Re: does anyone collect unbuilt WestRail kits (or maybe even still builds them)?

C J Wyatt

A kit 101, Santa Fe SS WWII box car just sold on eBay a few days ago:

In my collection I have a Westrail F-1055 AAR 50 ton flat car (ACL decals). I believe later models have improved on the AAR 50 ton flat, but if anyone wanted this kit, it would not take much to persuade me to let it go. I also have a R-1021, " PFE R-40-14 Steel Reefer (W) as Rptd '42-'46 with SP Hrld L. and Late Style R/W/B UP Hrld. R." Same situation with that one.
