It is a nice shot, but the tease is the PMcK&Y hopper partial to right.  Pretty late for those reporting marks.

Ryan Mendell of National Scale Car is working on the M-55s. I believe he is doing a full kit aside from the end castings. I am sure a variety of decals will be coming from other sources.

Even with its very low mounted bottom door track the Yougstown door still is a 5/6/5-Short. Along with the ends, the color scheme makes for an interesting, well-travelled Eastern box car.

Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919) organized the H. C. Frick Coke Company in 1871. The company was to become one of the largest coke-producing firms in the world. He sold this product to Andrew Carnegie, and became a millionaire by age 30.

Frick also became chairman of the Carnegie Steel Company, and played a major role in the formation of the giant U.S. Steel manufacturing concern. He also financed the construction of the Pennsylvania Railroad and the Reading Company.

Without any evidence, I think that is one of the AS&W crop cars.  I have photos of similar cars on other area RRs.

I wonder if these coils are for can stock.

 

BTW, the Reading gondola has an 8-1937 journal repack stencil. It’s also wearing original lettering applied shortly after the corporate name change from P&R to Reading. This photo inspired the lettering on my F&C Reading gondola.

Any insights into what uses these coils would have been for?

 

Any translation of the writing?

 

Nice RDG gon, BTW!

Steve;

 

Thanks for the input.  I hope I can figure out their destination someday, which was likely on the P&WV, since I have never seen loads like that originating in the vicinity.

 

Continental Can might be an option.

My guess would be (based on Reading Gons) they could be coils produced by Carpenter Steel, located on the Reading main just West of Reading, PA.  Drive by there on a somewhat regular basis.

David;

I think so, too.

Anything you care to add on P&WV is of great interest. I am slowly working my way thru the P&WV freight car fleet for a presentation requested by folks that are fans, but don't know much.

I find their fleet fascinating.

And on another tangent, the third pic seems to show P&WV's 1920s project to rebuild their 1905CD hoppers.

Re: [Espee] Photos: S.P. Boxcar 84993 / route cards

Eric Hansmann
 

I’ve applied route cards, placards, and remnants to many freight cars in my fleet. Here’s a blog post with details and images. 

Tony Thompson’s blogposts about these details inspire the work. I would have hardly given them much notice on prototype images had I not read Tony’s posts. 

I model 1926 when many freight cars had wood sheathing, so these details become more important to reflect the prototype.
