Did any of the SL-SF PS 40' cars see MofW service in the silver/grey? Pictures?
Tom, don't know that I've ever seen photos of any PSPS-1s in MoW service. Lots of photos of older outside-braced boxcars and discarded passenger equipment. Wonder if most converted PS-1s became cabooses?
Thanks Chris I have looked all over, haven't found any evidence to the affirmative either.
Never seen one in silver but I have seen some in boxcar red with MOW numbers. Roger
Tom, don't feel like you have to make the MOW boxcars look just like the prototype.
RULE 1 covers things like that!!!
The first car is from the 40's or 50's SEO Operators worked the trees tortes by flat cars. Some like this was half and half. They carried mowers bulldozers graders speed swings and so forth Some were bunks on one on one side.
The second one is a bunk, Tool Car, most likely two workers shared this, maybe a team that worked cranes
The Third is a high lift dozer on a flat car.
This third one is a bunk for several probably double bunks.
That's about all I have
Here's one in red, at least you know number series to use....Roger
Thats is just what I was looking for. So, I see 109213 MW. Is that what you see as well?
Charlie, in the previous post by Roger, he gave us a link to a Frisco boxcar photo. Is the one bid yours?
I think that's the number, I bid on it to get the correct number...If you want it a $7 bid would top mine...Roger
Cant believe its going that high.
Any idea if the dozer was painted silver or did they stay yellow? Thanks guys.
Yes they was all "Sunshine Yellow" The Frisco had a couple 1 Silver and 1 Black. Most every other machine was Yellow. Sorry the Jordan Ditcher was that dark reddish. The Gradall was yellow and blue.
