Re: Boxcar Underside

I've seen NP truss rod box cars with boards through the turnbuckles. Usually a board just through a pair. There is, or was anyway, a NP box car at the Illinois RR Museum that still had the boards in place. I may have a picture of it somewhere.

I've tried to model it, but things need to be lined up just perfect.

If seen that detail on both prototype and model narrow gauge cars although
I'm sure how common it was.
