Farming and road construction equipment are a necessity in the area I model on my HO layout depicting the B&O Shenandoah SD set in late September 1956. I have numerous industries that have sidetracks that can accept flatcars for unloading the equipment such as farm vehicles, graders, bulldozers, etc. 

Besides Ebay, online book sellers, and various railroadiana shows, any other places I should be looking for the AAR Loading Rules for Flatcars appropriate to my era?

 

Thanks.

George,

Thanks for the link. Thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and the others that I attended. Thanks to Mike and the other organisers for putting it all together and the presenters for taking the time to create and present their clinics.

I think these are ex-Wabash cars - a Sunshine mini-kit that mostly involved applying new
ends to the Tichy box car? Or perhaps ex-DT&I? Or both Wabash and DT&I?

You could try the link at RPMconference.com as well.  We've posted a digital copy of the Attendee Program, and some additional handouts/presentations - George's and Chris Vanko's included- for which we have permission to share.  


Hope that helps,

Re: AAR Loading Rule for Flatcars info

Eric Hansmann
 

Railway Prototype Cyclopedia Volume 20 featured 80-some pages of diagrams and photos for flat car loading practices.

 

The Master Car Builders’ Association formulated rules for open loads in 1908 and diagrams have been periodically published in ORER volumes. Many of these diagrams did not change much over the years. Some additional diagrams have been added as new types of loads are introduced, such as TOFC loads.

 

Train Shed Cyclopedia No. 36, published by Newton K. Gregg, contains 17 pages of loading diagrams from the 1919 Car Builders’ Dictionary. Many of these are the same as what is featured in RPCyc 20.

 

IIRC, the NMRA reprinted a mid-1940s AAR book on open load practices, too. Many of those diagrams were the same as those in the 1919 CBD.

 

YMMV.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I had a great time at the RPM and preparing this clinic as well as meeting many new friends.  I hesitated publishing this CGW Clinic but as Kristin mentioned, it is hard to get to all of them. I myself did not get to all I wanted to as I was part of 2 clinics, my CGW and helped  Dick Harley with the Soldering for Electronics Clinic. It is a great experience  in both giving and viewing. As my clinic was built around a talk track, if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Re: In defense of the blue box

G.J. Irwin
 

The STMFC and the RPMs show that we can aspire to great modeling without feeling superior about it.  (And boy, would I need a lot of aspiration to get anywhere near what RPMs display.)

As much as I enjoyed shaking the box, both with my dad when I was much younger and with my children before they "aged out" (for now?), I also enjoy seeing what is possible.  One of the happiest moments of my life was taking my late dad to an RPM-like display in Central New Jersey (Somerset, I think, or thereabouts) and watching him marvel at what was there AND having explained to him what the modelers did, with not a hint of pretense.   Kudos to all of you who make that happen everywhere-- I'm sure my dad's experience was not an isolated occurrence.

Cheers,
George Irwin

On my model the connecting rod is between the center sills (underframe channels).

Re: Rapido NP boxcar, K brake question

Dennis Storzek
 

Alex,

I haven't gotten the chance to see the new Rapido car, but the foundation brake rigging diagram you directed us to is for passenger cars. Few freightcars used brake cylinders with an attachment point for the brake lever on the cylinder head; this attachment was normally to the frame towards the A end of the car. Does this help?

Re: Rapido NP boxcar, K brake question

Alexander Schneider Jr
 

I received mine, and I have a question about the K brake system. I don’t see any connection between the lever on the “A” end and the rest of the system. My 1928 Car Builders Cyclopedia shows a connecting rod between the two levers. I can’t imagine it would be between the underframe channels. Any ideas?

George,

Thank you for sharing this. Really well done. I had hoped to sit in on the clinic in Chicagoland, but unfortunately missed it due to scheduling.
