Re: Boxcar Underside
I went to the link and clicked on the magnifying glass for a larger view. Then I increased my browser magnification to 400% (on the IE browser menu, click on View > Zoom).
There seem to be metal elements bolted to the bolster beams, but the actual beams may be wood. I initially thought the bolsters were cast pieces, but I now think these are wood parts.
The longitudinal beams of the car all look to be similar and I would guess it is a wood underframe with no steel upgrades to this point.
