Re: Atlas USRA rebuild.


I think that the short answer is that because it is a rebuilt, each railroad's master mechanic had different ideas on just how to do it. Trying to use one set of dies to reproduce all these variations is pretty hard.

In the discussion of the Atlas 1932 ARA box car over the last day or so someone wondered how Atlas did such a great job on the 1932 ARA car but such an abysmal job on the USRA rebuild. While I hate to risk
opening a whole can of worms can someone inform me of just what is so terrible about the USRA rebuild?
