don't know why but Howard Ameling (NKP "expert") called them basket cars.

NKP steam era stock cars (the ones proceeding these) are featured in the RMC planbook and Mainline Modeler's stock car book.

If you search Dry Ice on the NYCHS photo archive it will bring up several more images of Dry Ice cars.

Re: Need about 15 HO brake reservoirs for project

Hi,

 

Thanks.  Those would be perfect for what I want to do with the reefers.  So if you have extras that you are not going to use, I’ll take them.  I am planning to use the extra triple valve castings from Sunshine kits for the project.  I have a bunch of them, but have already used all the resin reservoirs.  I really hate to break up a complete new AB brake set for just the reservoirs.  My address is:

Let me know what I owe you for postage.

 

Thanks again,

 

Chuck

I model 1939 so rarely use the resin reservoir castings from the Sunshine and Westerfield kits. If you end up short and those are OK, just let me know.

Folks,
    I think recently someone posted a link to two Wilson's steel 4 foot reefers with ice bunkers, showing clearly the roof hatches. I believe the car numbers were in the 2000 series. I can't find that link, could whoever posted it re-post? Much obliged!

Impressive, just extremely impressive! A contest model. And I am sure Bill would have been delighted to see it.

Saltville as the name suggests was the site of natural salt springs, which during the Civil War were a strategic resource, needed for food preservation.  The Union attacked twice, being beat back the first time.  That force included black troops, and those wounded and captured were murdered in the "Saltville Massacre"...  The sodium Chloride was likely the raw material for the manufacture of the chlorine.

Chuck:

Not sure about 15, but I must have at least 10 Tichy AB sets kicking around, never to be used.

Contact me off list, and we'll figure something out to solve your shortfall.

Re: heavy duty trucks on B&LE hoppers

akerboomk
 

Ed – Thanks for all the B&LE info.

 

I’m trying to figure out where the B&M 7000 (2nd) HTs and 7600-7799 HMs came from.

Both were ex-B&LE cars.

Some info can be found here:

            https://www.bmrrhs.org/hopper_7000_2_series/

            https://www.bmrrhs.org/hopper_7600_series/

 

I have some questions, as I don’t have the relevant “source” material.

 

For the B&M 7000 series (3 bay) hoppers.

One difference I notice on the various builder’s photos.

-       Some cars (B&LE 65001, the plans in the CBCs) show an angle iron for the 1st and 5th rib in from each end.

-       Some cars (76064, 67001 and 68101, 69050, 69101) had “hat” sections for all the ribs
The (very few) photos of the B&M cars also show “hat” section for all ribs

 

1)    I don’t have a full 1940 CBC (just the Trainshed reprint #5), could someone look to see if the picture of 66601 (p352?) shows some angle iron ribs, or all-hat section ribs?

 

2)    Are there any distinguishing features of 50001-50500, vs. 50501-50750, that I can use to spot if the B&M cars came from the one series, the other, or both?

 

 

Thanks…Ken

Hi Chuck,
 
I found these on Shapeways. They're ABD sets but the cylinders may work, and the price is right!

Group,

I want to start a project to convert about 15 reefer cars from K brakes to AB brakes and need brake reservoirs.  I don't want to steal just the reservoirs from Tichy or other sets and have enough triple valves and brake cylinders to complete the project, so I just need the reservoirs. Anyone have some ideas?  Thanks
