Re: N&W BL and BLa boxcars
I've been intending to do such a conversion myself one of these days. My original plan was to use the westerfield N&W class BK kit as a starting point and add a half door kit from New England Rail Services. Need to fabricate a door stop for the left side and the additional door track and hardware for that side as well, but should be a pretty straightforward conversion.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] N&W BL and BLa boxcars
A friend of mine who is very much a modern day modeler wants to try his hand at kitbashing an N&W class BL or BLa boxcar (Ralston 1923). Has a kit for these ever been done? I have no photos of these cars. Ideas?
