Lionel B60 Baggage Cars Have Arrived!

Maxrailroad ·
Hey folks, I’m here to share the good news that the new Lionel B60 bagagge cars have arrived at the dealers! I picked mine up yesterday, and I’m really impressived with the detail. The paint job is clear and crisp, and looks great with a whole train. Something really cool is that both sides of the car have lighted marker lights, and there is a toggle switch under the car to switch between which set of markers is on. Great job Lionel!

Walthers, La Belle, Gloorcraft Kits and one Huff and Puff

All "kits" are in original boxes, as far as I can tell all are complete, and show no signs of being "dumped out, and scrounged through". All look like they just came off the shelf, including the tissue inside. PayPal accepted Shipping on pretty much all of them will be $10.00 Feel free to ask questions, but almost any of these car kits can be found illustrated on the company's web site (La Belle), Walthers builders know by now to have a half dozen catalogs on hand tnelms5466@charter.net They...

Re: Bar Mills REA Baggage Cart: Paint or Pastels?

Dave_C ·
The recommendation of the primer coat is more to seal the wood and prevent warping. The wood on these models is pretty thin and if a water base paint is used the parts may start to curl. It's also a lot easier to paint parts before cutting them out. I agree a coat of primer tends to go on a little thick. I generally use either True Color paint or Scalecoat 1 and spray from an airbrush. Both are solvent based. This will seal the wood and not cover up the details. If you can get the look you...

We simply used rattle can grey primer from Lowes followed by dark green. Painted wheels with primer followed by black and red enamel. Allow to dry and weathered with chalk. Look great. Sorry for no pics but grandkids here and getting ready for church.

BarMills always recommends a light coat of gray primer on its wood kits to minimize warping if you're using acrylic paints. If you spray from 8-10 inches and keep the can moving, you should get a light coat. Do both sides. Even then, I weight down the pieces after a minute with a heavy object. Then apply a light acrylic coat, almost dry brushing it on (i.e easy on the amount of paint). Dark green is a great color, as Bill says. Adding a light coat of an alcohol and India ink (A&I) mix...

Jerrman's mention of ink/alcohol mixtures is important. In fact, if you are looking for an "old/weathered wood" look, often using ONLY I/A can be very effective. Note that you can get artists inks in many colors, not just black. I/A is the primary pigment I used in the little coffee-stirrer tool shanty project that I reported recently: Something from (almost) nothing Note how you can accentuate individual boards by dying them with different inks. You then blend it all together while weathering.

Thank-you all for sharing your tips and thoughts. I've applied the grey primer and currently have the pieces sitting under a weight. It looks like the larger wood section had started to warp just in the packaging, so I hope it flattens out. Fortunately, the primer retained some sense of the tiny wood grain. My green and red acrylic paints it would appear are on the glossy end, so I will want to be careful and follow the less is more advice or perhaps see if some matte white or even ink will...

For acrylics you will able to find dozens of craft type paints that are flat not shiny. (e.g. Delta Ceramcoat). Any craft store (Michaels), art supply store or even supermarkets with craft sections has them. Cost is usually $1.50 or less. If u do use the gloss paint, spray with Dull-coat, the lightly dry brush with white or sandstone (tan) to give it an aged look. I would recommend the flat acrylics, however. And they come in about a hundred colors. Jerrman

Well as it turned out the gloss wasn't a problem. (An aside: two years ago my software company gave all of us $800 worth of paint supplies for xmas -- seriously! So, I hesitate to buy much in the way of new paints with this generous gift sitting idle -- up until today!) Anyway, because of the small scale and the darkish grey primer, the red and green acrylics came out fine straight from the tube. I toned them down as needed with a swipe of a finger in true artistic fashion. Before reading...

Re: Viewliner II's on Parade

The easiest way to offer these would actually be as 2-car add-ons. Here's my rationale: --There are no solid Viewliner trains: And there might never be. They are always mixed with Amfleet cars, which are a long way from retirement. There's not even an agreed-upon design out for their replacements. They may look like Viewliners, they may not. (chief problem with a Viewliner-style coach is the upper windows would compromise overhead luggage space. Maybe a Viewliner shell with a single row of...

Not an expert but can point you to this site . TT Gray cars did exist. I doubt all of the green cars got repainted though. Videos from the '50s show cars in all different paint schemes in the same train. Pete

Good stuff, Pete. Thanks to the site you pointed me to, I just gained a 500% increase in my knowledge of NYC heavyweight head-end cars. I'll look for some actual car numbers in Santa Fe consists and see what I can do with that. The biggest surprise to me is that NYC had so many short baggage-express cars with 4 wheel trucks. Thanks for the help.

Tom, in my research of the DL&W, I discovered several similarities in road equipment to the NYC. Heavyweight Baggage, RPO & coaches all rode on 4 wheel trucks. The DLW Pullman built 70' coaches are near identical (if not the same) to those in the NYC, as are some classes of baggage.

In the late 1950's - early 60's I used to watch the PRR Northern Express/Penn Texas/ and something else leave Baltimore around 9 PM. On Fridays the train generally carried 19 +/- cars which had come from DC and were running up the old Northern Central to Harrisburg where the train was split for Buffalo, St.Louis/Texas, and Chicago. The train generally was about a 50/50 split between head end and passenger cars. More times than not it would have an NYC 60 foot baggage like the one in the...

Baggage Car Question For New York Central Experts

I like to build secondary Santa Fe passenger trains like the Grand Canyon or the Fast Mail . I would appreciate some expertise on NYC head-end cars which ran in Santa Fe trains. During the postwar era, there were multiple daily cars of storage mail interchanged from New York Central to Santa Fe at Chicago. The only ones I can remember seeing in California were heavyweight baggage cars painted green or grey. I have also seen photos of what appears to be converted WW2 troop sleepers from NYC...

Bar Mills REA Baggage Cart: Paint or Pastels?

For the Monday holiday, I plan on building Bar Mills Kit #0784, the REA Baggage Cart. The instructions said to start with an overall spray of grey primer and I just picked up a can. My plan was to use touches of green and red acrylic paint to match some carts in hand-painted postcards from my modeling area and era. But given that the model is wood and has a fine grain, I'm wondering whether I should skip the primer and paint and use chalk pastels instead. Before I dig out my box of artists...
