Re: Tichy Rebuilt boxcar question


It's on my modeling page: Charlie recently asked me to do the decals so they're availble now along with a set for a similar ACL rebuild.

Jerry, didn't you have photos of that car? I have a couple of the
Tichy cars and think this would make a great project for one of them...

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.
