I gather that someone must have presented an article in one of the modeling mags on converting
some suppliers single door boxcar into a 1 1/2 door car judging from the number of requests for our
kit to do this over the last several months. We ran out of the parts late last fall and then received a
fill order from our molder in which all parts did not fill and he did not notice it. Last week we received
a new fill order in which all parts are properly filled. Thus we are again taking orders for that item and
generally fill and ship such orders within 48 hours. Our minimum order has been reduced to $24 to
make it easier to order small numbers of such parts plus $4.00 for shipping and handling.
The #1000 1/2 Door Add-On kits are $5.95 each and are designed to be easily used with the
Accu-Rail Single Sheathed USRA style boxcars. Such cars were used in large numbers by the CNR,
GTW and other roads. The original article on which these kits are based was prepared by our late
associate, Richard Hendrickson and appears in the April 1993 issue of Rail Model Journal.
Cordially, Don Valentine
