Cable Load

Caption:

"In 1962, Southern Railway celebrated an exceptionally large shipment of telephone cable with a photo shoot. 156,000 feet of Superior Cable were shipped from Hickory, North Carolina, to #Alaska. An unnamed model is smiling in this posed shot, despite her hooded parka and the 90 degree Carolina weather.

Southern carried the cable as far as East St. Louis, Missouri. It was then shipped over other rail lines to Seattle, Washington. The cable traveled by steamboat to Anchorage, Alaska, where it was put back on railcars and traveled about forty miles northeast to the city of Palmer. The customer, Matanuska Telephone Association, is still in business today and brings telephone service to rural South-Central Alaska."

Caption:

"Nearly seventy years ago—on Thursday, September 15, 1949—a Norfolk & Western train made a stop at the Streitmann Biscuit Company near Cincinnati, Ohio.

The bakery produced more than 100 different varieties of crackers and cookies, including honey graham crackers, Opera Crème cookies, and Zesta saltine crackers. By 1951, production amounted to 1,321 carloads of outbound traffic annually, which was either delivered by N&W to its destination or originated on the N&W for delivery by other railroads."

IIRC the minimum order is $30 so you may need to recruit some people to fill out your order. This is fun and easy build to get to a GTW car. Richard Hendrickson had an article in RMJ on building one of the cars using a homemade half door before the little kit was available. Black Cat has the correct decal set.

You might check with Des Plaines to see if they have this conversion kit in stock.

Another Nice find from Bob,

if you look closely on the second car, it is a ATSF car with the "BUY WAR BONDS" slogan to the left of the door. I was unable to read the road number on my small screen

Hi Jesus,
 
Looks to me like the the AT&SF car’s number is xx514 or maybe xxx514.  The digit immediately before the “514” might be a “3,” but I’m not sure.

A quick look at the Sunshine flyers page shows that this would be one of the 368 out of 1,535  USRA rebuit 40' box cars in the Bx36 class, so, the first three numbers would be 148000 through 149000's.   To bad the end reporting marks are completely obscured by dirt.

I suspect you’ve nailed.  What I thought might be a three could easily be an eight.  Those two numbers are often difficult to distinguish at that angle and resolution.

According to Richard Hendrickson, Santa Fe applied the Buy War Bonds to about 200 BX-36 box cars at the Argentine shops between September and December of 1942. Then the company decided to do 200 more in early 1943, however only 168 additional ones were done by the end of the year. A memo on March 11, 1947, said to removed that slogan as soon as possible. However, capturing those 368 cars empty heading through Argentine was not an easy task and some may have lasted into the early 1950s.  Richard said all were BX-36 (Sunshine to the rescue). In the Santa Fe Painting and Lettering guide he includes all of the numbers for these cars, 148912 or 149512 being the only options I see on his list for this photo.

According to the list given in the Sunshine instructions, the 148912 would have the Chief slogan and the 149512 is “incomplete.”  However, the painting and lettering guide says the 148497 was Grand Canyon in a photo while the Sunshine instructions say it was in Scout slogan. A photo of 148516 and 148533 shows El Capitan while Sunshine says they are Scout. Both could be accurate as when a car was repainted it could have received a different slogan.

I like the fact that the Santa Fe car still has “Buy War Bonds” on it at this late date.

N&W Boxcar 47302 (Round Roof)

Caption:

"Nearly seventy years ago—on Thursday, September 15, 1949—a Norfolk & Western train made a stop at the Streitmann Biscuit Company near Cincinnati, Ohio.

The bakery produced more than 100 different varieties of crackers and cookies, including honey graham crackers, Opera Crème cookies, and Zesta saltine crackers. By 1951, production amounted to 1,321 carloads of outbound traffic annually, which was either delivered by N&W to its destination or originated on the N&W for delivery by other railroads."

Re: Standard Car Co.??

This little kit is very clever. It includes two versions of the half door, one with the metal brace to match position of the brace on the Accrual door. The second door version has the brace in the correct version for the GTW car which requires removing the brace of the Accrual door and replacing the brace with one that is in the kit. Also included are the correct triangular gusset plates—see Richard's article for prototype photo—and small door hardware parts. Tooling is very fine.

I agree with Bill, It makes an interesting car and Bill is also correct with the Black Cat decals.  I did this a few years ago.

Round roof double door boxcar

Following up on the previous thread, I have a W&R brass model of this car, the flush roof 40' double door box.  I saw recently that there are a few custom painted versions on eBay, all painted NP.  I think W&R did a lot of Pacific Northwest stuff, the way Overland did UP stuff, so this makes sense.

My question is, did W&R ever do any other round roof versions?

Hello Ron,
 
W&R did a very nice NP prototype 40' DS truss rod box car with round roof.
But no other version of the car you mentioned, or anything close to that.
