I finished some additional Conrail auto parts boxcars in the last month.  Two renumbered Bluford Shops 86’ cars (X60g and X60f) and two Atlas 60’ cars (BE60c).  The Atlas cars are painted out EL cars.  The masking was extensive, but I am pleased with the results.  All four cars are modeled from photos I took of the prototypes.  Thanks.

Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

nufacture the gases from burning coal? Or is the coal from a new site user? My guess is natural gas from coal deposits in PA, as a natural resource, and liquifying it. Of course, maybe it's soemthing other than liquified natural gas. Union Carbide always makes me think of Bhopal and Front 242 anyway...

Linde produced a lot of liquefied gases, including CO2, N2, Ne, O2, and Ar.  I suspect that the coal was to power the liquefaction equipment, rather than as a raw material.

Air Products has a similar plant in Ashland, KY, but as far as I know it doesn't burn coal.  It may be natural gas or electric.

I knew those "boxcars" were really tankcars, but this is the first time I remember seeing the tank.

What year are those boxcars good for?

Here is a photo from 1952. The road to the plant (Linde Road) looks like it was just built:

Testing fitting a new Keystone Details Pullman underbody superdetailing kit this weekend The @Scott Lupia inspired system is designed to direct-replace the Micro-trains underbody for their Pullman sleeper and has the flexibility to duplicate any Pullman plan underbody arrangement for full customization using a common rib to locate the pieces.

The kit uses a 1/8" dia X2" long tungsten welding rod as a spine inside the two floor halves. I added the tiny lead balls for added mass.

This kit is for mechanical A/C systems. Ice is done too. 



Combined with the KD Pullman 242 trucks and I'll have a very accurate 8-1-2 plan...
