Re: End Mill Advice for ABS Plastic
Hi Jeff. The first car will definitely be an experiment - both with the model and tooling/setup. With new side ribbing (vertical and horizontal), a change to the arch ends and other above-the-sill changes, I hope to get to at least a passing resemblance.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
My medium-term goal is to build a train that resembles one in a 1936 aerial photo that shows a nice variety of gondolas, short/high 55t HPs and long/low 70t HUs - and a nice variety of coal grades in each.
But first, I need to cut those H2a ribs off!

The HU was rebuilt and reclassified H3. Similar to H2/H2a but none look anything like the HU.
I've been wishing for that hopper 35 years.

Hi all. I recently purchased a set of BLI N&W H2a hopper cars with the intent of back-dating them to something resembling an HU. Based on what I know, H2a’s are identical to H2s, which were rebuilt HUs. So I figure the car is as good as any for a starting point, from a dimensions point of view. Back dating the three hoppers to four might be a problem, but I’m ignoring that minor detail for now.
