The Pennsylvania Railroad was looking for a replacement for their ageing fleet of B60b baggage cars and built ten of these twin-door replacements. They classed them as Mail Storage cars. I believe only one was painted with the passenger stripes. The cars had steam and signal lines as well as marker brackets:

Almost a whole day since a post.  I'd better come up with something.

Here's Rocky again on a handsome old express reefer.

 

Got any Pullman passenger cars that say Pullman on them please.

I'll bet some GIs were a bit disappointed when they were promised a ride in a real Pullman car and found out these box cars were their 'golden charriots' for the next couple of days!

And a fine looking coaling tower along with the scene at that!

Gotta show the last Pullman cars that weren't able to be posted on Sunday after Imgur crashed Ed.  The Northern Pacific Loewy paint scheme, ...Beautiful!

Probably would have been cheating, as the lettering is rather small on these.

Intermountain is releasing the F7 A,B locomotives that I've been searching for 7 years.  Sure hope the paint matches MicroTrains.  Spendy but the pre-order is now concreteYes

 

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

This application was Fast-n-Final that was applied about five years ago.  Apparently that stuff weathers itselfIndifferent

With the bridge placement revisal, the abutment wall needs a little tweakHuh?

 

More concrete evidence please.

I've been feeling like a thing and a luggerLaugh, Ed and Kevin, from alot of repetitious up and down off the floor down the hall.  Guess I'm still trying to believe I'm still a young buck herePirate...NOT! Laugh

 

I'm thinking prototypical photo's should be acceptable here, when in conjunction with the model at handYes

 

And here's the models.

These model cranes were at the National Model Railroad Show, that only comes through town every 7 to 9 years in Saint Paul.  And awaiting for the next oneStick out tongue

Just love cranesSmile

 

More things that lift, put things into place, or things that go up and down please.

Can't be 100% sure, but I believe the crane in your real world shots is a Manitowoc model 777.

Thanks Kevin, I'll bet your probably right.  Just getting to learn the types of locomotives better, I've no idea on cranes.  The crane company was Wells though.

 

Have always enjoyed the bridge building hobby, but check out this guy's model.

  Article courtesy of Twin Cities Pioneer Press

Wouldn't that make a great bridge for an HO layout?  Bless that old guy's heart.  Gonna have to drive up there and see that one.

 

More lifters please.

 

TF

PS   Sure enjoyed seeing that beautiful ore loader model in comparison to the Real McCoy Ed.  Was that a kit, or did you scratch build that?
