Glad to see the "1947" boxcar set getting used - I made that with the PRR specifically in mind. It was basically all cars photographed on the PRR at Harrisburg in 1947 that didn't make it into the BLWZT PRR4 set.

According to THE POSTWAR FREIGHT CAR FLEET, boxcars represented 36-39% of the fleet in 1947, Hopper cars were 27% (covered hoppers, included in that number were less than 1%), Gondolas 12-16% (would be on the low end for PRR because many gondolas were used by Western coal roads instead of hoppers), tank cars 5-7%, Reefers 7-13%, stock cars 3%, and flat cars 1-3%.

By the late fifties, covered hoppers had increased in number but there were very few grain covered hoppers yet.

Glen Burnie was not a B&O branch, but was the Baltimore & Annapolis Railroad. They ran with a 70 Tonner. I cannot seem to find one in the file library.

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for the input. Much appreciated.

I have applied the same % numbers as close as possible to the templates where it is applicable.

As for the Glen Burnie template, Pete used the B&O RR to have one template made for this area. There is a Trains Magazine chart on the B&O network around the 50's, which I have used to establish the areas applicable for the B&O templates. Also looked at Pete's templates to make sure I don't drift away too much from Pete's allocated areas for each Railroad.

Another issue regarding the 70-tonner. In the Baltimore highlands area, some areas have around 2.5% grades, which reminded me of the same issue encountered on the Springfield Terminal RR template done with the Conn River templates. There if I recall, the grades was around 4-5% in one area. I have to manually change the HP rating to have it pull at least 5 cars to/from Springfield. If I would use a 70-tonner, I believe the number of cars to be brought at/from Glen Burnie would be very limited.

Let me know if any findings that would be useful for the project.

Thanks

Hi to all,

Construction of the B&O Templates are now complete! The number of completed templates has now reached Thirty-Eight (38). That means that all non-PRR railroads templates are now done: that is, the LV, RDG, CNJ and B&O. I am considering two packages for the whole template project. One for the non-PRR templates and the second for the remaining PRR template package.

As for the B&O templates, they include 2 mainline SB & NB (main yards only), 2 mainline locals ( SB & NB ), 5 templates depicting exchange of cars between the B&O and PRR Yards. The first is between the Eckington and the Ivy City Yards. The second is between the Ivy City and the PRR Benning Yards. The third is between the Penn Mary and the B&O Bayview/PRR Bayview Yards. The fourth is between the Wilsmere and the PRR Wilmington Yards. The fifth is between the Penrose and Eastside Yards. There is one servicing the locomotives at the Wilsmere Engine shops area. Also two templates servicing the Philadelphia and Baltimore Piers. And finally the last three are locals servicing the East Avalon, Glen Burnie and the Shepherd Sub locations from their designated yards.

Here are fifteen images from the different SLG-generated activities.

Now that the non-PRR templates are done, I will start focusing now of the most difficult part of the whole project, the PRR. I will start working on the non-electrified trackage between Marysville and Pittsburgh, first between Marysville and Altoona and once done, between Altoona and Pittsburgh.

Will be updating later.
