locked Steel vs wood passenger cars Circa 1909

There are a number of memos and letters in the SRHA archives that discuss the move from wood to all-steel passenger equipment. Running multiple sections was already becoming a problem simply because of increasing passenger traffic.

Ike,

Fascinating stuff. I did find several versions of the SS Pythia and whale oil shipping on this list, including an SS Pythia that supposedly ran from 1915 to 1928 under the A/S Dominion Whaling Ltd, Sandefjord. In service as cargo ship.... Link is here, although this looks like someone's personally built timeline that would need more verification. https://www.preceden.com/timelines/235552-the-whale-oil-factory-ships

Now this IS a verified source. The only buyer of consequence in the U.S. of whale oil from Norway was P&G in 1934 according to a Norwegian letter to the U.S. Secretary of State from that year. Interesting. https://history.state.gov/historicaldocuments/frus1934v02/d553

You can find papers and links about P&G's use of whale oil in the hydrogenation of whale oils (and other types of oils) for products including margarine and cosmetics (Both of which P&G made and still makes). I've seen an unverified source on whale oil being a minor ingredient (less than half of one percent) in the original Ivory Soap (one of P&G's flagship brands). A P&G expert I am not though. So, that bears some more proper research if anything is to be done with the information.

But, one thing is clear, P&G brought in thousands of shipments of whale oil to the U.S., including to its Ivorydale/Cincinnati plant from Port Ivory on Staten Island. The Port Ivory plant was owned by P&G. You can find references to the trade in an ICC petition P&G filed against the B&O in 1926 about the whale oil shipment rates based on the shipment of 160 whale oil cars. Link here: https://books.google.com/books?id=zZbHY9_LWKkC&pg=PA177&lpg=PA177&dq=%22port+ivory%22+Procter+and+gamble+%22whale+oil%22&source=bl&ots=SJofjsn7ft&sig=ACfU3U0RN8gyIquFiBYLZ30oe3xCmOh4BA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjWmpjc9bztAhVFWqwKHfaHAxMQ6AEwD3oECBEQAg#v=onepage&q=%22port%20ivory%22%20Procter%20and%20gamble%20%22whale%20oil%22&f=false

If the Southern was involved in shipping whale oil too...I wonder what the routing was. Interesting. The SRHA archives deliver a fine mystery here that can be solved. I'll keep looking into this one a bit.

Thanks Jack! I have added that page to my list now. Google needs a librarian, when I tried SS even S/S Pythia all I got was the info I put up. 

That and how whale oil is bad .

I am wondering if there are any publicity photos from this?

A ship named Pythia is in this list:

Donaldson Line (theshipslist.com)

It was sold to Norway in 1911 and converted to a whale factory ship.

locked Whale Oil and Southern Railway shipment information in the Fairfax Harrison period

Presidents' Files Box 403 contains files that discuss shipments, and revenues, for every category of freight the Southern carried in the early 1920s. Manufactured items, from the North to the South, agriculture products and raw materials South to North and imports and exports, mostly through the ports of Norfolk and Charleston. (The archives contain extensive material (and photos) of the coal pier at Charleston that certainly warrant a TIES article..anyone interested in helping?)

The attached is somewhat unusual......
There are several documents describing shipments from the S/S "Pythia" from Norfolk to Procter & Gamble at Ivorydale (Cincinnati), Ohio. The 6-12-1923 memo describes a shipment of 137 (box?) cars carrying 7,642,100 lbs. of whale oil in three trains.

Ike

The SRHA Archives Presidents' Files Finding Aids include about 70 spreadsheets that cover virtually every SR Executive Dept. box and 17,000! files that date from the formation of SRS to the N&W merger. When we can organize archives work sessions again, reviewing and updating the finding aids is a long-term project. (In addition to SRHA and TVRM volunteers, we could hire local university students if funding could be found.)

locked St. Louis line coal train questions

Al Collins
 

Hello everyone,

In my research of the St. Louis line, I have seen mention of a coal train 291/292. 

From what few pictures and videos I've managed to find, it shows GP39X and GP50s for power with what appears to be 4 bay hoppers. The pictures and videos were taken in 1985/1986.

My questions are as follows:

Was 291/292 around 1980-1982, if so where did it load and unload?

With the exception of the GP39Xs, would this info be revelant for the 1980-early 1982 period?

Does anyone know of a HO-scale model of the 4 bay hoppers?

Did the 360000-series 100-ton cars get used on St. Louis line, if so, from where to where? Train number? Typical power? 


