Lookin’ good Bob,
Yup! the Rock Island does rock!!
I just might have one of these CB&T kits way way back in the cabinet. You have prompted the need to get an archeological dig underway. :-)

Here's the second of the six C&BT 1944 AAR boxcars rescued from the bottom of the unbuilt kit stash, upgraded with contemporary parts.
This one is C&BT's 12-panel carbody variation. Key detail parts include Yarmouth US Gypsum running board, Kadee ladders/grabs/brakewheel, Tahoe Barber S-2's, and Mask Island decals. Always liked Rock Island -- it definitely rocks.
