The St Louis Transportation Museum has most of the drawings. Some are cataloged and some aren't. Ed Hawkins (in this group) is a volunteer there.  Ed maintains a large database of the drawings and will usually provide you with a drawing list for specific car orders. 

That list is the tool you need for telling the museum want they need to pull or copy for you.

I'm looking for the 1926 UP ACF built ballast hoppers w/ Rodgers dump mechanism - UP class BA-50-2 [now HK-50-2], #85000-499, UP spec #64-A. In the 1928 CarBldrCyc, there is a CB&Q 50T ballast hopper which compares favorably with the earlier Uncle Pete. IRM has at least one of the CB&Q in their collection.
 
I model 1935 Uncle Pete in O & the straight side BA-50-2 would be a lot easier to build vs the offset top of the BA-50-1.
 
Anyone used the Barringer/Mercantile ACF collection?
 
Thanks for any help!

Steve, 

Thank you for your efforts on the Rapido ATSF RDCs. I too would like to have a pair, but I doubt that they ever made it to Gridley. Although they would have been an enjoyable fan trip adventure out and back on the branch. 

Yes. These are well north of my "fan trip" budget. 

BTW... I believe that the ATSF 1937 AAR boxcars (class BX-27) were equipped with Duyea underframes. Is IM adding these to the models being offered? 

Cheers,

I'd appreciate it if there was much more communication between the specialists in the field -like there are many here online- and a manufacturer like Intermountain.
It's the details that count. Why not contact IM with tips and hints how to refine a car, so it becomes an almost perfect model?
It costs just as much to create a monster as it does to create a stunning interpretation of the real thing (take Kadee or Tangent for example).

Slightly out of the scope of this group but just to illustrate how things can go terribly wrong:
Rapido has introduced many different versions of their ultimate RDC's the last three years.
For the WP RDC-2 I offered them help and sent them a picture of the real thing.
They didn't need any help.
Result is their otherwise beautifully crafted WP RDC-2 (with barrel headlight and raised numberboards à la WP) now features a full size grab iron ladder, which the real thing never had.
Just to say. More communication between the model RR aces and the manufacturers would be appreciated.

1) This is another “somebody ought to…” post. Dude, please shelve your expectations that somehow someone has an obligation to you or anyone else in the “modeling world”.

Were the tie downs strong enough for most loads? Some of the other versions of the Tangent gondolas lack these tie downs so I wonder if some railroads did not find these useful or strong enough?

Re: Poultry Car

Douglas Harding
 

And I’m puzzled by the comment that the attendant road the car to keep the stove going. The attendant’s, actually caretaker, duties were to care for the birds, to feed, water, collect eggs, and care for the birds. Even remove dead birds as needed. If the birds gained weight during transit the caretaker might get a bonus. Poultry cars, like stockcars, were wide open for maximum ventilation. They even had special vents on the roof that could be open to enhance air flow. If too warm birds can smother or get heat stressed. The cars were also equipped with canvas covers that could be hung on the sides in bad weather. The stove was for the convenience of the caretaker, it had nothing to do with caring for the birds.

I checked a couple photos of the NKP 15000s from rr-fallenflags and I have questions.  Were the improved Youngstown doors a replacement?  Is that a taller door with lowered door track like NP?  And if some cars got an under-door sill reinforcement, was that later in life?  The car shown now in the Intermountain site is a round-corner version of this car, perhaps one of the last ones built.

This has been extremely educational.  I learned from Doug that cars were loaded in Oskaloosa (where I was born). traveled east on the M&StL through Henry County, IA (where I live now) and were also loaded in Morning Sun (19 miles from current home in New London).  That is what makes groups like this great.  I am also first generation off the farm and the first generation in my own family that hasn't killed a live chicken.  A neighbor to the south keeps chickens and the neighbor to the north is the BNSF main line.  Nah, it won't happen.
