Re: Roundhouse/MDC metal cars


Hi Gene, Tom and all,
This is a very fuzzy memory. I (very) vaguely remember working on a fixed bottom
Roundhouse (MDC) metal gon. It may have been a transition car where the body was a
plastic molding and the underframe was a die casting. Again, an even fuzzier memory of
it originally being an all zamac diecast car. I think the prototype or at least the lettering
was for C&O. Regards, Don Smith

Back in the day MDC made a number of freight car kits using metal

ever identifying prototypes for any of the MDC metal cars.
Ulrich had a metal drop bottom GS gon. Did MDC/Roundhouse have a drop
bottom gon as well??
