Re: HO scale 3D printed D&RGW gondolas

Hey, those look pretty good.

I have the DRGW’s own blueprints for the 1922 car and having done most of the work to put it into a 3d mesh considered the notion of 3d printing it. It’s kinda nice to see someone beat me to it… one less thing on my to-do list.

Hello Group,

I happened across this seller on Ebay, offering HO scale 3D printed 42' and 46' Rio Grande GS gondolas. Here's a link: <> &rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

If the link doesn't work, the seller is Bonsall Scale Car Shops. I haven't purchased any of these kits, so I can't comment on the quality, but I know models of these prototypes have been long desired by many folks on this list, and I have not seen them discussed on this list.

They look nice in the pictures, and they are certainly more economical than the W&R model! I wonder if the seller is a member of this list?
