A&Y Dave in MD
I have two "modernized" or "rebuilt" Santa Fe BX-0/14 boxcar kits (Westerfield 7852 and 7862 from Crossville, TN so gray resin flat kits). I am looking to trade for two different Westerfield Santa Fe boxcar kits: either Bx-X (4021) or Bx-W (4001) . I would be fine with one each or two of either kit. I would also consider a one-for-one kit trade.
The BX-0/14's are from my modeling time frame (1934) which is why I had acquired them years ago, but they don't appear in the wheel reports that I use as the basis of my current layout modeling (Winston-Salem division of Southern Railway and Atlantic & Yadkin Railway), and the AT&SF cars are a very small proportion of cars in those reports. So consider me crazy or eccentric or overly focused, but I want to get those car models that do appear there.
I posted this request elsewhere and most responses so far have been: you shouldn't do that since you have cars that fit your era. My response has been, thank you, but it's my railroad that I'm modeling.
Please respond off-list dbott at vt.edu with any trade offers or comments.
