Custom built O scale 36 foot Boxcar for Hi-rail 3-rail model railroad.

pro hobby ·
Custom built O scale 36 foot Boxcar for Hi-rail 3-rail model railroad. This is a 3-rail model of a 36 foot wooden boxcar having K-style brakegear and vertical handwheel. It is typical of early wooden boxcars that have been converted from truss rod underbody to a later style steel underframe. The model uses Lionel Bettendorf style sprung trucks. The boxcar is a freelance design.  Not all details have been added. No lettering has as yet been applied. Photos of similar prototype boxcars...

Re: The New Lionel "Techonology Boxcars," a few questions

I can help you with the sound car, but I don't know much about the sensor boxcar. According to the description these are not command controlled at all. There is a sensor near the wheel that determines speed / movement and the boxcar plays all kinds of freight sounds based on that movement (they are very realistic in my opinion and sound really cool) The Vision Reefers add a lot of triggered dialogue that can go on for minutes to hours depending on how long you want it to go, it also adds...

The Notch 6 catalog pod cast has your answers. Basically: Sound car: it can not be controlled. It has an on/off switch and manual sound control. The car does a variety of railroad sounds when the car is moving. Sensor boxcar: you put in the engine TMCC number (not sure how) and when the boxcar crosses the sensor track a signal is sent to the engine to perform the pre-programmed function. Works with both Legacy and TMCC engines, so l assume the engine must be capable of performing the function.

How will the sound car be powered? By track voltage through center-rail pick-up rollers, or by a rechargeable battery? I'm assuming the same way as the previously-released reefers, but I'm not familiar with how they work either!

If it's still similar to the pre production model we used for the Legacy Users Group demo last April, for TMCC engines it will ID it as it rolls over a sensor track for the LCS app but will not play a pre-programmed action like grade crossing. To do that you will have to create a recording using the sensor track so when it plays back, it plays back TMCC commands. All the pre-programmed sensor track actions are Legacy commands. For the older non-sensor engines it works just as a later model.

Happy Switcher Saturday and Happy Easter everyone. My contribution is a Pennsylvania Railroad B6sb (#4001) which was stored servicable in Columbus Ohio. Wood on its cab window, the Joyce Avenue coaling facility looms large in the background. The locomotive was scrapped by 1957. Tom Rich, hope you are feeling better.

Yay! SWSAT is on! I've been quiet of late in this thread, as well as the HONGZ Weekend Photo Fun thread. Reason: My "newest" computer has been in the shop forever, and thereon exists my sizable photo collections. In the meantime, I'm stuck on this old machine of mine, where scant few pictures reside.

Ok, I'm reaching back into my old photo albums for this one. I took the following photo back in January of 1989 when I was living in Michigan. This is a scanned version of my original colored 3.5" X 5" print, so please excuse the not-so-sharp image. "Family Lines" (SCL/LN) #3000 was switching cars around the rail yard across from Ford Motor Company's Rouge Assembly Plant. Unique-looking diesel to say the least! The end of the long hood looks "GE", the trucks look "Blomberg" (which, correct...

This is a BQ23-7. SCL was the only one that got these with the Comfort cabs (proto Wide cabs). Some even made it into CSX paint. I've always liked these. I remember visiting family near Williamsburg VA in the 1980's and seeing these. Bachmann made these in HO in the 80's in a pack with a caboose. I remember seeing these at Kay Bee Toy and Hobbies. Back when mainstream toy stores sold toy trains. I have one mint in the box. One of my very few pieces of HO. Very nice catch.

Wow, thanks for the quick response, Silver Lake! I had a feeling one of you guys would be able to provide the details. So, based on the "BQ23-7" model designation, I assume this was a G.E. product...am I correct?

Yes a BQ23-7 is a GE model. A GE b23-7 with an experimental wide cab. GE should have studied the Canadian cab design and applied it to that model or use the nose of the P30CH or the Santa Fe U30c Cowl units.

My two sons are Eagles and I was a Scoutmaster for many years. I was buying them the BSA cars and one year they stopped being produced. They have the Eagle and Life cars. I asked Mike Reagan about it and he said sales were disappointing and the BSA wasn't the easiest to work with. That being said the car is traditional sized and is what that is. I personally think every Eagle Scout should have one! I have every BSA item Lionel has released (I think!) and would buy any others they released.
