I’m replacing the pilot couplers on 6 brass HOn3 loco’s for the fourth time. So, maybe 7 or 8 couplers. I’ll try to call you around 8:00pm eastern time.

Re: Remembering Frank Kappler

Vertical storage sounds good until you go to use it. Each tube must be removable to get the shorter pieces out. I use the Very very old, like 60 year old cardboard tubes with metal ends that Northeastern use to send their strip wood out in from the 1960's. I have tubes with the size on the end plus L H,Z, types of special shapes on the tube cap. It kind of helps but the tubes are still a pain when I put caps on the wrong ones. hahhaha I stored it vertically and horizontally and it was a pain either way. I believe that drawers with the wood laying flat is the best solution. Even with Northeastern long wood, it can be cut to fit. We need to think of where would it be stored, mostly on a shelf. In addition we need to keep in mind that people will probably try to stack other things on it so the outside box would need to be stout.

I see what you mean about getting to material in the back of the
drawers.  The only problem with orienting in the other direction for
long wood is the footprint of the cabinet.  Personally, I don't believe
I'd have the space to accommodate a 26" deep cabinet.

However, I believe I can come up with a design (a couple actually) that
would satisfy both camps well enough.  Let me see what I can do.

Re: Remembering Frank Kappler

Climax@...
 

Bill:
I am still as strong contender that keeping the box square allowing the dividers to be either across or lenthwise is a great idea. It allows the owner to select his desired wood display by just shifting the dividers which could be locked together as a unit, 90 degrees. The option gives the buyers the option of either way. Strip wood in thicknesses of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 scale inch thicknesses for each drawer would be great. even a drawer for sheet wood, clapboard, board & batton, scribed, could be a bottom drawer as well. I have mine if a long box on edge but flat would be just as good. The drawer if stored vertically would need to be 4 or 6 inches deep. I am not sure what the drawer handles should be, maybe something lazer cut and glued on.

Re: PSC tank car kits

Robert

On the early Van Dykes, #7-11, White Pass fitted their "69-class" trucks. I believe that these were duplicates of the Baldwin tender trucks supplied with locomotives 68 & 69, which were 56" WB, 26" wheel trucks, with roughly equal slopes to the top and bottom bars.

I have examined most of the nominal 6500 gallon tank shells purchased from UTLX postwar, and all that I examined showed evidence of the distinctive Van Dyke body bolster, either remnants of the torch trimmed casting or plugged rivet holes. These postwar purchases were initially mounted on a mix of WP&Y wood flats and ex. USATC steel gondolas (with wood sides removed), latterly all were on on steel flats, mostly 11xx. flats.

Thanks John.  I was going to make it into one of the White Pass cars anyway, but was unaware of running board relocation.  I haven't gotten around to studying pictures of them yet.  What type of trucks did they use? 

Thanks again!
