Some times it is even difficult to find an "adequate stand

Jim,

HUH? Perhaps in RTR, but in kits? Can you say "Westerfield"?! <VBG> And Sunshine, F&C, Speedwitch, Red Caboose, P2K Bowser... etc After all, many of the cars for my 1944 date are pre-war. There are a significant number of pre-1935 models available out there. This is true for stock cars, tank cars, reefers, hoppers, and gons as well (less so but still true for flats as well). Yes, there are some holes in the pre-1935 house-cars available, but the number of significant ones is pretty small.

Bruce
