Re: ATSF boxcar with grain doors


This is a great reminder that despite the complaints that we have about some of the major suppliers their cars can look really great on a layout.

With the recent feedback on grain doors you all helped with I took an Intermountain Santa Fe boxcar kit I had and added grain doors.  The kit is factory paint, all I did was to add a ATSF reweigh station, light weight and a repack stencil.  Before adding the roof I cut some 2” x 8” HO wood strips I had and stained a few for some variation.  Kadee steel roof walk replaced the kit’s supplied one.  The doors are held on with double sided scrap booking tape.
