MAITLAND TOWER HO


Maitland Tower


Erie Crossing Shanty


The Maitland Tower kit builds into a model of the tower's initial configuration and can be modified to represent a number of other Erie west end towers. Maitland also broke up the block between Glen Echo and Cold Springs on the Dayton Branch and was used by the DT&I to issue trains orders. This served to extend the tower life more than anything else and remained in service well into the Conrail years. Crossing Shanty not included

WIP item. I’ll also explain it as “things I need to know” and maybe you do, too. Flat cars with lumber loads eat stripwood and time at a furious rate. What Paul Chandler does is mass produce loads by cutting random notches into the ends of wooden blocks with the kerf width and depth setting making the ends of “boards.” He then cuts the blocks into thinner strips and stacks them up. The ends of the slices are scored to become board ends, and individual pieces are glued to the top of the stacks. Lumber was once shipped random width and length like this. “Stickers” separate the lumber into four-foot lifts for shipping, and the whole thing is tied down with stakes. The wire ties are two strands of 36- gauge binding post wire (“really fine”) from an electronics supply house. Paul made a “twisting jig” from a block of wood and a stiff wire crank (


around a hook in the end, secure the loose ends and crank. On prototype loads the wires were twisted tight between the stakes with a short length of wood (
