Gents,
I did not see this advertised yet, even though the announcement was made May 11.  Tangent has produced another transition-era tank car in HO (although the schemes in the first run are just within this group's limit).

GATC 1952-design 8,000 gallon welded tank car:

Yeah, I was rather perturbed when I realized the IMRC seems to have lost or dumped the Red Caboose moulds.
Doesn’t make much sense to me

Question - The weight of the logs would rest directly on the two cross I beams which are directly over the truck bolsters and the trucks. Little or no weight would be on the center portion of the car.  Why the need for truss bars?
Typically because the truss rods also hold the end sills on. Admittedly, since the center of the car carries no weight they could be replaced with straight tie rods, but in the case of these rebuilds, they were already there, so were left in place.

Super Clean degreaser will lift lettering from Accurail cars in less than two hours without affecting the paint – unless you soak cars for a week and scrub hard with a toothbrush. I haven’t tried to selectively remove lettering or used it on Walthers cars.

Hello,

Anybody have any tips or tricks to remove only the road numbers on a Walthers Boxcar.  I will give Walthers credit that paint is tough as nails.

I have tried the following:

Micro-sol trick which the paint laughed at and didnt budge.

Isopropyl Alcohol which kind of worked.  Have to press really hard to get it to budge and really easy to go through color paint.  The numbers came off eventually but you could still see them raised in the paint.

Scale coat thinner which took off the color and number.

Has anybody used Scalecoat wash away to remove just letters?  Little nervous to try soda blasting.  I really dont want to repaint the entire car just to change the road number.

Scott,
I use a Euro scratch brush to remove lettering only.  Light passes.  I have used it on many different cars with success.  A complete writeup and photos are on my blog.  Look under “labels” for “ scratch brush.” for complete details if interested.  The link is:

Scott,
  In a back issue of Model Railroad Hobbyist in Ken Patterson's column he shared a tip on a Walthers locomotive he renumbered. He used Solvaset and Scotch tape. I vaguely recall he applied the Solvaset to the number, allowed it to dry and then pressed the tape on the number and removed the tape. I have not tried this technique so I can't say how well it works.

There are some photos of log cars in the portion of the Walt Ainsworth NP Locations collection at the NPRHA website.  It is a little difficult to find the link, and more difficult to filter, but here is a link

http://www.nprha.org/Lists/WWANL/AllItems.aspx

An example - once in the web page, you can scroll down 5 pictures to find a 1953 log train on the Auburn wye. 

Searching the site is awkward - we are working on better software.  But once on Walt's Location page, click on the right site of subject 2 to get a menu.  Scroll down and check "log train" to get access to 17 pictures that meet that heading.  You can do the same on subject 1, but there are only 2 pictures.  You can also check "car-lot" but there is only one pic currently posted.

We are working to put up more pictures that have been scanned and indexed.  That's not in my shop, so I don't know how soon it will happen.

Unfortunately, you can't get more than the thumbnail from web site.  But you can contact Pacific NW Railroad Archive for a better print.  info@...

Hope this helps.

Thanks Brian!  It looks like the pins on the log cradle fold down for dumping?

In addition to Gene Deimling's post on skeleton log cars, here are two more images.  Photographed in Olympia. WA circa early 1950s.
