Re: One-Piece Cast Resin Box Car Bodies

It's a non-issue. I just dug in the trash and found one of the casting fill tube stubs I remove from Resin Car Works reefer, boxcar and auto car bodies after demolding. Photo attached. I snap these off and they break almost flush with the underside of the roof so there's no "blob" left, but even if I left them on the whole stub weighs only 1.2 grams. That's all of 0.04 ounces. It's 3/16" diameter and 1 3/4" long. No effect on the center of gravity.
