Plan you layout so you can expand it into the additional space when it becomes available. Start construction in the space you have now and expand into the other territory when it's open.

Sleeper dome question

pittsburghrailfan ·
Hello, I know that several railroads had or have domed sleeper cars. That meaning, cars with an upper level dome deck and sleeping accommodations down below. Did any railroad put sleeping accommodations actually on the dome deck? A sort of "Sleep under the stars" roomette or bedroom.

The Put in O Gauge

Arnold D. Cribari ·
I was just reviewing another thread in the Real Trains Forum entitled New York Central The Putnam Division, commonly known as The Put. Does anyone know if there is an O Gauge layout modeling The Put? If not, does such a layout exist in HO or any other gauge? I would love to see such a layout. It would be great to model The Put for numerous reasons. Arnold

For what I know the dome area was always seating..

No sleeping under the stars unless you fell asleep in one of the dome seats after dark. All sleeping accommodations were at floor level.

The domed area seems to be premium space. I think VIA in Canada has a nearly refurbished car that has private rooms in a domed car, but the dome is separate and is a community space. Kent in SD

The homemade Espee domes has long sofas, where you could stretch out after dark, and kinda get the effect of a true sleeper dome. In the summer of '69, I did just that going from Oakland to Ogden, on the City of Everywhere. Great sleep, and nobody kicked me out !

Arnold, Within the past year, I believe there was an article in MR about an HO "Put" layout. MELGAR

I would think HO would likely be a proper gauge to realistically model the PUT.

The engine pictured below, while marked for the New Haven Railroad, is actually a Lionel Legacy model of a New York Central Class F 4-6-0 "Ten Wheeler" which type was used on the "Put" and also sold by Lionel. And Alco RS-3 "lightening stripe" diesels ran on the "Put" after steam was retired. So, O gauge models of engines that ran on the "Put" are available. I think my 10'-by-5' model railroad is similar to how an O gauge "Put" might look... MELGAR

Peter (aka @Putnam Division ) posted pics on the Real Train forum of a NYC 10 wheeler - forget if it was Lionel.

I had no idea what this thread was about until I read it; seems the title should read: The "PUT" in O Gauge Mark in Oregon

The MTH Starter set 4-6-0 is based on the NYC F12 if you are on a budget as well if you are willing to put up with some clunky detailing. It has been offered in at least 3 NYC accurate numbers over the years. The starter set 2-6-0 is based on an SP engine but passable for NYC as well.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. I think an historically accurate, or approximately historically accurate, layout modeling The Put could be very appealing for the following reasons: There were iron ore mines in Brewster, NY. Models of such mines could be on the The Put model railroad. Iron ore could be loaded in Lionel ore dump cars and gondolas there, using the Lionel 282 gantry crane. There were dairy farms in Northern Westchester County, including such farms in Yorktown...

There is a very nice HO scale rendition of the Put in the Town of Yorktown Museum

Flooded or un-flooded??? Sorry Arnold... couldn’t resist But your point is well taken. As a regular visitor to Westchester the last few years, there is so much of interest to the modeler. Don’t forget the RR bridges!!! And I am sure someone could could pick a small portion of the division to model... my choice would be the connection to the Harlem Line at Goldens Bridge.

When I first joined the forum, I think there was a post in real trains that I watched the video to. One of the videos after that had the Putnam Division featured in it for a bit. I don't remember if it was just about NYC steam or the Water Level Route.

Best video on the old Put came with Joe Sciavone's book trilogy on the line.
