Re: Throwback Tuesday: Varney Metal Freight Car Kits

Is that the original kit underframe or an Accurail replacement?

Eric --

Good eye! Yes, it's Accurail.

Time for the back-story -- this was a "boxcar rescue". The original Varney sides/ends, running board, a few ladders, and one door were scattered in a box lot given to me at MR club. Seemed too nice not to offer a second life.
