Does anyone know what body style of the atlas 1932 ARA car I need for Missouri Pacific prototype? There used to be a description of the body styles on the atlas website but I can’t find it.

Brian if you find it please publish it as I would like to know as well

Wasn't this question answered just last April in msg 172473?

It took maybe 8 seconds to find by searching Messages for "Atlas 1932".

Thanks Dave.

It took me a bit longer than your eight seconds. Yes. I confess that I am perhaps the world’s second worst “researcher” on the www.

Ugh. Thanks Dave. Don’t always think to check the web interface for the Group when I am on the phone.

Don’t fret!

My memory is shorter than the consist of a mixed train serving a soon to be abandoned dirt-ballasted branch line.

To find “old” Atlas stuff (in general)

From main page ( https://shop.atlasrr.com/ ):

-       Production -> Archive

-       Drop down scale (HO/N/O) -> pick type (“Trainman” vs. “Masters”, or as appropriate)

-       Scroll thru list to find car you are interested in, click on that link

Modeling the AAR_ARA Standard Steel Boxcars.pdf “ is an excellent power point presentation done by Bill Welch in 2018.  It was available as a download from Bill, but don’t know where it might be available now.  I did not see it on the Real STMFC site in the files.

Yes, Bill left instructions and handling of his estate is in process. But as with all things estate, it may be some time before matters can be settled.

 

The pdf of Bill’s PowerPoint on modeling the AAR ARA boxcars was shared by Bill via his dropbox account back in 2018. The pdf is 98mb, far too large to share via email. I don’t know if anyone has shared it via their website.

 

A family member does have Bill’s computers and access to some of Bill’s online accounts. I don’t know if this includes access to Bill’s dropbox account. Accounts that are password protected are sometimes lost if those passwords are not shared or passed on. My understanding is Bill did not share his passwords.
