Since no one has asked the big question here......Hey Don, do you have any
more of the SSCo half door castings to sell? If so, pass along the details
as you may make a few sales here.

Re: Which Detail Assoc. ladder to use for this MILW gondola?

albyrno
 

The rungs look to be attached to the outer side of uprights
sides so holes would not need to be drilled,it would be easy to make one out of brass by building a jig with basswood for rung and side spacing and solder rungs to ladder sides,if you cannot find small enough material for sides you could file flat sides of brass rod.

This is why I'm preserving my last set of these doors in amber, and will
eventually cast up a few extra sets in resin for my own fleet needs.
They're hugely handy parts to have around, and it's a shame that they're no
longer available and likely won't EVER be again.

Unless we can convince Don Tichy that a wood half door to match his Camel
door would be a handy thing to add to the catalog!

It's getting increasingly difficult to find detail parts. I've
occasionally seen the SCC parts
at train shows at dealers who set out boxes of miscellaneous stuff,
usually seen in conjunction
with Don's heavyweight passenger car details. The doors are very nicely
made.

Erie 26500-27749 Hopper Car Attrition

Ed Hawkins
 

Members,
In 1940-41 Erie purchased 1,250 50-ton, 33' offset-side hopper cars numbered 26500-27749 from Pullman and General American. Capacity was 2081 cu. ft.

They truck along with low attrition for about 14 years with 1,238 cars remaining in service per the 1/55 ORER. The 4/55 ORER number is 691 for a substantial drop of 547 cars in just 3 months. The in-service numbers continued to fall sharply with just 55 cars that remained in 10/57. All were gone in 1960.

In late 1956 the C&O purchased 244 of these cars. The P&S purchased 160 in the very late 1950s to 1960. That accounts for slightly more than 400 cars.

Does anyone know what happened to the other 800 cars that were removed from service from early 1955 to the late 1950s? Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Ed Hawkins

Re: F&C Twin Milk Tanks on West Coast Bay Area

The tanks were filmed in black and white. They were a light color, grey appearing in the movie and were in a freight train. Thanks much for the reply.

The color of the tanks may help. In chemical service they tended to be orange or blue, less carefully painted with minimal markings since they were freight cars in that context. In milk service they were better kept often with milk company names on them and almost always in passenger consists.

While watching Pentrex's Cab Forward video, I saw a NCL tank milk car in the train filmed in the bay area.

I don't think milk would have been shipped from the east to the west coast, and I can't recall any milk shipments on the west coast, so I'm I correct to assume that this may have been a Borden Chemical shipment, glue perhaps?

The tanks had no markings on them and the flat was a National Car Line.

Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

Jim, I presume you have gone out to the Bowser website or have tried to
contact them directly.

http://www.bowser-trains.com/

While it is a bit tricky to find on the website, if you poke around a bit
you will find a page that has a number of their steam locomotives pictured
with associated links to the available parts for each.

Your inquiry is only remotely connected to the subject matter of this forum
in that steam era freight cars were often pulled by - badoom-teesh - steam
locomotives.

Hello Tony,
I hate to disillusion you as it appears you have never tried the Standard Car CO. #1000 kit. One of the nice features that was purposely designed into the kit is that you do NOT remove any large pieces of the Accurail carbody being modified. The parts of the #1000 kit drop right onto the Accurail carside.
You're right, Don, I didn't know that. I have one of the nice castings that Richard Hendrickson made for the GTW car, and it is intended to be dropped into the cut-out car side. But I didn't mind, as I am in the middle of a second bash of that Accurail car, to do the 10-foot door needed for the SP's Shasta Water cars. That conversion happily uses part of the door removed from the first car.

Jim,
I also had a problem getting Bowser parts. A good place to start looking is Bowser (http://bowser-trains.com/index.htm). They're very cooperative, although their stock of steam engine parts is vanishing quickly. I've also had luck on ebay. Sometimes it pays to buy a seriously abused loco just for the parts.
