Subject: [RealSTMFC] Upgraded Accurail 36’ Fowler Boxcar

 

Looking over the research by Ray Breyer  done on the various Fowler boxcars and the clones I decided the Erie boxcar was closest to the Accurail kit.  I ordered an Erie decorated one but I wasn’t pleased with the size of the dimensional lettering (it looked too large) so I ordered an Erie decal set off the Westerfield site as a replacement.  I also sanded down the DS roof and made a new one from Evergreen .010 styrene and 2” x 4” Evergreen strips. 

All the cast on grab irons were carved off and replaced with Westerfield 18” straight grab irons.  Tru-Color MKT brown was used for the carbody.
