Hi Comrade Jose  :Salute:



Of course you can have a decent size hobby room !

There isn't a Hobby Shop for 1000 miles & Postman Patrovski only comes twice a year ...

... the world needs ice-sculptures, as well as trains, though ! ;)



- - - - - - -


Sometimes there are  oDd  things which need explaining ... :old dude:

... such as this ' WHAT IS IT ? ' ... that I found a photo of recently.





OK ... Yeah ... I know what railroad it was from !  :P



Seems to be pretty old ... 19th century perhaps ?

The trucks look VERY weird & unlike most things I've seen.  L:

It appears to be some kind of early tank car ...

... but the 3 shapes merged together ?  :hyp:



What's going on ? ... What is it ?  ???

Looks pretty  C :cool: :cool: L  anyhow.



I want one ! ... You can probably count Canadian Ken in for one too !  ;)



:pimp:



Si.

Maybe from the 1860s or 1870s?

Here's a quick history on tank cars: http://utlx.com/pdf/TankCarHistory.pdf

Did a quick check on my O2IT tank cars,

2 Water cars and 3 or is it 4 Tank cars,

will pass on that Oil Tank Car.:bang::bang::bang:

Add to this 3 Water Tanks 1 of which is finished,

a Flat front building (hopefully to take DU for contest entry)

and not a foot of track laid yet!!.

OK, guys, the B&O car in question is a coal hopper.
B&O once had a big bunch of these 3-pot hoppers and yes, they date from the mid-19th century.
I believe there is at least one on display at the B&O Museum in Baltimore.
For those who might have my Carstens book on the Cumberland and Pennsylvania RR, see the photo on page 4,
showing several of the C&P's cars built from the same blueprints at the canal terminus in Cumberland.

Hi EBT  :wave:



Thanks for your 'diagnosis' as a HOPPER !  :thumb:



As I said, I didn't recall where I got the photo on the previous << Page from.

But with 'hopper' plus 'B&O Museum', I was able to find some more photos of these cars.



They do have a PAIR at the B&O Museum.





This rather super photo, is labelled as taken at Martinsburg in 1858.  L:

An interesting tender behind & 'camelbacks' as well.



The roundhouse looks a tiny bit like the B&O Museum as well ...

... I suppose many did though !  :P



The search-term 'B&O Iron Pot Coal Hopper' or similar ...

... will turn up photos for those who like funky junk like this !  :)



I wonder if Jose has done a Lionel-BASH of one of these already ?  ;)



:cool:



Si.
