Re: B&O Wagon Top Box - Model RR Warehouse?
What I'd be interested in a kit review is how thick the sides
are. It isn't really feasible to bash a West Shore M53 into an M15
(by notching the sill) because the sides are about a half inch
thick! If the styrene sides are, say .050 or so thick, that would
make the whole thing a lot easier.
I'm surprised that CSX doesn't feel that they own the rights to
the wagontop car itself, never mind the graphics. After all, the
wagontop is as much a symbol of the B&O as the dome herald.

GEguess itUnfortunately, Cannonball's releases are highly variable. Their
steeple cab electric was OK, but the last example of tooling Ibothered
with from them were the troop cars, and they were prettysubstandard.
The sleeper kits had large drift angles and very poor fit ofparts.
The rivets on the Troop Sleepers are the size of smallhamburgers.
Neither cars had representations of window sashes, and theunderbodies
were minimalistic. Walthers cars for roughly the same price blowthem
out of the water.Benjamin
