Brill Gas Car Model 55
- Hi guys,
The Brill gas cars are being released in HO scale soon. The G&J and
FJ&G both had these and here is the info from a message on my trolley
Thanks to Jason Cook
Ken and anyone else interested.
Model Railroad Warehouse has a kit in the works for this type of car.
It is a Brill Model 55. Last time I checked their website, I believe
it said it was due out this summer. the Unadilla Valley, Fonda,
Johnstown & Gloversville, and I believe one other 'local' road had
them too but it's eluding me at the moment. On the Class 1 side of
the house, I seem to recall that the NYC had them and the D&H is
listed as having one but there is no record of it appearing on the D&H
roster so it is speculated that it was actually the car pictured here,
the G&J #10, as the G&J was a subsidiary of the D&H.
For anyone interested in this car type, Railroad Model Craftsman has a
nice article back in the April 1985 issue. Has drawings, color
pictures, and a full roster.
