Re: Front Range Products Kits
While the Front Range kits were close to the prototype of the combination door cars used on the railroads they lack many details specific and uniquely original to the actual prototype cars built by or for the railroads. For anyone looking for accurate 40' combination door car kit components to build either the CB&Q, GN or NP versions of these ubiquitous freight cars contact Chad Boas. ChadBoas@... Reviews of the GN and NP components are offered in the Summer 2012 editions of the GN and NP historical society publications.
If you are at the 2013 Naperville Conference, Chad Boas will be there, as will I, to answer any questions you might have about the 40' combination door cars of the CB&Q, GN or NP. The combination door cars of the Rock Island and UP were slightly different in design from these cars and warrant further study by modelers. If you can't come to the 2013 Naperville Conference don't hesitate to contact either Chad or myself for more information.
