Re: wood sheathed cars-"graining on models"

Denny Anspach <danspach@...>

There is relatively little science and an awful lot of perception in this thread- which is absolutely to be expected. Again, modeling is the successful exercise of smoke and mirrors.

MY perception of the appearance of the wood sides of SS box cars is filled to the brim with the irregular deteriorating boards and peeling paint so common to the hordes of Milwaukee, Burlington, and Rock Island cars saturating the house tracks and industrial sidings of myriads of small midwest communities in the '50s. In my mind, in this broad perceptive vision, the Accurail car is and has been "dead on", despite more objective analytical comments to the contrary.
