O GAUGE

SAND CAR

LENGTH 10”

WIDTH 2 3/8”

By LONG VALLEY ELECTRIC  RWY.

   HERE is an easy project to occupy a rainy weekend for the model trac­tion magnate. Interurban sand cars were a common sight on most electric railway properties, and two or three gondolas of this type should be a welcome addition to your model trolley empire. They were often seen carrying ballast or other com­pany materials for right-of-way mainte­nance, but were equally useful for reve­nue service. As an example, the Hart­ford Street Railway advertised sand and gravel delivered in these cars to any point along their tracks.

This model is not an exact copy of a specific car, but rather is made to general dimensions representing a composite style. It does, however, have the appearance of an old Indiana R. R. gondola seen on a spur near Fort Wayne some years ago.

The wooden floor serves as the back­bone, supporting the superstructure, run­ning gear and coupler assemblies.
