Re: Throwback Thursday: Ambroid Western Union Material Car

Second guess is correct. The camp cars were converted wooden Pullmans which already had diaphragms, so the tool and material cars had them, but only at  one end because that was their position in the outfit plan...at the ends of the train.

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?

I use Outlook. At the top of each email I receive on this list it says,

<main@RealSTMFC.groups.io; on behalf of; and gives the name and email address of the sender>

I captured the address for Matt from that line, emailed him privately, selected an item I wanted to purchase, bought it and paid for it.  Just look for that line in the email you receive.

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.


Re: off list email replies

I also use Outlook. But the links to various ways pf reply are still at the bottom of all messages and do work quite well.

Two things I am aware of.

It is possible to reply off list if you search you email program.

Then, the idea of replying off list to stop countless postings about a sale notice. Something that has been happening here to discuss how to reply off list.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] off list email replies

 

I use MS Outlook on my computer. When I want to reply to an author post offline, I first copy their email address from the original message. I hit Reply, delete the group email address, and paste in the author’s address. I might need to edit the address for an AOL or Yahoo account, as Groups.io adds extra characters for some reason. I’ll also add OFF LIST at the beginning of the Subject line and before the RE: and original subject.

 

The Reply to Sender function sets up a reply to the discussion list. Hitting Reply first and then finding the author’s address can be problematic as that original email address is sometimes removed on the reply. That’s why I find the author’s address and copy it first before hitting reply.

 

Each program is different and the on-line Groups.io experience may also be different. A user must be aware of the functions when initiating a private reply. A check of the To email address is also recommended.

 

These are just some of the steps I use to communicate off list in order to share details on steam era freight cars.

Ralph:

My "fix" doesn't have anything to do with email providers, or the buttons that you can see in their interfaces.  It involves going to our groups.io website and using the Messages section. 

This is worth knowing about in case (a) a seller/lister neglects to include his/her email, or (b) you wish to contact a group member off-list about any number of possible topics.

Hi Brian, Dave, et al.,
 
I am aware of these buttons, but they do not function as advertised with any of my email servers.  (In addition to WLM and TWC/Spectrum, I also have the current MS Mail.)  Sometimes I can decipher the sender’s email address when it shows up, as Brian’s does, in the for, “[address]@...” by substituting “@” for the “=” sign and dropping the “@groups.io,” but I have occasionally had problems with that too.  This problem is common to all Groups.IO lists to which I belong.
 
I think the bottom line here is that those looking for a direct/private reply need to provide their email addresses.

Re: Western Pacific Model and Decal Guide

Garth Groff <sarahsan@...>
 

Fred,

Thanks for the reminders. I will incorporate most into the final version. I am not too concerned about some problems you cite with the PK2000 gondolas. They are reasonably close for most modelers. I will mention the floors and the trucks. I had forgotten about them (my own 6501 is on National B-1 trucks).

I have both Andy's boxcar and stock car, but I decided to skip them because they are so rare. I'm already tantalizing people with a lot of stuff that is hard to find.

Didn't Sunshine do the 19001 boxcars?

Looks like the text will cover another page, but so be it.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

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.

Hi Mike, Chuck, et al.,
 
Chuck is right, and it is not just a Firefox thing.  I use Windows Live Mail primarily,but I also have have TWC/Spectrum email.  It appears to be a Groups.IO phenomenon and it appears with both of my servivers.  I think that folks looking to sell, buy or otherwise want private responses need to include their email address in their message.  One way to do that is to include it in the signature block as I routinely do.  See below.
 
My two cents.

     Can't speak for other applications, but Mac Mail allows you to select the sender's name in the email you received,  and choose "reply to sender." Works every time.

It's possible (I hesitate to say easy) to respond privately by simply going to the groups.io page, and replying though that interface.  There is a green Reply to Group button on the lower left, but this can be toggled by the Private icon to the lower left so that only the original poster will receive your message..

BTW, I think Matthew is blameless here.  He did say "Please PM me for a full list...".  In case anybody isn't aware, PM means "private (or personal) message".
