Re: What Front range and CB&T kits have any value

Ben Hom asks

Why cut out a Front Range floor if the same prototype can be
modeled from a Branchline kit?
It can only be modeled in the case of the 40 foot cars with 6
and 8 foot doors. Other Front Range models are different than
the Branchlines. The riveted 50 foot cars are quite different:
12 panel vs. BL's 16 panel. BL sliding door cars are useless
for the SP, for example. Front Range also made a centered double
door car with welded sides -- used by a few roads including SP.
