Re: Running board question (for 12p box cars)

Russ I'm sure many of us are interested in these cars -- I have
about 6 unbuilt kits and I'd love to know what running boards,
handbrakes, and trucks to use on any of the 12 panel cars for
GN as well as SP&S. I know there was more than one group of
cars with slightly different details.

In RP Cyc Vol 8, there's an excellent article about 10'-0" IH
postwar
cars with a detailed roster including the GN cars. With few
exceptions, GN used Morton, Gypsum and Apex RBs on all series of
these cars, so, take your pick! There's a picture of 18368 with
what
appears to be an Apex RB. Author Ed Hawkins lists "Great
Northern 40'
Steel Box Cars" GNRHS Ref Sheet #61 as a reference. -you may
find
more specific info there.
