The Rio Grande did have very similar cars that were most likely leased from the DPC during WWII. Soon after the war they apparently were sent to the ARR.

Well, Garth, all of the RRs for which Accurail is issuing painted and
lettered models did own steel gondolas of some description . Beyond
that, ACL, GM&O, and C&NW are correct. SP, C&O, GN, MP, PRR, D&RGW,
and P&WV definitely are not. The T&P cars, built a decade earlier,
were similar but not identical. D&H owned some similar cars but with
lower sides. As usual, caveat emptor.

The SP lettering is definitely bogus; SP never had any gondolas more than vaguely like this. I would not even call it a stand-in for SP. (Unless Dennis has some data for us, which will be a big surprise for me <g> -- and I don't mean marketing data.)

"Has anyone seen the [Life-Like of Canada] Fowler box car made for

Yes - I was rather disappointed in it, although the Simplex bolster
trucks fill a definite need for them in HO. Here's a side-by-side of
the Life-Like, and Westerfield models.

The Life-Like model seems to have dropped off the market.

Intermountain endorsement

ed_mines
 

It's been a couple of years since I ordered from Intermountain and they
were very anxious to please.

They sold me a lot of sprues of parts very inexpensively, something
like 50 cents a sprue. The ends of USRA gons are very useful.

Let's not write them off - they're on of the few companies still coming
out with new injection molded cars.

What about that new gon from Accurail?

Has anyone seen the P2K Fowler box car made for Canada? Any updates on
Don Valentine's version of that car?

Hi everyone,

Just joined the group, thought I'd give a little bit of intro
before
getting to a question.

Though born and raised in North America, I've only recently taken
up a
serious interest in our railroads, and have been learning all I
can,
having taken a special interest in electric operations, the
railways
of British Columbia (where I live), and especially, railroading in
the
Piedmont Carolinas, and even more specifically, the Piedmont &
Northern (and the railways with which it interchanged). And this
all
in 1950 or so, because that way I can accurately model electric,
diesel and steam in the Piedmont.

I have a friend locally who introduced me to the STMFC website and
has
been teaching me about all manner of detail of North American
railroading. Freight-specifically, I've been discovering my
interests
to be especially centred on boxcars. Still learning a lot, but I've
already found a few early favourites.

Modelling-wise, I work in TT scale - that was my scale when
modelling
European prototypes, and since my interests on this side of the
ocean
are mainly those that would require scratchbuilding in any scale,
staying with TT doesn't make things any more difficult (an aside on
scratchbuilding: I like it, because that way I can do things
exactly
to the standards that I want!)

As a first question, I would ask whether anyone might be able to
point
me in the direction of photos of Piedmont & Northern freight cars -
specifically the 1100-series boxcars, as well as photos of freight
cars taken in Greenville, Greenwood and Spartanburg, SC, taken in
1950.

Cheers,
Frank Valoczy
