Hi Eric,

 

Thanks for posting.  I’m literally taking a break from construction of 3 Westerfield USRA boxcars today.  What a wonderful surprise and helpful info on the car ends.

Thanks,

Those of us modeling the real steam era are well aware of the car end data stencils. It seemed to be popular on several batches of USRA boxcars.

These are soooo much fuuuuun to decal….

 

I prefer the hardware inventory on the car sides.

The decals are much easier to apply on the flat surfaces.
