Unless these old eyes are playing tricks, it looks like the reporting marks are MEC.

Tim;

It is, indeed. And a very nice picture. This is also a rare picture, as it
shows a pretty-much unchanged X26, before the big rebuild campaign of the
mid-30's, where they got new roofs, doors, and etc.

Thank you so much for providing that!

Re: Intermountain bulkhead flat cars

bnpmodeler
 

Tim and list;

This is interesting news that I had not heard yet. According to the EL
Freight/Passenger Color Guide, the Erie first converted two of its
Greenville Car Co.-built 8050-8099 series flats in October 1956 (required
STMFC date range :) to bulkhead cars for sheetrock hauling; the EL followed
up with two more in September 1961, making the four car series numbers
7000-7003.

The IM art shows the bulkheads to be supported by some sort of open
structure; the photo in the color guide depicts what appears to be closed
framework or supports of some sort... It will be interesting to see the
exact details of the model bulkhead...

Thanks for the heads up on this model!

Are any of the announced bulkhead flats (B&O/NYC/EL) accurate?
They are modified 53'6" AAR 70 ton flat cars.

Brass Replacement Brakewheel for PRR X29 in HO scale?

Does anyone know if PSC or anyone else makes a brass brake wheel for a PRR X29 with the vertical staff brake wheel? Part number would help. Scale is HO. Thanks.

Stan Rydarowicz NWX reefer kit

Jim & Lisa Hayes <jimandlisa97225@...>
 

Stan asked me to post this notice. If you have one of Stan's NWX 600-899
rebuilt steel reefer kits, check the fit between the sides and ends. If
yours doesn't fit properly, contact Stan for replacement ends. With my kit,
when I matched the bottom of the side with the end, the top side/end fit was
off. I received replacement ends today and the fit is fine.

Stan does not have email. You can contact him at 330-799-5321 or

by this Fall. He has some interesting kit-bash style reefer kits.

Yep. The NYC is the only one I recognized off the top of my head as
accurate. I am still at work so I don't have my RMJ ref material for those
cars.

Re: Intermountain bulkhead flat cars

In comparing the itty bitty pictures on the website with photos of the B&O and NYC cars, it looks to me that the drawing is closer to an NYC car. I'm basing this on the size of the triangular void visible in the bulkhead bracing and the flat steel reinforcing that defines the bottom of that triangle. It'd sure be nice to see something a little more concrete. Or styrene, in this case.

Correct. NYC 496000-496299 built at the NYC Avis, PA shops in 1930.

Re: Intermountain bulkhead flat cars

Intermountain was working from provided B&O drawings and photographs. I met with their toolmaker twice in person to iron out details. So I have some confidence they will be accurate for B&O.

I believe that 5th Ave Car Shops included decals "For Hide Loading" with their 6-panel single sheath Milwaukee box cars. Decals are not available separately.

Re: Wheelsets - what manufacturing materials?

Brian Chapman <cornbeltroute@...>
 

Doug,

Thank you much for your reply. Do you have photos available that reveal the construction and assembly of your wheelsets?

I'm seeking information for a TT scale project. So, may I ask, do you perform such work for out-of-house projects? I'm attempting to get a feel for all the options and alternatives that exist.

Thanks much,

Brian

Brian,
 
Our wheelsets are machined from brass bar stock. The wheels and axles are pressed together with a plastic insulator on one wheel.
