Re: Ghost White Toner Again

Eric Bergh
 

Garth,
I am using the Ghost cartridge on my HP Color LaserJet MFPM477fdw and like it. I did have to increase the density settings to get a better image. I use Tango Papa clear decal paper and set the printer for "Transparency".
FWIW, to change the density, below is the info I got from the folks at Ghost.
-Eric Bergh

"to set the density for each toner channel please set up the printer as a network printer.

Therefore you have to connect via Network. Once the printer has been connected via network it has a IP Address. This will be shown in the printerdisplay or on the network status page. This page can be printed from the reports menu of the printer.

 

1.       Enter the printer IP Address into a webbrowser (ie Chrome)

2.       Go to system

3.       Go to density

4.       Choose +5 for all channels to get the best transfer result. (Standart is 0)

5.       Once the settings are saved the printer will also use these settings for USB printing.

 

I hope this helps!

 Cheers,

Curt,

Yes, WM did have Duryea underframes. I ignored this on purpose, since were were only talking about body styles.

CP was not on the list because their cars had a radial Murphy roof, something Atlas did not tool.

I should have left out the D&H cars because they had 4/5 ends, which Atlas did not tool. All had welded underframes (as did the UP's single car), and one group had welded bodies as well. I was aware of the short left side ladders, but this is a minor detail.

I will repost the list shortly, but will wait until tomorrow in case more corrections come in.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

In the CNW photo  the trucks appear to be Two-Level Dalmans. The resin trucks with the F&C kit appear to be Two-Level Dalmans. If I am correct what not use Tahoe's Two-Level Dalmans?

Garth, I don't have that particular HP printer, but I think I know one if not two people who do.  David Bott is one, and he may chime in (he is currently riding the Zephyr from Reno to Chicago).  If he doesn't, I'll check with another Dave.

Jack, this has been addressed in prior posts, but the answer is no.  I routinely swap the black and white cartridges with no downside.

Yes, I did mean the Soo cars. Dennis Storzek found one that was not, but most apparently were, as well as the 10-0 IH 1937 cars the Soo bought, which also had the flat, lap seam roof as built.  (at least as far as I understand various threads on the Soo list).

Not sure about other roads.

Done initially by Bill Dulmaine of Yankee Clipper was the variation w/Murphy ends and flat roof owned by the CGW and NdeM. NdeM cars rode on Andrews trucks. I take dot Mr. Dulmaine once on the phone why he did not offer the NdeM kit and he said the decals would have been required so i bought an extra kit and used Walther decals that had multi colored emblem. Sunshine eventually offered the configuration also.

Reminder there is an excellent and comprehensive book about these cars with practically every known photo know to humankind in the book.

From Steve Winter: "Many of those cars were rebuilt with new roofs later"

Really, which ones please?

They were and they were offered as such by Sunshine in HO. They also had some other “oddities” such as 2 rung ladders not eh left side of the sides, instead of 2 grab irons.

I have some cast metal underframes that seem to match the Athearn heavy duty flat.  I have the impression they were done by MDC.

The Red Ball kit is of a riveted car, not welded.  That, of course, is a good thing--more variety.  I think it (the cast sides, anyway) matches well to an NYC car, but it's been awhile.

For the Athearn car, another problem is the truck centers.  On the prototype, the axle spacing is equal for all four axles of each truck--not so on the Athearn.  When I worked on mine, I gave up and built a new span bolster--something I recommend to cover this problem and the ones Tony pointed out.

Hi Ron,
 
I bought one (and an F28 well hole flat) at the NE Proto meet in Farmington in June.  I haven’t started it yet, but if it is anything like the P&LE F-7 they did in their hands-on clinic, it should be very nice.  The six wheel trucks for that F-7 were good looking one-piece castings that were sturdy and seemed to roll well with the Code 88 wheels I brought for the clinic – Kadee I think.

Now for some model questions -- I noticed the F&C kit for the F34 heavy duty flatcar (kit 8470) is not on their website at present.  But there's one on eBay.

Has anybody built one?  Is it sturdy enough to operate, specifically the trucks?

I read the TKM article about building one from an Athearn, but it doesn't mention the F&C model.

Re: F&C PRR F34 heavy duty flatcar

You're right about the quality of the website being commensurate with the kit instructions.....

The fact that the deck plates are separate, and not welded together, is an indication that these are a lot heavier than, say, a typical gondola floor.  They'd have to be, if you were really expecting any significant vertical upward loads from the tie-downs.

My personal desires along the lines of a heavy duty flatcar are much more along the lines of one of those GSC depressed-center flatcars, but the four-truck flat deck one is probably second after that.

One question I have about "Ghost White" is do you need to dedicate a printer just to it?

Friends,

It is time for a new printer. I have pretty much settled on an HP Laser Jet Pro M254dw, which according to the Ghost White web site is compatible with the white toner M254.

Do any of you have experience with this printer using Ghost White to make decals? Any other suggestions?

Yours Aye,

Steve,

Don't know. But like I said, these cars seem to be "more-or-less" correct for the indicated prototypes, which outside of resin is probably the best we're going to get.

The Soo cars were a solid 5 inches wider (IW) than the 1932 standard. Does the Atlas body capture that, or are they 8-9 like the standard would call for?

Granted, that's a minor compromise.

Many of those cars were rebuilt with new roofs later - Murphy diagonal panels. If the Atlas body is a 8-9 IW, not sure how easy modelling that conversion would be. I suppose one could narrow a roof and hide the seam under the running boards.
