Vallejo paints also are receiving positive reviews from modelers in my area.

 

Even though Vallejo is well established and distributed internationally I don't expect to see the Vallejo line in all the railroad hobby shops, though. One of the paint lines we are likely to see in the railroad hobby shops is Tru Color.  I say this because Tru Color is being distributed by Horizon Hobby (Athearn's parent) and I know hobby shop owners generally like to keep things simple by limiting the number of distributors they deal with.

Gents,

 

Speaking of True Color paint, we had a retailer at STL RPM that carried the full line, and I bought five bottles to try out.  I love it!  It's very thin, can be sprayed right out of the bottle, and the colors are excellent.  I attempted to brush paint with it and got bad results, most likely because it's so thin.  Also, be advised that normal paint thinner cannot be used to thin the paint, and I have not been able to mix this paint with any other brand to modify the colors.  I have also not been able to mix it with Glosscote or Dullcote (as I do sometimes to alter colors).  Laquer thinner works to clean your airbrush.  But I am pleased that there are finally good colors like IC Maroon and NYC BC Red that I have never been able to make satisfactorily.  Try one--I think you'll like them.

Use acetone as a thinner for Tru Color paints. My hand painting of freight car wheels and touch ups using Tru Color worked pretty good.

Re: Mystery tank car, etc.

SHAY STARK
 

While looking through Ted's Steam Era Freight Cars Reference Manual Volume 2 Tank Cars I noticed a car that is similar but of a larger capacity. It is a Standard Tank Car Company three compartment tank car owned by Shell, SCCX 164. The frames look the same and the domes look similar but the tank capacities are obviously different as SCCX 164 is 9,000 gallons and the tank on the car in the Delano picture looks to be a smaller capacity in the 4,000 to 6,000 gallon range.

Thanks,

Shay Stark

The recent thread and RMC article on the Barrett tank car conversions reminded me of something I'd noticed a few years ago in one of the Jack Delano OWI photos taken at Proviso Yard.
The car in question is the first of three tank cars in the block of cars beginning with a B&O wagontop boxcar. It appears to be a 6K gal tank car with three unusual domes or hatches, with light colored spills around them. Unfortunately, the best resolution I have isn't enough to clarify the details. I thought of a covered hopper conversion as a possibility, but I dunno. The car seems to be placarded as a hazardous commodity, so I think we can rule out slate granules. Is this image enough for anyone to recognize and identify?

Don’t have photos of a train wreck, closest I have is a wrecked meat reefer filled with meat. But here is an article with photos about a truck wreck, which should give you a good idea of the scenery/weathering that would be needed http://sobac.com/~stopthestink/2012/04/spill-leads-to-questions-about-truck-traffic/

Sounds like the recipe for a really unusual tran wreck scene

Bob, good question. Here’s the article http://forecast.diabetes.org/insulin-jul2013

 

I can only speculate. The pancreases would have been collected at slaughter houses and labeled as a PHP (Packing House Product). Packing house owners knew there was money to be made with byproducts, so they were set up for retrieving all animal parts that had value. Indianapolis, home of Eli Lily, was a major slaughter town once known as Porkopolis for the number of hogs slaughtered there. It was also home of Kingan Meats.

 

I will go out on a limb and suggest the pancreases were shipped in reefers, to keep them “fresh”. Insulin must be refrigerated, why not the source? While most “gut” byproducts were shipped in open gons, the contents in the gons were intended for fertilizer not human consumables. Other byproducts, especially those for human consumption, were shipped in the controlled environment of reefers, boxcars or tank cars.

 

It is very possible that National Provisioner magazine had an article discussing this very subject. They published a number of articles related to byproducts and making money from animal byproducts.

 

According to http://www.madehow.com/Volume-7/Insulin.html it was in 1921 the first insulin was produced. In 1936 an improvement required a fish byproduct.
