You might check with Mt. Albert Scale Lumber, Northeastern Scale
Lumber, or Midwest. They have to get their wood from somewhere,
perhaps you can cut a deal with them.

Group,

I should have pointed out that I have already done some Google searching and found the link Jon posted which did not have good solutions for the problem other than ordering hundreds of dollars of stuff from Europe - not my ideal solution. I'm really hoping somebody knows a laser cutting company or is involved with one that could help with finding the plywood in small amounts. Thanks.

Tom,

I have no drawings before 1905, and I have little interest before 1940.  So I am of no help.

There have been some articles in The Streamliner about early freight cars, but still Harriman era.

0.6mm plywood

Eric Mumper
 

Group,

I would like to find some 0.6mm plywood (roughly 2" HO scale) to have some wood running boards cut.  I know this stuff is used in the hobby as I have some flatcar decks of this thickness.  This is mostly a European size.  I need small sheets as the running boards are 5" long.  Please let me know if you are aware of somebody either selling this or an ability to purchase it as sheets from a laser cutting company.  Thanks.

You guys need to enlarge the image and actually read what the side of the car has stenciled on it. Then the whole donut vs police protecting their staple subsistence makes more sense.

The "Report of the Mechanical Advisory Committee to the Federal Coordinator of Transportation" [Dec 27, 1935] indicates the B&O had 300 LCL merchandise containers since 1929. Capacity 420 cubic ft, with dimensions of 9' 3.5" x 7' 2.5" x 8' 2" high. NYC, and LV also had those containers. There are taller [9' 4.5" high] containers ,but these had legs and these not listed as being used by the B&O. The containers with legs, designed for fork truck loading on drop-side gons, are listed for the NYC, LV and RDG. The taller had lift rings, so the drop-side not a requirement. Wonder what the side dimension on that gon is? Neat picture, the containers in photo could be these two. I have the LV 1928 container tariff, don't remember B&O interchange point, will have to dig out. I'd guess the NYC interchanged with B&O at Rochester, Buffalo and ????.

Rich,

The steel gons all look like USRA mill gon designs. Note the crease on the drop ends.

The 1931 photo pre-dates the B&O acquisition of the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh. If they came via LV or NYC interchange in the western tier, then they came in by the BR&P. There's a BR&P mill gon to the right of the crane in the full image.

Another NYC connection to consider is the P&LE. The B&O interchanged with the P&LE in the Pittsburgh District, possibly McKeesport.
