Re: Caboose A vs. B End Orientation Question

It appears the orientation of the brake cylinder was unchanged.  The cylinder is concealed by the battery boxes, but photos in the Burlington Waycars book of cars with the boxes and wagon wheels removed show the cylinder pointing to the short end.

SEEKING A SUNSHINE KIT

WILLIAM PARDIE
 

I am looking for a Sinshine kit for a St Louis San Francisco stock car in the 47800 series.  This car was a topic in this list about a month ago.  Hopefullysomeone has this kit in their "Probably Will Never Biild " stash (which we all have).

Here is an interesting image. Shows Rutland 2700 flatcar with two short Freuhauf trailers, being delivered in Des Moines IA. I don’t have a date, but would say circa 1920.

Nelson,

I can't speak for the CB&Q; but Wabash cars had the brake cylinder pointing toward the short (cupola) end.

I’m working on two waycars (Burlington usage), and I need to know which end is considered the A and B end where the cupola is offset from center. Specifically, I’m building two CB&Q NE-10 steel waycars as modified in 1945 by blanking out one window, moving the toilet, and adding a truck generator, battery box, wagon wheel antenna. These cars were updated with Ajax power hand brakes at the same time. My question has to do with the orientation of the brake cylinder, control valve, and air reservoir, i.e. does the brake cylinder point toward the long end or the short (cupola) end.

Milwaukee road caboose interior color...?

Brad Andonian
 

Fellas,
I am readying an O scale Overland 24' Milwaukee wood caboose.   Per images, it appears the roof is black, the sides freight car brown and the underbody black.   What is the appropriate interior color?

Thank you,

Brad Andonian

Tim:

They look like the PRR 70-ton "Crown" truck, kissing cousin to the USRA 70-t Andrews.  Consistent with the CAPY in the pic (and ORER).

I looked at these closely when doing the research for the PRR gon book, and it was clear they had some major mods to make this work. The blades going through the floor made relocation of some of the brake equipment necessary.

Re: Tank Car handrail stantions

I forgot to mention that plastic stanchions of nearly the same size and shape are available from Tichy on their 3007 tank car set.

Thanks

If building a tank car what handrail stantions are available?   I see Precision Scale on eBay; however, do not know part number to purchase.  Do not see them listed in Precision Scale Co. Catalog No 5.  Are there others besides Precision Scale available?

The Cullen-Friestedt Company, while the corporate offices were located in Chicago, had its plant in the former Love Brothers casting and specialty machinery plant in Aurora, Illinois.  It was served by the “Alley Job” which was covered in the BRHS Burlington Bulletin No. 51.  In the article there is a picture of a Model 30 logo cast into the frame bed.
