Weekend at the Movies 4/21/17!

pittsburghrailfan ·
Happy Friday everyone! After another long week, it's time for Weekend at the Movies! 2 weeks ago, the thread featured a broad range of trains, including CNJ 113, Burlington GP35s, Red Owls, and F40s: http://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/topic/weekend-at-the-movies-4-7-17 This week, I finally managed to upload not one, but two new videos for your viewing pleasure. The first includes a few random shots from around the O gauge layout at the D.A.R.E. Model Railroad Club (by the way, we have an open...

During a quiet moment between classes yesterday I put my K-Line GG1 #4935 at the head of the Amtrak cars at Medfield Elementary School in Baltimore. OK, so the dome never ran behind a GG1, but this is my railroad! LOL.

That looks like the correct truck. OK, so I have to go through the shell I guess. I thought on some of these models you can turn the truck to a point and they would drop down so you didn't have to remove the shell. Just was wondering if this particular loco was one of them.

Way too early, that is the Liondrive trucks, usually they're on Legacy stuff. They didn't show up until a few years after your model.

Saw that at a local hobby shop on an F unit, think it is a later production change. (Of course on the older engines just having the side frame screws be installed from below would have eliminated most of the problems...) Anyone know if current production diesel units have a "Twist and Drop" truck assembly?

Need suggestions for changing a Lionel TMCC side frame and traction tire.

Coopertroopa ·
Hi guys, I have an older TMCC Lionel SD40, specifically the CNJ SD40-2 (6-28224) from 2004. I need to change a side frame and a traction tire. I was wondering if any of you had any easy ways to get at the screws for the side frames. They seem pretty far underneath the body and even turning the trucks as far as they go it only makes one screw available on each side. Is there an easier way to get at them? Do I have to take off the shell to get at them? Thanks in advance!

gunrunnerjohn ·
I guess I'm confused. Aren't the screws for the sideframes inside the trucks between the wheels? If the screws go in from the top, you will have to drop the trucks, that means taking the shell off. I don't remember which side they are on for this model.

CNJ Plywood Caboose

Malcom built me a few of these, and they are amazing. Since then, I have moved into a new home and my modeling focus is changing, so this will become excess. Model is not painted but is primed. Built for 2 rail, the buyer can easily modify the caboose for 3 rail trucks and/ or couplers.

Allentown, PA rail car - can you help ID and date it?

TomlinsonRunRR ·
I have a fondness for rail and trolley cars that survived the scrap yards because they were converted into diner-style restaurants or were attached to restaurants -- often in a former train station. Something about the rail car at the side of the former Allentown Terminal Railroad Station (Central NJ) has piqued my interest. Maybe it's the fanciful green and filigree paint job? Maybe it's the tragic history associated with it? Can someone help identify the type of car and its era? Following...

Montclaire, thanks for the input on the NYC trucks. Can you elaborate any? I'm woefully unfamiliar with truck variants, but I have found photographs and at least one description that suggest that the CNJ and NYC rail cars were quite similar. Here are some examples: "Part 2: Passenger Cars" of this S Scale NYC topic mentions that the 70-foot heavy weight CNJ cars could pass for NYC -- from the site: And the real thing, Pullmans, I believe: It's hard to tell because of the shadows, but it...

The trucks are actually cast for NYC - NYC A6373 and NYCS A6373. Those casting numbers were also found under another car dating from approx 1929. So again, the trucks are NYC. If they are original to the road or to the car, I do not know.

Chris/LVHR, It looks like our two posts just "crossed in the mail". Thanks for what sounds like a very interesting eye-witness account and background on how the Banana's rail car was moved into place. You mentioned it was used as a kitchen. Now, looking more closely at the row of silver roof vents, it does look like they could be centered somewhat over the car to serve that purpose. One photo shows the windows uncovered, 'however. Given that Banana's was a national chain restaurant, it...

Thanks very much for the clarification, Montclaire. The approximate date fits my ballpark guess for this car. I found a lone mention to A6373 trucks on the web. For those interested, here's an excerpt from railroad.net about A6373 trucks, which are on the so-called "FDR" car (not!) that sits on a track under the Waldorf Astoria. I know I've seen videos of it here and there. The Penn Central reference is interesting: "The info I have is that is was built in 1929 and the previous number was PC...

The car was used as a kitchen when the station was converted to a restaurant, as there was no kitchen in the station. There was a third car that was located on the other side of the building. I think it was demolished sometime in the 1990s. I remember visiting the site and seeing nothing but the concrete slab on top of the trucks. I know the cars were placed there sometime after all the tracks were removed. They used the ex LV rails to get the cars as close to the building as possible, then...

The station started out as the Gingerbread Man in 1980 or 1981. Then became the Depot in 1987 after being closed a few years. Then closed again, and became B&G Station in the 90’s. Then Jillian’s, Banana Joe’s, and Bananas. I live near Allentown and rode the 765 excursion when it came to the area a few years ago. The station was run down and derelict before it was restored as a restaurant between its closing in 1967 as a CNJ train station and 1979. Fun fact, the CNJ RS3 #1554 that was on...

Robert K, thanks for your excellent clues and fine memories of the CNJ RS3. I've no time for further investigation this morning, but this newpaper article from 1982 says that Dick Phelan, the owner of the Gingerbread Man, brought the three railcars to the station (1981). A photo of the nearby Carlisle, PA Gingerbread Man shows the same "Spirit Merchant and Grocer" phrase on that building and an over all green paint scheme that we see in Allentown during the Bananas/Banana Joe's years.

I hope the station is saved or bought. It would be a shame if it were torn down. And the coach, if the graffiti is still there I hope it can be cleaned up. Some people have no respect for private property and things that are historical. The Lehigh Valley station that was next to the Hamilton Street bridge was razed in 1972, 2 years before I was born. Last LV pass train was Feb 1961.

Today, for the first time, I ran my Atlas O USRA 0-6-0 steam locomotive model of Central Railroad of New Jersey #107, purchased new in 2008. I have always admired the fine details on this engine but had avoided running it partly because of its unusual tether and partly because my layout looks like New England, not New Jersey. When I went down to the layout today, I lifted it off the siding where it was parked and decided to give it a run. The tether was definitely difficult to plug into the...

I ran my long-dormant MTH Premier PRR T1 duplex steam locomotive. I don't even model the era in which they ran, but I can't part with it because 1) it's a massive, really heavy hunka metal (and I've loved heavy things since I was a kid); and 2) there's simply nothing else like it. At the same time I purchased it, I purchased a matching set of "Fleet of Modernism" cars, whose prototypes ran behind the T1. That plus several of the fantastic Weaver PRR head-end cars makes a lovely train indeed.

I don't have an image at the moment, but I also ran my Premier PRR A-5 0-4-0, pulling my wreck train. I need to post pics of that too. I always realize I need pics when I'm posting. This forum is all about images and videos, which is great. I'll post images of this train soon. The A-5 is a sweet little locomotive. The bell is fantastic, with an uneven cadence that a hand-rung bell would have.

Haven't run anything today but I generally swap out the trains on the layout once a week, usually Friday PM or Saturday. Currently, on the track is: -Lionel 4-4-2 Pennsylvania Flyer set -Lionel Postwar (1950) 773 with postwar freight train -MTH Chessie Show Train with the gold GP40 -MTH New York Flatbush Ave. Subway set. Not sure what I'll put on there next, there are several things I haven't run in many, many months I may pull down such as the LionChief Plus Camelback, Williams/Bachmann...
