STMFC members,
Just passing some new information from InterMountain's web site per an Aug. 7 update.

http://www.intermountain-railway.com/currentflyers.html

The announcement includes two new variations of their HO and N 1937 AAR box car.

1. "NSC-2" ends used by Canadian National Railway on nearly 5,000 cars. Listed in the flyer are cars numbered CN 520000-521499 built in 1945 by the National Steel Car Co. with Serves All Canada monogram and green maple leaf.

2. Deco ends and 3-panel Creco doors used on C&O 5400-5499 built by GATC in 1937. These C&O cars came with Viking roofs. Shown are two schemes, as-built with black doors and 1949 repaint with C&O for Progress steam trail. The 3-panel Creco doors also applied to C&O 5250-5399 having 4-5 Dreadnaught ends.

Several other cars are new paint schemes on the IM 1937 AAR model having 4-5 Dreadnaught ends. Reservations by Sept. 30 and an ETA of March/April 2016.

Todd Horton asked:
"How many roads had the Deco ends?"
 
One original owner (C&O) and one secondhand owner (B&O).

The only B&O photo I've seen shows a car with a very unusual 3-panel door.
Did the B&O cars use any other doors, and are there online photos of them?

I would be more excited over Buckeye ends. Then I could do an NP rebuild.
Assuming that any of these parts are available in kit form.

One original owner (C&O) and one secondhand owner (B&O).

The on-line photos I found were Rich Yoder's web site.

RY Models - C&O Boxcar

 



On the B&O, as Ben stated, they came secondhand from the C&O after they took control of the B&O. They were assigned B&O class M-25e. I assume they came with the doors applied by the C&O. The class M-25 (2nd) apparently served as a catch-all for various secondhand box cars that the B&O purchased or more likely leased starting ~1963 beyond the cut-off date for this list. So this discussion should move to the bbfcl Yahoo Group.
