N scale U.S. WWII Troop cars!!!

Raimondo L.Torelli <thealamo@...>
 

June 11 2003

I am back to the List after a few weeks, as I have had some surgery and I am recovering.
If anybody has sent me any posting and has NOT received a reply, APOLOGIES. Only now I have checked the mail... and I have some 3000 postings to check...

Good news for the "N" military scalers!! Doc Robinson are you ready??

I have just received the NMRA BULLETIN (May) and I have seen an ad by the U.S. manufacturer Microtrains:

They are releasing three Troop sleepers with different road numbers plus one Kitchen car in N scale:
I am not in N scale, but, who knows? Perhaps in the not too distant future some manufacturer (Bachmann can you hear???) will produce them...!!!

Price is not yet announced. The half page ad shows a color picture of the two cars, the troop sleeper and the kitchen car. They are enough for a train, perhaps a couple of flatcars with tanks and mil-veh will add some colour.

If any of the N listers is not a member of NMRA and would like a photocopy of the ad, send me a snail mail address and I shall send an enlarged photocopy of it.

Don't forget: Military Model Railroading is More Fun!!

I also have the Ironside 1/35 St. Chamond railgun, but have yet to
build it. At the same time I purchased it I also got the Gun Firing
Platform for it, made by Azimut. It's in perfect, as new condition,
and I'm probably not going to use it. Let me know if you're

I might be interested. I'm about to start on the 1/87 scale resin
model by Fine Cast Models and would like to get any reference
material for detailing. I already have the book on the Dora by
Gerhard Taube and the 1/48 plan set from Fritz Swanson, anything that
can add to those references I'd like to have. What price are you
looking for?

Subject: Leave duds alone!

from the 2002 Darwin awards.

Rocket Tester 2002 Darwin Award Nominee Confirmed True by Darwin.com

(8 June 1983, North Carolina) The Army base at Fort Bragg has seen its
share of military "accidents," including the following, a true story
and an object lesson often recounted on explosive device ranges to
teach soldiers a basic safety lesson: LEAVE A DUD ROUND WHERE IT LAYS.
At the LAW (Light Anti-Tank Weapon) range, soldiers are afforded the
rare privilege of firing a real LAW round, although the test rounds are
smaller, and not armed with the full explosive power of the actual
LAWs. They have an orange chalk warhead, and resemble a model rocket.

One day, the designated Range Safety Officer, Sergeant Lowe, was
assigned the job of setting up the moving target with the assistance of
a 3-man detail. "The installation of the target on the carrier was
hampered by the absence of proper tools," so they improvised, and used
a steel tent peg as a hammer to nail the target to the carrier.

While walking on the firing range, Sgt. Lowe spotted and picked up a
M72A2 66mm LAW dud round that had not exploded upon impact with the
target. The other men in the detail warned him to leave it on the
ground, and let the EOD (Explosive Ordinance Detachment) handle it. Sgt
Lowe replied, "Its just an old dud," and, to illustrate the innocuous
nature of the round, began to strike it with the steel tent peg.

The second strike tripped the pressure-sensitive piezoelectric
detonator, causing the round to explode. The explosion tore off Sgt.
Lowe's left arm, parts of his right hand, and inflicted fatal wounds to
his lungs and abdominal area.

Instead of the EOD, a medical evacuation aircraft was dispatched from
the hospital, and an Army Forensics Team arrived to literally scoop up
the remains of the former "Range Safety Officer."

Always remember, leave a dud round where it lays!

Re: [railwayguns & armoured trains] A question regarding railgun deployment

MW Bolden <zulu@...>
 

Dave,
The best pictures I've seen of the St. Chamond in an emplacement is the
softbound book
'Guns of the Atlantic Wall 1942-1945' by Karl-Heinz and Michael Schmeelke
(Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.). It shows it in a coastal emplacement that the
Germans built.
There are several smaller pictures in a French publication 'Histoire &
Fortifications Magazine, Hors Serie No. 1 Nov. 2000, 1919-1945 and Hors
serie No. 2 Sept. 2001 - 1886-1918. Both of these magazines have lots of
pictures of the French railgun arsenal.

Azimut Productions also made a firing platform for the St. Chamond (fixed
position, no turntable) that was to me too expensive for what you got. But
it was (is) the only gig in town. Hope this helps out.

MW Bolden

Hi Bobby,

I would look forward to have a chat about military railways with you.
I am living in Amsterdam, Netherlands very close to Schiphol Airport.
In case you will be able to come to Amsterdam, you can have a look at my
collection.
Possibly the biggest in the Netherlands. Including many original drawings,
original photo's,
manuals etc.
The only thing is that we will be moving from Amsterdam to Hilversum in the
first weeks of july.
This means that we will be starting to pack all our stuff second half of
june....
I might be available june 5th in the evening. But I will check my wife to see if
it is allright.

regards,

Marcel Verhaaf

dear friends,

I am a railway gun modeller from South Africa and will be visting Europe
soon. Here is my detail, if anyone is in the area I am visiting, I would
like to meet you and to tell you about the exciting military model train
activities in our country. In september 2004 we are presenting the largest
military model train convention in the southern hemisphere!

With advice received from the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS)
of the United Kingdom, I will not be visiting the UK in June anymore.
Instead I will spend all my free time with the modellers in the Netherlands.
The planned UK visit is postponed to November to coincide with the IPMS UKs
40th birthday celebrations and Nationals in Telford, UK. I will then be
visiting the same organizations I have requested to visit in June and even
more.

My new itinerary is as follows:

? Arrive at Amsterdam Skiphol Airport 2 June 05h40 with flight KLM 594.
? The 2nd June I will enjoy Dutch hospitality by visiting scale modeling
related venues. I am staying in the Golden Tulip Bel Air Hotel next to The
Hague Conference Center. My host will be Erwin Stam.
? On 3 to 6 June I will be attending the European Foundation For Quality
Management (EFQM) Conference in The Hague, Netherlands.
? On the 6th June I am flying to the USA to visit IPMS Chapters in the
Midwest (Michigan).
? I will return to Amsterdam Skiphol Airport on 14th June and once again be
hosted by the Dutch IPMS modelers until my flight back. My host will be
Erwin Stam.
? I will depart to South Africa on 16 June at 21h00 with flight KLM 593.

My sincere regards
