Re: new decals added


Sorry - been busy setting up the old computer that was downgraded to the train room. The ACL set was inspired by my friend Steve Hoxie who I'm hoping will write it up perhaps in the SCL-Modeler (cuz I know John Golden has been pumping him for input).

I did a similar one years ago for Frisco (see:
You cut the side/roof casting apart and discard the roof scratching a new one from sheet and strip stock. Assemble the "box" using Tichy's 5-5-5 ends and an Accurail USRA underframe (necessary because the kit is a rebuild from a 50ton SS car and we're modeling a one from a 40ton DS car).

I can go into further detail if necessary but that's the basics.

Are the ACL rebuild changes to the Tichy model described in a magazine article, or is it simpler than that? Sounds like a car I would like to make.

At John Golden's suggestion, I modified the ACL rebuilt boxcar set to make one for an AAR '37. So you now have your choice (or get both)

I'm gradually adding new sets to my small line of specality decals:
http://home. ~jerryglow/ decals.html
Recent additions include sets for ACL and P&LE/PMcK&Y rebuilt boxcars, and a single door version of the Soo Line AAR '37 w/ $ sign logo.

My niche is (without criticizing the manufacturers) replacement sets for lesser quality offerings especially in F&C and Tichy kits and "bashable" projects for which no decals exist.

I may be interested in adding a set not listed: as usual, contact me OFF LIST
