LIRR Caboose Class N22B - Cars C62-C70

Post by nyandw » Sat Aug 31, 2019 11:44 pm

I'm working on diagramming/drawing the interior of this class for the current restoration project. Perhaps folks can help as follows:
The attached diagram lacks:

1: The interior door to door dimension.
2. The horizontal dimensions of the window area exterior/interior. I’ve determined the width (bump out) is 1 foot, but internal verification would help.

Thank you. Best

Cant help with that one, but I will say I will be offering these as a 3D printed kit early next year in HO Scale.

That's exciting! If you have the HO dimensions for the window area I can covert for the scale drawing I'm working?

Does anyone know how the hot water tanks are plumbed? And or a plumbing diagram for these cabooses?
The vapor caban stoves do not have a port for any kind of heating coil to be installed in them. So how was the hot water generated?
One of the ports to fill the tanks was equipped with a brake pipe style glad hand connection under the car, was this connection use to charge the water tanks with air?
Or was this the water fill port?

Also was the vapor caban stove the as delivered stove installed on these cars or was it a replacement to the original stoves?

Thanks for you help guys.
