Garth my friend, I still have your original list in my ordner!
Tipped you -years ago- about the Pecos River brass WP 1201-series  tank cars in K- & AB brake versions.
Ted's Speedwitch offered us a very nice resin kit to build into one of the WP 20001-class 'shorty' box cars: K-114.1 and 114.2
Chad Boaz offers a resin body of the WP 2401-series flat car. He once also offered decals, but these are gone now.
The P2K 6601-6800 cars are not faithful reproductions. The floor is wood, should be steel. The sides are missing 56 strap lugs and matching holes in the top sills to run the ropes through. The ends have no pole pockets, cut levers or brake brackets & hoses. The trucks are random plank versions and should be A-3 Ride Control (Kadee/Kato).
The 6501-6600 class has wood floor, is also missing end details and must ride on National B-1 trucks (Kadee).
Andy Carlson once offered resin casting for the 15001-Pullman built box car and the 75801 stock car.

News:
- there's a WP reefer coming this spring from RCW; all variations can be build from that kit, incl tks and Speedwitch decal set.
- Westerfield is working on the MEGA RARE 1936 rebuilt WP19001-series double door boxcar (one 6' and one 7' door)
- Yarmouth is in the planning stages with the 2401-series flat car.

cheerio,
Fred 'WP' Jansz

Mike - the problem with this approach is that unless Matthew sets his profile to make his email address visible to members of the group, it does not appear possible to respond directly to him.  I don't know if it is group IO or firefox, but clicking on "reply to sender" (or even "reply to group") gives a menu that steers you to email applications that you might not use.

Matthew failed to mention that ALL communications regarding his list WILL be OFF GROUP. Meaning that if you want his list send him a message to his personal address…NOT the RealSTMFC…requesting that he send you  his list sent to your address, not that of the RealSTMFC. Failure to do so will land you [ and him ] in jail.

I love this Ambroid car (one of my layout as we speak), but have always wondered about the passenger diaphragm on one end.  Were these cars designed/equipped for occasional operation on passenger trains, or was the diaphragm there to provide protected entrance and egress if the car was coupled  -parked or underway-  to a related bunk/dormitory/WU official car?

Bill,

Not a D&H maven but there was an article in November 1987 RMC on the prototype with a plan by Chuck Yungkurth showing all three ends, and the with an underframe plan. The December issue the same year had a how to model the cars article.

Inspired by an item on the Speedwitch Blog (http://prototopics.blogspot.com/2019/02/wordy-wednesday-delaware-hudson-36-foot.html) I retrieved my F&C kit #3406 and have pretty much finished building and detailing the superstructure. I am stuck however doing the underframe as I am not confident how to proceed. There are some parts that I think are meant to be Crossbearers but the instruction as usual are not helpful.

I am curious if there are any D&H mavens here that may have information on the prototype. In his blog post Ted Culotta said he thought there may have been a RMC article by John Nehrich. Can anyone verify this? I plan to post model photos soon.

The Nehrich construction article, featuring an extensive kitbash of the MDC 36 ft DS boxcar, appeared in the December 1987 issue of RMC.  He followed drawings by Chuck Yungkurth published in the November 1987 issue of RMC.

Group,

I have for sale about 100 RTR freight cars from the steam and transition era. Most are Red Caboose, Intermountain, Proto, Athearn, & other brands like this. There are also some brass examples, resin kits, and wood passengers cars in the mix. Lastly, there are a few locomotives included in this sale. Most of it is surplus to my collection which centers around western and midwestern roads such as ATSF, SP, and D&RGW.

Most models include Kadee couplers and metal wheels, unless otherwise mentioned. Some have been weathered while others are new in box. Many of these are missing their original boxes but prices are reasonable and large volume discounts are offered. Buyer pays shipping and PayPal is preferred. Please PM me for a full list in PDF for as it's far too long to post here. Thanks you all, and enjoy your day!

Friends,

Many years ago I compiled a list of HO freight car and caboose models suitable for the Western Pacific, Sacramento Northern and Tidewater Southern up to 1958. I long ago lost that list, but member R.J. Dial had a copy, and made many comments, corrections and additions. It is now revised and updated with decal suggestions.

Additional material is welcome, but I reserve the right decide what is appropriate.


The list is attached for your enlightenment and approval. I believe as an attachment it will be automatically saved to our group's files section. If not, I will eventually post a copy there with any changes the group wants.
Yours Aye,

That was the first Ambroid Kit I ever built. I sold it a few years ago as it did not match my layout or era.
