I wonder if I will hear from Caboose Hobbies. I put an order in before they closed down on Broadway.

    I've had two reserved for so long I forgot and almost ordered another.  But my friendly dealer reminded me.

Good news that the deco end cars are shipping. Last time I looked at their website they’ve been listed as in production for a while.  Now maybe the C&O cars I’ve had reserved for years will arrive.

Re: Deco end

C&O had a class of 40' steel, Deco end box cars built in 1937. They were numbered 5000 - 5499.
In the mid-1960's "Chessie" era, some went to the B&O, numbered in the 167500-169576 series.
All but seven were off the roster by 1974.
While their time frame runs beyond that of this freight car group,  they were in the last decades of it.
The attached photo is of an O scale brass model of a C&O Deco end car imported by Rich Yoder in 2006.

Deco end

Now that Intermountain has released their model, I have some questions about Deco Ends. We tend to describe dreadnaught ends in technical terms and great detail (4/5, 4/4 IDE, R+3-4, etc.) Was there a proper name for Deco Ends used in advertising and the cyclopedias?? I assume the Deco Ends were manufactured/patented by a competitor of SRE and the ends were ultimately a commercial failure. Who was the manufacturer? Were these ends used on anything other than the ’37 boxcar

This item is, apparently, one version of a Universal Brake Booster that also appears on a group of Swift reefers of approximately the same vintage.  See Gene Deimling's blog at

You can see an example of this under SRLX 2768 on Protocraft's (O scale) decal web page at

 

https://www.protocraft.com/category.cfm?ItemID=892&Categoryid=21.

 

Rapido did a similar car in an earlier paint scheme, but needs this part and some other upgrades to fully match the prototype.

I've never seen one on any Soo car with a fishbelly UF, nor is it shown on the Haskell & Barker drawings of the early twenties cars (the prototype for that kit) so surmise they were only on the later cars. The only one of the 1926, 28, 29, and 30 built cars I've been able to inspect is the 1929 car at the Illinois Railway Museum, where those pix were taken.

     The caption means that the car was never delivered to the SL&U, and eventually acquired by the SLG&W.

Re: C&O 8000-9499 boxcar end diagram

Thanks Ben. Since its not the car I was thinking of, I have nothing that will help you. However, I encourage you to order the N&W drawing David has identified. This is one level deeper than the typical General Arrangement drawing, and includes enough sectional views that a 3D model can be constructed entirely from the information on that drawing, provided you can read the dimensions. The N&WHS  are a wonderful resource; fast and reasonably inexpensive for the value received.

 Attached are photos of a KCS Interim AAR boxcar I just completed.  It was built from a Speedwitch kit.  The flat finish dried less than 2 hours before packing the car and bringing it to the Twin Cities Modeler’s Retreat.  Nothing like a deadline to drive progress.

The photos were taken at the Modeler’s Retreat tonite on a module I will be using tomorrow for a scenery clinic.
