Breaking news out of Dallas: former Dallas Railway & Terminal #612/Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority #3334 will be scrapped.

McKinney Avenue Transit Authority has decided that rebuilding the car was simply too much. After receiving the car to their property in December of 2015, work began on dismantling much of the car so that an assessment could be done on what had to be done to restore the car to active service. While it was already known that most of the body would have to be fixed or replaced, removal of the floors revealed a lot of rust through the frame. The cost proved to be drastically more than what the board of directors was led to believe, so the verdict came down: scrap the car.

If anyone wants a really rough PCC, you could probably offer them maybe $10 over scrap value and have it to yourself.

How about we pool some money together and buy it? We can make it the official 1chan Clubhouse

If you have in mind somewhere under roof to park it, I'd pitch in some money just to see it saved from the torch.

Buying and moving it would be the easy part. Storing it indefinitely in such a condition that it doesn't degrade further would be more difficult. Any plans to put it back into service could take as long as they needed to; it's not like it would be going anywhere.

Anybody else ever ridden without a ticket?

I'm curious if you all can give some tips on how to train surf safely, and any advice on how to interact with railyard staff without being a menace and causing trouble. I'm a homeless enthusiast that loves to get around and I don't want to cause anyone unnecessary trouble with my presence. I just rode for my first time (CSX) and didn't have any problems but as I said, I'm curious if you all have any input.

I identified this train wrong. Thought it was going to Houston, you know I suspected it was wrong. The proper identification is; first half autoracks, second half Doublestack with K-Line, Hapag-Llyod, NYK & APL. I saw the autoracks and K-Line but nothing else. Ended up being the Golden State route to Kansas City, I realized it too late when I suddenly started going north after El Paso. Rode from Tucson AZ to Pratt Kansas before I bailed because of rain. Stayed in Pratt for two days dodging rain. Finally caught out yesterday around 4pm and arrived in KCMO at 3am. Dodge the cops in the yard for a while, ducking and hiding in bushes. Actually slept in the yard before leaving at noon today. This pic was in Lordsburg NM.

Fell asleep in the yard after dodging the bull. I couldn't figure my way out, I saw a bridge and headed for it. There was thick forest separating me from the streets, so I ducked in and went to bed. Woke up around noon and figured it out in the daylight. Found this hard hat. Left it behind.

I'm one of the people strapped into this and pulling it. It's made up mostly of scrapped train parts. And most of the people involved are train riders.

>I wish they would allow trailers

Now that I think of it, are there any standards for speeder trailer or push cart construction; deck height, link and pin coupler location, and so forth? Or does each manufacturer, shop, and railroad do whatever the fuck they want because it's not like you need to worry about interchange service.

 No.3642

As far as I know, you wouldn't use a coupler. You just use a bar, some pins with r-clips or linchpins, and some hooks and chains. That's what we used to hook up MoW machines to be towed.

I found a scan of an old guidebook that may be of interest to some of you. It's a book that was given to American soldiers who were to be stationed in Great Britain to help them become acclimated to the different cultures and customs found in the Empire. There's a brief bit in there about the different terminologies for railways and what you can expect to see when riding a train in war time. The whole thing is worth a read if you're into this sort of thing.

So I lucked out and found this CPR observation car for my replica of Canadian Pacific trains #67/#68 from the mid-1950s.

I'm going to see about replacing the steps with something more detailed (one on the other side has been damaged) and I need to find a picture of the real one so I can see if any more detail can be added overall.

Anyone know what I can do about the glass placement on this model? The current plastic insert is set too far back.

Fort class, aw yiss! (Cape class for myself, as attached)
I haven't done it myself, but what about cutting the correct window size out of a somewhat thick sheet of clear plastic, then securing them all in place with a larger strip (sans joins at windows, of course)

 No.3652

Yeah I thought about cutting out some plastic and somehow gluing it into place more flush with the carbody. My fear would be excess glue ruining it.

And someone also suggested the glass slide covers method. A local modeller has done it, said it was a bitch to do but the end result was pretty good and it has elicited positive comments. I will have to ask him how he did it as trimming slide covers has to be tricky I suspect. Once upon a time as a budding geologist I had a microscope kit and recall how fragile those covers were (good thing I had a um *cough!* cheap supply at school).

>3651

I don't know what brand this model is but the previous owner decorated the interior, changed out the railing on the observation platform with one of those thin etched brass kits, and the marker lamps actually light up.

The 'Fort' class cars was primarily used on the run from Vancouver to Penticton. An individual (he's sent me a handful of CPR CLC pics) gave me a list of some he's seen on that run during that era. This observation car was listed and it turns out that a model of it was for sale from a local collection that was being liquidated. It was the last car I needed to complete the train.

Not sure if you are aware but check this site: http://passcarphotos.info/Indices/CP1.htm

I've heard of using specialized thin double sided tape for mounting window glazing without glue ruining everything. Fancy tape is expensive as fuck tho.
