|THE SUYDAM CATALOG|
|Quite a few of the subscribers to the Interurbans and PERy "Yahoogroups" have asked that a Suydam Catalog
be posted somewhere as an aid in identifying these great HO scale brass models from the 60's and early 70's.
Here, then, are several pages from a Suydam Catalog that was published in the late 60's. As these pages are scanned
at 150 dpi, they occupy a lot of space. If you would like to have access to these pages, send me an email and I will
forward the pertinent Pacific Electric and general traction/trolley modeling information pages to you as email "Zip" files.
Your use of this information is limited to personal access for informational purposes only!
As Ed Suydam is no longer with us, out of respect for him and his efforts, these pages are NOT to be sold in any form,
nor used by anyone for personal gain or profit
My reason for making this information available is to promote the modeling of Traction, Trolleys and Interuban Systems,
and to, hopefully, clarify a lot of questions currently being asked about Ed's wonderful models.
|1465 Blimp Box Motor "Late" Run, Made
by Orion, Japan
|Pictured below are two "runs" of the 1451 series Box/Express Motors.
The model with the standard PE pilot may also be used as PE Wrecker 002, as well as a "standard" box motor. The other model has
footboards, so check your research materials to verify the era and specific cars that were equipped with the different pilots.
There are several other variations in detailing on the various runs of these cars, including the side ladders, rooftop detail, underbody, etc.
|Several photos of 1459, a converted Portland Box
Motor and a 1407, converted Portland RPO.
Note the stained glass arched windows on the
painted 1459. This model has had additional details
added in the form of whistles, cut bars,
safety "chain" and hand rails
|The painted Box Motor model is Catalog #1459.
The unpainted RPO model is Catalog #1407.
|As time permits, I will add as many additional pages of photographs of Suydam, Pacific Electric models as possible.|
|00157 with a painted, late run 1451|
|The photo above, shows a 1451 (still unpainted) and
the 00157 Line Car, which was an "outgrowth" of a run of 1451's. Note that both models have PE Pilots instead of footboards.
|Broadside view of a finished, late run, 1451 Box Motor.|
|Updated February 2006
Over 45 pages now available.
