Re: Where's this one come from?

The RI 133000 – 133999 series was split between Betterdorf and ACF.  The ACF cars (500-999) had a roof fascia on the car end, as does the Fort Dodge car.


Here’s a photo in all its earlier glory.

This is a former Rock Island B-2 "Fowler Clone" from their 133000-133999 series.  No model yet but it might be kit-bashed from the Westerfield offerings.  A specific model is planned by one of our smaller resin model suppliers.
