Re: Accurate Santa Fe "mid-range" kits list

Charley,

What the heck is a "mid range kit"? Please define this with additional examples and priorities. Additionally, it all depends on what you mean by "accurate. For example, if "mid range includes molded on grab irons, I would reply that there are no accurate kits, period ;)

Hi Bruce,

I should have been more clear. I was trying to avoid mentioning manufacturers but Accurail, Red Caboose and Intermountain to name just three would be typical of the models I'm looking for. I'm not averse to a few cars with molded-in ladders, either, as long as they are close to being accurate. They are for operation and need to look convincing from two feet away.

The link that Steve Sandifer's posted is what I'm looking for. It's at http://atsfrr.net/resources/AuePeter/ATSF%201950%20significant%20freight%20car%20classes%2007-13.pdf
Although the list is for 1950, it would be fine. I'll keep a sharp lookout for differences between that year and "my" 1939 year for modernizations and lettering changes.
