Schuyler,



The NP 38668-38759 series double door box cars were steel cars that were on
the roster after the cut off time of this list. For a diagram of the cars go
to nprha.org, go to freight cars, box car diagrams, and then to number
series.

These were 40’ two-door cars. I would like to find a good ¾ view of these,
perhaps two, showing A and B ends.



Can any of the NP guys on this list provide me with links, or perhaps a
scanned image or two?



Thanks very much.

Thank you, Charlie Slater.  It is people like yourself and so many others on this list to help manufacturers get things right.

Bravo!


Anyone have any thoughts regarding an ID on this 40ft SS auto Box?

    Sorta (real loosely)  fits with my comments on .088 wheels!  For a 50-60 dollar car range these must be correct.  The folks buying these are not blue boxers so they should get them right.  The standard line if they don't is well nobody is buying them.

There are two major things wrong with their ad. First the side running boards WERE NOT DIAMOND PLATE steel but open grid steel the same as the dome platforms. Second the Tk-O is the same as the Tk-N and not the TK-M. I have sent the corrections to San Juan Car Co. and they said samples should arrive shortly and they think everything will be OK, otherwise we will have another bad model.

American Limited has announced HO scale tank car models! Built in
the late 1940's with steel grid walkways and open grid dome platforms.

Too bad they're not SP tank cars. :-(

But they are the first 16,000 gallon plastic tank car models in HO scale
and a number of railroads had cars of this size. Major kitbash fodder if
nothing else. :-)

Re: this nice scene showing a bulk oil dealer receiving track...

I concur with Dennis and Doug. The pivoted and counterweighted pipe arrangement is like what was used for unloading tank cars, the pipe seems to be mounted too low for a tank car, but about right for a small tender. It looks like a car spotted at the platform would foul the main, not a good arrangement for an industry spot, but no big deal in a shortline engine terminal.
The dark shape at the right edge could be an open enginehouse door, with a corner of the roof eave visible.

Hi Fred--For the Barber plankless, look at the Exactrail ET-114. It is on p. 11 of Richard Hendrickson's HO Freight Car Trucks.

It is an interesting article written by the late Bob Karig. Did he ever write the book that was referenced on the NYO&W?

The web article is at:  http://nyow.org/oversized_gla.html

Were there other railroads that had similar cars? I recall a long time ago that, David, you did a GLa roster. I'll have to find it in my saved files and review it.

Per the 1939 Freight Equipment Book, the 38300-38999 are 36 foot double sheathed wood cars with the frame fishbelly at the edge of the car sides.  W&R imported these cars in HO and Funaro makes a resin kit for them.

Barber vs ASF in HO

Fred Jansz
 

Hi all, my WP modeling asks for two different plankless 50 ton trucks under one type of box car model (WP 20201-20550).
WP 20201-20350 had Barber S2 trucks and WP 20351-20550 had ASF A-3 trucks.
I've bought Branchline (Atlas) S-2's and Kato A-3's because these represent the prototypes best with their typical diagonal inner beam supports.
The Branchline S-2 truck has the thinner spring support and the Kato A-3 truck the thicker one.
However; the Kadee 562 A-3 truck might be a bit finer in the details than the Kato. Are there any other options for the Branchline S2, since the journal boxes are a bit skinny. Your thoughts are appreciated.
best regards,
Fred Jansz



Re: Red Caboose/SPHS and InterMountain's Bulkhead Flat Car Models Questions

Brian Carlson
 

I’m a little late to the party, but I finally had time to find my Intermountain B&O car. It is B&O 8840 A P-25D class car converted from P-25a in 1954-55. According to my notes on the car, (I probably asked on this list) it was converted to service a new gypsum pant at Shoals Indiana.  Loads were wrapped in forklift sized stacks individually wrapped in white plastic.

 

The intermountain car I have has a 1965 reweigh so I fear it may be in a later paint scheme not appropriate for my 1957 era. If anyone can point me to mid 1950’s photos of P-25D flats with bulkheads that would be appreciated.  Currently the IM car is still in its package.

I agree. I looked at this last time the photo was posted. Given the small locomotive and general rinky-dink feel of the facilities, this must be a short line, and that certainly looks like a coaling platform to me.

Hi List Members,

We discussed a tank car unloading station image about a week back. Now that I have a better idea of what to look for, I noticed a
second image that may capture such a location.

In the image linked below, there is a rack and pipe arrangement in front of the wooden platform - is this also a top unloading
location?
