Brian,

You should be able to model one of these welded cars
with 15' double doors:

doors

SN series 2401- 2500 blt 1955 PS lot 8268 SU 6p
WP series 3801- 3818 blt 1954 PS lot 8213 IY
WP series 3838- 3862 blt 1955 PS lot 8267 IY

WP series 19601-19700 blt 1956 PS
WP series 35101-35182 blt 1954 PS lot 8213
WP series 35201-35300 blt 1955 PS lot 8239 IY

WP series 35326-35425 blt 1955 PS lot 8268 IY
WP series 35501-35625 blt 1957 PS

Note some were renumbered in the 1960's. I don't know
what era you're modeling.

Thanks Tim,
Darn I was hoping to model one using the IM 50' car which has welded sides.

I'm looking for information on the above cars. The only information I

While the date of the photo - supposedly April 1970 - is
beyond the time limit of this list, the point is that it
shows a steam-era tank car pretty much in an "as-built"
condition many decades after it was built.
Shawn, I would guess the car is 12 to 16 years old in 1970.
I have Ed's ACF books but I don't feel like looking it up...

WRNX 11427 - A Gulf "Survivor"

List,

Here's a photo of WRNX 11427, found lurking amongst a
host of other images discovered by Tim O'Connor:

While the date of the photo - supposedly April 1970 - is
beyond the time limit of this list, the point is that it
shows a steam-era tank car pretty much in an "as-built"

is no dome platform - I had thought most if not all tank
cars of this vintage had received full platforms by this
late period. Too bad the photo is blurred; I'd like to
know the built-date on this car.

Group,

I'm building a pair of Funaro's kit for these gondolas.  My question
is that the numbers shown on
the box photograph and supplied on the decal sheets show a 399xxx
number.  Refering to the NYC
freight car website (recently mentioned here) showed that this series
were actually cars which
were built new as all steel in 1926.  Accordinng to the site the
gondolas which were the original
USRA cars were in the 658000-659999 series (in 8 lots).  It seems to
me that the correct number
should be the 658000-659000.  True?
They were renumbered into the following when rebuilt with steel sides:
379-G; NYC 349000-349499 (DB) to NYC 658000-658499 (DB) or NYC
623000-623499 (FB)

624800-624999 (FB)
403-G; NYC 349750-349999 (DB) to NYC 658750-658999 (DB) or NYC
623750-623999 (FB)

Cars were converted to flat bottom when their floors were due for
"renewal" (NYCS term).


Also---these cars are also listed with two different number series:

658000-659999(DB)
623000-624999(FB)

What does the FB & DB mean?
Drop and flat bottom.

Re: NYC 1930's Non-Cupola Caboose??

Norman+Laraine Larkin <lono@...>
 

I don't know about the NYC in general, but the Boston & Albany (a part of the NYC system) had a class CA-5 caboose, many of which had no cupola. One hundred and fifty six were built in 1919 in the number series B&A 1117-1299 with some (?) renumbered into the NYC 17000 series (not sure when or how many). Forty eight of the 156 did not have cupolas according to an outline drawing dated 14 Feb 1950. These were wood, steel underframe cabooses with no truss rods. See "Caboose Data Book No 1A, Cabooses of the New Haven and New York Central Railroads" published by N.J. International in 1989. Hope this helps.

Tim:

It looks like 72421, but the original series is probably 97000 or 97500 built in 1929. The auxiliary door has been removed and plated over to create a box car with a 6 ft. door opening.

Re: caboose radio equipment

Andy Sperandeo <asperandeo@...>
 

The Santa Fe began equipping cabooses (and cab diesels) with radios in 1949. The ATSF never used a "radio equipped" logo, but it did add the letter "R" following the road number of radio-equipped cabooses.

So long,

Hi All,

I would like to thank all who have replied to my requests. It is sincerely
appreciated. I have enough info now to do the car.

I don't know how some of you do it. I have been a member of the PRR T&HS
since 1990. I have been studying mostly PRR rolling stock for almost as long
trying to have at least a walking knowledge of what was acceptable and
correct.

Many of you on this list know more then me about the PRR and MANY roads. It
does amaze me at times. The computer and internet sure have helped in
getting the info though.

Thank You,
Bill Lane
