Red Caboose killer-was McKean-Accurail box car (
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Bill told me that the economic hit the on-the-ropes Red Caboose got was from the money spent upgrading the former Front Range 40' box cars. The sales were way below expectations and I would wager that parts for these cars still lanquish in Intermountain's storage. Can't blame all of RC's problems on the FR boxcars though, a lot of the blame falls onto the 57' mechanical PFE Reefer, the R-70-15. Nice car with truck problems, this project was a bullet to the heart for RC.

Yet ANOTHER way is to use the much improved Front Range 4070 box car kits from Red Caboose,
kit # RC-8700. These have vastly improved roofs, doors, underframes, ladders, you name it. The tooling is
now owned by Intermountain, but I don't know if they still offer these fine box car models. :-)
