      For something a little different, this Bloch & Guggenheimer Pickle car will be making the rounds this year. B&G is still in business, but no longer send wooden vat pickle cars out of Roseland, New Jersey.

        BTW, I will have the routing list ready shortly and we should be ready to ship the first cars out on the the end of March.

          Bruce, are you going to lock those vats somehow, or are we going to have to worry about Preacher and Turtle?

          Nice looking car!

            Preacher and Turtle might give new meaning to the phrase 'getting pickled'.

            Seriously, the lids on the roof do open and I am thinking of tacking them shut with a drop of white glue. That will protect them on their year long trip and allow me to get them back open with a drop of water. What do you think?

              That sounds like a solution to me. Just don't use yellow glue! And you might try it on the same materials before you do it on the car....

                  How about some Hob-e-tac? Same results and it peels off.

                  BTW I've been away at Bay Rails for the past week and I'm just catching up.

                      I have made my selection for this year's Interchange. For those of you that are thinking of building a basement for your train layout (and to hold up your house) building that new freeway or adding that Olympic sized swimming pool this year's car will come in handy.




                      It is a PS1 class LO covered cement hopper. Two reasons this car will go. I have not cut the glad hands off the Kadee couplers yet and I found out this is a duplicate car number. I bought the Kadee PS1 with the same number. So it will not be missed in the car rotation of my regular ops sessions.

                      This car is a group of 15 cars (11700-117014) purchased by the New Haven RR from Pullman-Standard Car Co. for cement service in 1949. This group of cars plus the 85 PS2 covered cement hoppers (117115-117099 built in 1954) that I have (no, I don't have all 85 of them) were instrumental in the construction of many roads and hi-ways in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island in the 1949-53 era plus the Connecticut Turnpike back in 1954. I use mostly the PS1's in my era which is pre-1954.

                      This is a Bowser model and all the hatches are glued shut. If any of them come loose just glue them back on with Tenex or MEK. This will be shipped in the Kadee box as these are pretty resilient (if I can find it).

                          My choice for a 2011 railcar came under cover of darkness. Not only is it a jewelid="size4">id="brown"> of a car, but it has historical significance

                          of a company which survived both World Wars and lasted into the early 80's. Your mission, should you decide to accept it,

                          will be to attempt to find products* from this fine company, load them in, and forward them on to the next Interchangee.



                          More to follow when the sun comes up!

                            Bill - looks like we'll be putting in that Cement Pond this summer after all.

                            Allen - I'm pretty sure I have memories of going to Jewel grocery stores with my mom when I was a kid.

                            Dave :erm:

                              Guys, I should have the routing list to you by the end of the day. Let's target April 1 as the time to get the first cars in the mail.

                                Here she is, not exactly the Jewel of the Nileid="blue">id="size4">, but ready for service.





                                Quick question, Bruce. If one desired to remove the roof for a reason, what kind of adhesive should be used?
