I honestly don't care what material, but please give us a pin to attach the thing to the carbody! Forget the hose, let the modeler choose which mfrs part they want to use.

She's right, it's shall, but you should shell out to get this done, so the rest of us can shell out
cash in your direction.

I'd prefer brass, like Mont. But preferably, both, plastic and brass available.

Re: Air hose bracket and air hose part

Schuyler Larrabee
 

I had not thought about the idea of a mounting pin, but I like it. It should be maybe 3/32" to 1/8"
long, which is kind of long, but it's much easier to cut something shorter than to cut it longer.
It should also be off the top of the part of the bracket which is applied to the underside of the
floor, so it can fit into a hole drilled into the floor to receive it. Others might have a notion
of what diameter for the pin, and therefore drill size for the receiving hole, would be good. It
probably also ought to be 1/16" back from the end face of the car, so as to have a significant
amount of "meat" in the car's material that it will not break off by breaking through the car's end.
The lever formed by the hose may not be long, but lever action is very strong.

Re: Air hose bracket and air hose part

William Keene <wakeene@...>
 

Joe & Company...

As long as we are giving personal opinions... I concur with the
mounting post suggestion. Another choice would be a longer mounting
part on the bracket that we can cut to required length and then drill
for our own mounting pin.

And I agree that perhaps only the bracket, sans hose, would do just
fine for me also. I like the flexible hoses as they tend to... well...
flex... and not break.

As for material... brass... plastic... titanium (?!?)... whatever... is
OK with me. Number one on my list would be plastic, then brass.
Titanium is way down the preference list as it is just too difficult to
drill.

Tony,

Now that the Cocoa meeting didn't happen, I am at a loss as to how to proceed.
Lots of data done independently, but now what? I was hoping for a spirited
discussion to get a direction and limits.

Maybe the best bet is to publish to group for comment.

Re: Air hose bracket and air hose part

 

I'd prefer brass, like Mont. But preferably, both, plastic
and brass available.
To be honest, I'd rather see white metal than brass. It's much easier to
shape and make the air hose droop right. And It's generally almost a durable
as brass. Again, a personal opinion.

A most interesting image. For those using IE7, you can easily zoom in on
images now. Hold down the CTRL key and tap the + key to zoom in
incrementally.

Beyond the boxcars are a bunch of gondolas, then crates of assorted sizes
and more gondolas. By zooming in, you can see these are the older high side
Erie gons loaded with crated goods.

I wonder what's in the crates and where they are headed.

casting would be my first choice, engineering plastic a close
second and an etched brass bracket, if practical, my third.

Anyone can point out a problem. The real talent is with the
person who can solve it. Unfortunately I must admit to being the
prior.

Subject: [STMFC] Air hose bracket and air hose part

I actually had a little time to do some modeling tonight, and
spent the
better part of an hour fabricating trainline air hose
brackets and air hoses
from Brass strip, wire and Kadee air hoses for my Athearn
SFRD RR-30. I
really wish someone with make a nice after-market part for
these (The RR-30
is different than the norm anyway due to the Duryea
underframe). Lots of
mfg's make the hoses but no one to my knowledge makes the
bracket also. I
have fabricated some from Styrene also per Ted C's articles.
Branchline's
are nice in their boxcar kits but a little fragile. If there
are aftermarket
parts out there I would love to know.
OK, I am off my soapbox.

Denny, jump in here any time.

I believe the part needs to be brass to assure it will have the
necessary strength to survive the rigors of normal operation.

Could one of the currently available brass air hoses be used with
an additional part, the bracket, made of etched brass? Freestates
are you listening?

Regardless of the solution it needs to be durable. A brass
casting would be my first choice, engineering plastic a close

CB&Q 70-ton triple hoppers

asychis@...
 

Hi Guys,

I am interested in finding information and possibly a photo or two of CB&Q
70-ton triple hoppers 170490-170499, built at Havelock in 1949. These were
the last 10 in a group of 500 HT-10 hoppers. They were built with roller
bearing trucks and painted orange with blakc lettering to differentiate them from
the other 490 cars (at least that's what it says in Burlington Bulletin 35,
"The Q in the Coal Fields").

Thanks for any help on this subject.
