      Ranma, One of two Frisco cars in Jenks, OK was torn down today. Read about this in this thread,
      Frisco passenger cars in Jenks, OK almost saved.

      The local news said any group has until 27-AUG to remove the rail-cars.

      Ranma, Thanks for the updates. I will try my hardest to save these rail cars. Of course like you said "There is not much that can be done in a short notice". But I will try.

      Hi Brian,
      There is not much that can be done on such short notice. I have no ideal on how to move such large heavy rail cars. While I am not poor am not rich and did not receive encouragement or offers of help from the Wrecker or City. Retrieving the cars is only the first step; there is a lot of corrosion on these cars and one has been wrecked. It has heavy structural damage as well as heavy corrosion. There is evidence of dissimilar metal corrosion from either shoddy design or repairs. These cars need a lot of attention and even with repair are unlikely to ever become roadworthy. My friend one has to pick their fights carefully. These cars have gone past the point of no return and are ready to be recycled. Perhaps they might come back as a new train set.
      kind regards
      Ranma

      Ranma, I would like to get ahold of the tracks and ties so I can use them to put the cars on when I get them to Eureka Springs, Ark. I am going to act quickly to save them. I need to find someone to help me moved them.

      They seem determined to scrap them, suppose 160,000 lbs of scrap. My last conversation with them was not very encouraging. They were just being polite with me. There are other cars to be saved. These are in very bad shape.

      It is not up to me but the company that owns them.

      They are still there as of tonight. There appears to be no sign of removing them. You need to act quickly.

      Hi Brian,

      Sorry for the posting, guess 30 years of government service has left me suspicious. Afraid there is nothing I can do in the time available. If there were time might be able to do something. I do not think they will last the week. Guess it must be fate.

      Sincerely

      Ranma

      Thanks Ranma for telling me a little more information about these cars. I would like to see your pictures when you do post them. "Who will pay to move them" you asked. Well, My Railroad Museum will going to need some help in moving them to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. So can you help??

      Well they are in rough condition lacking in most of the equipment. Once I move my pictures from my phone to computer will post them. 762 the Chair car has been in an accident of some sort, both of the cars have no windows and a lot of rust. Both are missing a lot of parts. I will give them a call tomorrow, ah who will pay to move them? It would be the same effort as moving a mobile home.

      Ranma, my Railroad Museum is located near Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Can you tell me any more information on or about these Frisco heavyweights cars? I need all the information I can get. I am wondering if they are willing to donate or give these cars to my Railroad Museum?? Can you ask them if you can?? Please send me a Private Message for the information on these cars. I will keep you inform.

      Is your Museum far from Tulsa? I wonder how they could be moved. They seem a bit long for truck and it would take some doing to make them roadworthy. Let me know if I can help.
