1955 I think - both appeared in that year but I don't know if one preceded the other.

When did New Haven first start painting boxcars in the bright orange and orange and black paint schemes?

I attached an image of the Red Caboose HO model as an example.  They also do one with an orange body and black door.  Did the two versions first appear at the same time or at different times?

Much appreciated!

McGinnis became president of the NH in April, 1954, and he was the “mover” who started the new paint schemes, so some point in time after that.

 

Peter Ness’ web site has more info

Search the page for “McGinnis” and you’ll find some more dates as applied to specific series.

Smokebox did decals for the orange one. http://smokeboxgraphics.com/decalspre2k.html

The instructions cover some of that info I think.

List,

I would like to purchase one of Mr Hamsmith’s Burlington FM-11 flat car kits but I’m in the People’s Republic of Canada and he only ships to US addresses.  SO, if anyone has one unbuilt kit that they’d like to sell me and ship to the Great White North, please send me a message OFF LIST.   The email is

Thanks!

Interestingly I photographed one of these cars in work service on CN near Blue River BC in 2004.  They definitely had a long life.  I'll have to dig up those photos.

Re: Need broadside photo of OSL #3029-54 short caboose #3029-54

Looks just like a Union Pacific CA class caboose.  You may have an easier time finding a broadside photo of one of those.  The photo I have of a UP CA class caboose is just like the OSL photo, not a true broadside.

Cool to see a Canadian Northern car in a 1926 image.

 

As far as the inflammable placard, it might be in regard to another load in this car. Especially if this is carrying LCL.

I'll bet you didn't know maple sugar could burst into flames. Probably good for pancakes flambé.

Hey Bob,  Here is a photo of an OSL wood caboose I hope you can use.  It is not a broadside view, but is not a full 3/4 view either.  The side boards do show up nicely, though.

Car built in 1923? Build date is a little fuzzy on my monitor.

Presumably, the INFLAMMABLE placard is left over from some other load in that car.  Or, did I miss the tongue-in-cheek nature of the original post?

From the photo date I would think these crates had knocked-down military vehicles or parts.

Every year the San Jacinto Model Railroad Club has November Open Houses – but Covid…. So we are virtual this year. You can view some of our Houston layouts at http://sanjacmodeltrains.org/Fall-Layout-Tour.html          . Some layouts are just beginning, some are virtually complete. For this group that likes scratch building, look at Barry Bogs F scale layout – virtually every loco and car is scratchbuilt along with structures. If you like detailed scenery – Cliff Cheeseman’s is hard to beat. Gil Freitag was one of the first to initiate operations in Houston, and his layout has been featured in MR 3-4 times. My layout is in the group as well.
