Re: Tichy Rebuilt boxcar question


I cut it off and replaced it with sheet and strip stock for mine.

Jerry - if I can sand off the Tichy kit's roof without too much damage I'll use the new Frisco decals you just sent me. I'd rather have a Frisco car than another P&LE on the layout.

If it's unbuilt it makes a good basis for a Frisco 8 panel USRA rebuild from a DS car. I just did decals for it in 3 versions (with and w/o "Lines" in a small herald and large herald with Frisco Fast Freight on the right. The latter started being applied approx late '52 with possibility of the others esp w/o "Lines" in '54.

The ACL set is also good for the same bash.

Unfortunately, these cars were never relettered for NYC, and other NYC rebuilt boxcars differed in height and ends. However, Sunshine did mini-kits (Jim Hayes Number "MK-15B", consisting of ends, center sill, decals) converting this model to Wabash 82000-82513 boxcars equipped with auto racks. This conversion could also be the basis for similar Wabash DS boxcar rebuilds - see my rebuilt boxcar spreadsheet in the files section for more Wabash possibilities.
