Re: Accurail single sheathed box cars (was CNJ 12000 series)

Tim O'Connor


The 6 panel is an IC car, or very close to it. The 8 panel is a CN car, originally offered in resin
from either Des Plaines Valley or F&C or by the RPI hobby shop.... (the RPI kits were I think
cast by F&C, as I think the Yankee Clipper cars were as well)

Come to think of it, the IC car also was offered in resin by RPI and now is part of the F&C line.

Thanks to those that answered. Now what to do?

Tim asked "Which Accurail single sheathed box car have you got ?"

I have two actually. Got them at a swap meet for 5 buys each. One's the CNJ, 8 panel sides, Murphy ends steel corrugated door. The other 6 panel car I've stripped thinking I could use it for a Milwaukee car, but the Dreadnaught ends are the wrong configuration.  
These are fun cars to modify and I'd like to do something with these that's half way prototypical....
