Re: True Line Trains HO Scale Canadian Prewar AAR Boxcars

Ben, I've uploaded photos of two cars John Riddell brought to the
RPM meet in Connecticut last June. Note the TRUCKS -- those are the
only plastic spring-plank AAR trucks out there other than Accurail's
and they are 50 ton and a different style. I wish TLT would sell the
trucks separately!

Has anyone gotten a good look at these models? The photo with the review on page 100 of the
November 2007 issue of Model Railroader "postage stamps" the models; the Hobbycraft website has
about the worst search engine I've seen (it is exceptionally non- selective in the number of
hits it returns). At first glance, the details look a bit heavy, and I don't like the standoff
of the ladders. The list price of the models is $44.20, and I'm looking for a second opinion
before I set aside my kitbashing projects for these cars and invest in these new models;
however, I'm loathe to spend that much money on models I'll have to rework.



The Canadian Model Trains site has better iages. Just scroll down a bit at their home page and
there are four links to take you to bigger images.
