Well...the group's objectives include and even emphasize the accurate building of model frt cars. However, the objectives include much more. From the STMFC rules:
include the sharing of
information about North American, standard gauge railroad freight cars in
the period 1900-1960 inclusive
including their operation,
distribution and the various techniques of building
models of them."
Not sure where global warming or world hunger comes from.
