Often overlooked by modelers is the line of kits produced by
Tichy.Among these is the USRA rebuild steel boxcar.Just how accurate is
this car?What must one do to upgrade an already fine model?.How many
rostered these ,or similar rebuilds?Armand Premo

These have been discussed at length, both here and as a project on the
Yahoo Virtual Modelers group. There is of course, more than one kit, so
you need to be more specific as well.

Kit 4028 is a PMcKY/P&LE rebuilt
Kit 4032 is for a Georgia RR rebuild. Speedwitch recently offered add on
parts for the radial roof group of these cars.

In addition, IIRC, Tichy used to offer a "waffle side" version - I think
Mont wrote this up for MM a few years ago.
