Re: RI Fowler Boxcars
Well, sort of. There apparently are some differences between the San Juan kit, which is based on the D&RGW Fowler and the Rock Island version, although they are not critical, particularly if one is using one as a point of departure for a caboose re-build. As I recall, Charlie Morrill has an article in O Scale Trains two years ago or so on modifying the SJ kit for RI, mostly a new roof with different-space battens, and (I think) some door modifications--and, of course, replacing the distinctive Vulcan trucks.
I plan on re-doing one of my SJ kits for a RI car; the other will just get MicroScale Omaha lettering and different trucks.
