Best suggestion that I have is to use it for a car body shed on the
ground. True Line Trains (Life-Like Canada's successor) has advertised
a re-make of this car, and the photos in their ad show it to be a very
nice model.

Good idea, but I model Maine two footers and this is supposed to help
me represent a standard gauge train in Farmington where there wasn't
such a shed. I knew about the plans for True Line to redo this car
and still hope it happens. However, the owner announced here a couple
of weeks ago that the project is on hold indefinitely due to errors in
the tooling and expenses mounting up. So I bought this on a whim,
not knowing that it didn't come with a frame. Live and learn. -Jim
