standard. Trucks
were70-ton type A-3 Ride Control. Hand brake was Universal but I
don't know which model. Universal hand brakes all looked pretty much
alike in those years anyway.

Diagonal panel, riveted roofs were painted aluminum.

Grab irons on left end of each side of Branchline car are wrong.
Branchline has them on brackets. The M&StL cars had drop grabs
riveted directly to car side with no bracket.

These RBL's were bought to haul canned goods.

These were the first 50 foot box cars on the M&StL ever. The Iowa
Central came close with 75 furniture cars built in 1898 which had an
inside length of 49'-10".

The roofs were black on the CGW cars not the M&StL!

I didn't know I sent this email....

Hi all (especially BAR experts),

I am getting ready to decal some F&C BAR 1927 (and later) built SS
boxcars. I model mid 1950. Would it be appropriate to have a car
with
the BAR shield? If I could put a shield on a car which would be more
appropriate the black or "clear" background? I also notice on the
pics
provided that some cars have "Bangor and Aroostook" vs. "Bangor &
Aroostook". When was this changed ("&" appears to be earlier)?

TIA for any help,
Tom,

I have photos of two of these cars, #1379 with a reweigh date of 3-50,
and 1507 with a 11-49 reweigh date. Both cars appear to have the
shield stencilled right on the car color and have the reporting mark
and number to the left of the door. Neither car has the road name
spelled out on the car. This is the way I will decal my F&C model for
a 1951 era railroad. The photos were from Bob's Photo.

into the early 1960's show cars in their original lettering

Re: M&STL 50' plug door.

Douglas Harding <dharding@...>
 

Brian attached (off list) are two lists created by Gene Green. One (the pdf)
is a list of models for M&StL. The other is a list of M&StL freight cars.
The cars you asked about were a lot of 30 cars, even numbered only,
purchased in 1957 from Pacific Car & Foundry. The Branchline model is what
Gene recommends to use to model these cars.

Tim is correct the M&StL served 5 canning companies along with a number of
grocery/food warehouses: Best Food Inc. in St. Louis Park, MN; Chaska
Canning in Chaska MN; Green Giant in Montgomery and Winthrop MN; Marshall
Canning in Ackley IA; Big Stone Canning in Arlington MN; Variety Foods in
Clara City MN; Red Owl Grocers along with National Tea and Super Value in
Hopkins MN; plus American Crystal Sugar in Chaska MN and Mason City IA; and
Watertown Potato Co. in Watertown SD.
