Hello,

This is am interesting photo. Lets assume 90 pound rail, 39' long, which would weigh 1200 pounds. There are 12 men, lifting each rail out of the car, roughly 100 pounds per man, if all lifting evenly.

could ber a long day, 100 rails later.

Not to much detail on the flat car but a good shot of the crane.

Description: "S.P. and S. Freight Derrick, heavy work. Large iron beam crane loading boiler components onto flatcar."

I think this is an unloading scene.

Re: Paint Booth

I use a Paasche paint booth that’s 22 in. wide and 18 in. tall at the face. That’s a little small for painting with a rattle can (larger spray pattern and makes a mess in the paint booth), but I use an airbrush for most painting, so it’s not a problem. MR published plans for building a paint booth that’s larger than mine in the August 1983 issue, if you want to build your own.

PRR and PRR-controlled lines had over 49,000 cars in Classes XG, XH, and XL with left-opening doors.  Maybe it's your railroad that has "wrong way" doors.  That term belongs in the dustbin of history with "outside braced boxcar".

Not only door-and-a-half, but door-and-a-half Wagner doors.

Is the smaller size because corn syrup is dense?

The "he" at Des Plaines Hobbies was Ron Sebastian whom we tragically lost late last summer.

Is his widow, Susan,, running the store now?  Don't know but she has always been as pleasant

to work with as Ron always was.

Well, at least nobody’s smoking that I can see. The baggage car is UP maybe and suggests a branch line location.

Pierre,

Sorry, but I don't have one, but the numbers should be 40.12 for the SP 40' DD in 1936 scheme and 40.13 for the SP 40' DD in 1948 scheme.

Take care,

Dennis Korn

Ray, you do know you have Engine House Service located in Green Bay.  They should be able to order you anything they don't have in stock.

Re: Paint Booth

Tim O'Connor
 


I bought a galvanized metal fold-out booth with a squirrel cage blower many years ago - I think it
was made by Paasche but I don't recall exactly who made it. It's large enough for most everything
I can think of. Getting enough light into the booth is important but now with tiny cheap LED lamps
that's not an issue. Squirrel cage fans are the best for moving lots of air.

    I lived for a while in Eugene, OR and seem to remember that saw dust was used in furnaces there.  Can't remember the time frame however.