Thanks,

Alex



locked Construction of Fontana Dam - 1943

Some time ago, I posted the response from Champion Paper when the Southern forwarded the TVA request to suspend operations of the west end of the Murphy Branch for the construction of Fontana dam in 1943.

Here are two letters that preceded Champion's response. (There is probably enough material in the SRHA archives if anyone is seriously interested in writing a TIES article?)

Graham County shipped chips to Champion Paper in Canton.  I’ve heard, but not verified, 16 of these cars were assigned to this service.  Honestly, I find this number to be higher than “logic dictates” since the GC rarely loaded more than 2 cars at a time (based on photos).  Even cars in-transit and in-process at the paper mill wouldn’t add up to 16, IMO.

Thanks to everyone involved in the archives scanning project and to those who keep SRHA active and busy. I very much understand the need for SRHA members like me to come down to Chattanooga, and I plan to do that as soon as COVID-19 is over to be part of one of the work sessions.

I've still got a TIES article or two in the works, and I'll have to coordinate with all the above folks to make sure those end up happening and I finish them.

Ike, there sure was a lot of activity between Gest Street, CUT and Ludlow. Southern was the only RR to not have its locomotives and passenger cars regularly services at CUT because of the proximity of Ludlow. If anyone reading this has never visited the area, you can see Cincinnati Union Terminal from Ludlow because it's that close across the Ohio River.

I'm really in the infancy of a possible scanning/archive project for the Cincinnati Railroad Club, but where to locate our archives where it can be more accessible is the real question. So, I really do appreciate what goes into these kinds of efforts.

The CRRC doesn't have a huge set of Southern Railway holdings, but we do have some. Here's a photo I scanned recently from a print loaned to us of a Pacific in Ludlow in 1930.

All:

I realize I am constantly promoting the SRHA archives but it is hard for us to explain/show people the different collections we have and what they include. We plan to develop some "Zoom" presentations on various archives topics. Like everything else, help is always needed.

The "research" issue we have is that material on a particular subject may appear in various files. A benefit of scanning as much as possible is that we can organize the scans by subject rather than dig through different collections. Although 2020 has been pretty much a loss as far as work sessions are concerned, both Carl and I have been scanning and organizing files all year. We hope to get back to organized sessions in the second quarter. It is possible for someone to focus on a subject thsat interests them but...they have to get to Chattanooga to help. We will probably organize a "Gathering" at TVRM and the archives this Fall but I expect we will have a number of work sessions when/if the Corona virus gets under control.

With more photos to scan and organize the digital "Photos and Drawings by Location" file has more than 12,650 items (267.5 GB). We are not set up to make copies available but that is one of the projects we want to finish this year.

Here are two items: The first is one of the more than 300 items in the Ludlow, KY "location" file. Note the passenger cars in the 1952 era photo. The Southern's cars to and from CUT were serviced across the river. Moves in and out of Guest St. Yard and CUT must have kept the tracks across the Ohio River busy.

The second item is a partial list of Southern Railway Presidents' files that have been at least partially scanned. It's provided only to show progress, not as a catalogue of available items. Contact us at archives@... if you have a particular interest in a subject.....especially if you are interested in preparing an article for TIES or other publication. (Policies are not firm but it would be helpful if you are a SRHA member.)

Ike

PS It's not just my work at the archives! Jim Thurston (the Archives Manager), SR President Carl Ardrey, Rick Bell, Kevin Centers, Bill Schafer, Jim Howe and others are all archives stalwarts. It's all possible because of the cooperation of Tim Andrews and everyone at TVRM.

locked 1 more run of SOU/NS large chip hoppers coming in February

Jim King
 

I’ve reached “critical mass” in reservations to justify one more run of the Southern/NS G82/GS50 wood chip hopper.  I expect to begin shipments during the first week of February.  So far, 30 of the planned 40-45 kits are presold.  If you’ve waited until now to make a yes/no “buy” decision, time is running out, so don’t delay further.  Last date to make a no-money-required reservation is 12/31/2020.  Invoices will be emailed the following week and payment is required before decals are ordered in the 3rd week of January.

 

Castings left over from production kits will be inventoried and sold off as straggler orders come in.  When the last one goes out, there will be no more.  The kit will be retired and the body patterns returned to the owner.

 

You can view details, pricing, etc. here:  https://smokymountainmodelworks.com/HO_rolling_stock.html

 

Contact me off-list to discuss, order, etc.  If you’ve not placed a reservation yet nor ordered from me before, please include your snail mail address and the quantity(ies) of kits you want … use the kit numbers shown on the web page linked above.
