Re: Proto 50' boxcar roof removal

Michael Aufderheide

These cars (unlike Branchline) have the roof cast with the sides, not as a separate piece.  I have altered similarly made accurail cars by cutting repeatedly along the roof with an exacto knife even with the inside of the sides.  If you own a dremel using it would be much easier.  The stub of the roof edge can be taken off with a file/sanded upside down on sandpaper glued to a sheet of glass or other flat surface.

10 replies and not a one suggested how Mark could get the roof off : ))

I'd try running a blade along the sides, then try prying?
RTR sucks!
