Re: Alaska Railroad Hart Convertible Ballast Gondola ARR 1443

Thanks Ken, the Silver Streak car is not as detailed as I would like. The SP car that Tony talked about is a very nice car but not quite like the CNW cars that had higher sides and the end side panels were different with grab irons. I was referring to the Alaska car. The SP cars would be a good stand in. LK

Walthers, in the Silver Streak line, made a Hart convertible gondola. I don't know how close it came to the prototype that you are trying to model. That kit does show up periodically on Ebay (including now) and elsewhere.

Which Hart convertible gondola design? I believe there were several options down through the decades.

Sure wish someone  would do the Hart cars in 3D. It should be a good seller as most railroads had them and were also used in cinder service. LK
