Re: Brass freight car noise


I converted most to Tahoe and Kato trucks (and a few Bowser Crown for a couple PRR cars) which made them quieter and better running. But remember that freight trains definitely were not quiet during the steam era, plus "noisy" model freight cars makes it easier to tolerate a noisy locomotive mechanism... ;-)

    Tough one.  If any are boxcars with doors that open you might try stuffing them with memory foam (removable if doesn't work) or similar.  Other types of cars, I'm at a loss!
