After two false starts thanks to connectivity issues, we will try this

Tangent Scale Models is pleased to announce bulk pricing for our new ASF
70-ton A3 Ride Control truck with all metal wheels! As you are already
aware, this is a very important truck to those modeling the 1950s and later,
and was utilized under many of the new freight cars - and rebuilds - from
that era. Because of this, we would like to offer bulk pricing of our
finely-executed, free rolling trucks.

NP War Emergency Boxcar Underframe Measurements

railsnw1 <railsnw@...>
 

All,

Had a request on the NP Modellers Yahoo site for the spacing of the cross members under NP 28417 at the Northwest Railway Museum. Well climbed under the car and can provide the following. Starting at the
vertical "Z" post at the doors a cross member is attached at this point but these are the only ones that line up with a vertical. From the center line of the member at the door vertical, heading towards the ends, the centers between the members are 48" then 45" and funally the bolster at 53". If you look at a photo of the side sill you will see a single rivet that attaches the cross member to the sill.

This is based on NP 28417 which is a Pullman-Standard car and this is verified by a Pullman plate on the frame. The other car we have is NP 28129 which is also Pullman.

Hope this helps.

end? At a glance, the side seems more modern than that. What is
that beast??
I have several photos of these cars, Schuyler. They were rebuilds of
1920s ARA single sheathed box cars with new sides, doors, and roofs
on the original underframes and ends, with an extra three
corrugations added at the top of the 7/8 ends to increase their
height. L&N had a lot of them. I can supply number series and other
info if you're interested.

David,



Love those ACF welded 70T gons, and since I could use a number of your ASF A3 70T trucks, I appreciate you offering them at bulk pricing. However, I am among the increasing number of modelers who greatly prefer 0.088 semi-scale tread wheelsets - especially for open end frame hoppers, etc., where the wheels are easily seen. When might we hope to see Tangent trucks with even better looking semi-scale wheelsets?



Warm regards,

Dave Sieber

ORER Help Needed - Dec 1950 - AW 103

Andy Laurent
 

Gents,

I am searching for information on a flatcar owned by the Ahnapee & Western Railway...AW 103. It was put in service in 1949 or '50, and is referenced in an ICC report as being "in use in interchange service at the end of 1950."

The car was converted from an ex-MDT refrigerator car (and ex-AW 3000 series), and was equipped with cradles for carrying boats built in Sturgeon Bay, Wisc.

If someone has a late 1950 or early 1951 ORER and can check the A&W listing, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,
Andy Laurent

Hi Marty--Ah, but it is terribly easy if the width of the ends is correctly done. Just center the
ends on the flat ends of the
IM box and those very noticeable insets are in place.

Actually what I did was remove from the Tichy end the upper peaked and flat part, then cut the
remaining lower part
more or less down the middle, then glue in place one half so that the proper inset was visible. A
styrene filler strip of
appropriate width was than added, then the other half of the end glued in place. After
cannibalizing the top three
corrugations and the end peak from a donor end, the piece was split and attached in similar
fashion. Now all that remains
is to carve/file/sand matching contours into the styrene spacer. Far easier than carving the
ladders off the end of a
Bowser round roof boxcar! Takes a lot longer to write about than do, once the parts are gathered.

Resin kits are great, but I would rather work with the very high quality castings from IM and
Tichy. And, at least in this
case, I didn't have to wait six months from project inception to actual hands on.

Re: odd L&N boxcar

Tim O'Connor
 

The L&N rebuilt cars with 3713 cuft (same as a 1937 AAR box car) are
listed in the ORER

series 93000-94199 -- 532 cars in 1955
series 94200-95541 -- 643 cars in 1955
series 95800-97091 -- 1251 cars in 1955

I thought there was a Sunshine kit (or kits) for these L&N rebuilds.
Not so?

I have a very nice color shot of a car with the 3/7/8 end but it has
been renumbered L&N 41064.

Hi Schuyler--An L&N fan can fill in the blanks, but here is what I know. Just before the war L&N rebuilt a bunch of single sheathed boxcars. 10' IH.

Interesting to model: Intermountain 1937 AAR box on a Tichy SS frame. The ends have to be pieced together, including widening them a bit by adding a strip in the center.

I don't mean to be cynical, Al, but that is likely to be happening sooner or later as these alternative-to-the-NMRA meets happen. It is simply impossible to avoid conflicting dates. People will have to make choices.

I believe that is right on top of the C&O HS Spring Work Session in Clifton Forge on April 21st-25th?

Guys

Myself and a couple of my buds are in the process of putting together the first prototype model meet in Central Ohio.
This event, to be held April 22-24, will be at Marion Union Station in Marion, OH. Many of you are familiar with this
station as one of the hotspots of railfanning in North America. We will combine model trains with the prototype.
We have secured the station for the weekend and are in the process of lining up a block of hotel rooms as well.

Please be sure to include this event in your schedule of things to do this spring.

I will get more details out as they are available.

Please feel free to contact me if you need more information or if you would be will to do a presentation or a clinic at the
meet.

We look forward to seeing many of you at the Meet.
