BOILER LOADS


WILLIAM PARDIE
 


We recently had a great photo of a WP flat car with a load of BIRCHFIELD boilers posted on this list.  Multiscale Digital produces thus model and Gerald Glow has the decals.  Multiscale also offers a Kewanee boiler.  Was there any lettering on this boiler when shipped?

Thanks in advance:

Yes many did ship with signage or lettering. Here is a great gallery from the Kewanee Historical Society with several boiler loads on rail cars.

Hi Bob,
 
Nice photo! This is an international shipment, these CNO&TP flat cars will end up going to Mexico!

Multiscale Digital also makes the finest scale model (my opinion) of the GE Turboencabulator that has ever been produced!

I have a photo of one of these on a raised-center flat car behind a Penn Central cab forward taken somewhere in Utah.

With a shipping weight of only 213 pounds I doubt that a flat car was required. I did notice that dimensions were not given in the handbook data … so … the Turboencabulator might be a large item of rather light material. Thinking about this … a flat car might have been necessary. 

Would a PC cab-forward in Utah be in pool service and running off miles to balance the sharing? 

Please post the photo!

All-

Isn’t this discussion a month (actually 23 days) early???

Being so light, what would happen if it was run on a layout in a basement pressurized to avoid having to have the llally columns supporting the house above?   Would the car float along with the helium tank cars?

Penn Central Class L-6 electrics were cab-forwards.
