Subject: [RealSTMFC] ACL O-17 Ventilation Box Car - "Watermelon Car"
I am trying to scratch build the ACL Watermelon Car starting with an Ambroid Kit from the 50s [One of my Cars for my NMRA AP Cars certificate]. This kit has all the wood pieces but no car details like the brakes, wheels, etc., nor are they described in the brief kit instructions
From my research, I have some pictures and have an idea of which details I need. But I don’t have specific types or sizes of the following:
I need pictures or drawings or parts lists showing these items in order to scratchbuild or purchase these parts. I found the ACL/SAL Historical Society and the NC Transportation Museum web sites devoid of rolling stock details.
Does anybody have any links or information that I can use?
Thank you in advance,
