Armand, I did not realize The Frisco owned any Rib Side cars. Oh maybe you meant a completely different type of car from a completely different manufacturer. Hard to tell.

    I believe I have some of these kits I'm willing to part with.  They are at my other location and I will be back there in a few days, assuming I don't get flooded out here in N CA!  Send me an email to remind me and will check the closet there!

Hello,

Ribside Car has been out of business about a year. His closing was a surprise, as he did not give his dealers a chance to stock up before closing. He now has no email or phone.  I sold my last kits in January.

Did the "Ribside Car" Kits Lineup include the MILW's 50-ft single door version? I know the owner of this line is ill and kits are hard to obtain. If this kit does exist, does anyone have one they can spare? Is there a dealer that stocked this line?

Thank you!

Re: What to do with empty rolling stock boxes

Quite right, Mike. When REBOXX got started, some of the impetus was from owning a lot of Key Imports models in red foam. Red foam which stains brass. And which deteriorates and sticks to the models. Ditto for Alco Models green foam. And some PFM green foam. REBOXX investigated various kinds of foam to establish the best kind to use, which outgasses extremely little harmful gas, and also did similar research on the best plastic wrap to use for the same reasons.

A small warning bell just sounded……

Let us not forget that the brass model part of our hobby has a long track record of bare foam chemically attacking the models over undetermined amounts of time.

I think we can never be certain if the foam we use is aged enough to be weeping gases and chemicals that will damage our models from the on-going breakdown of the foam.

I’d say that the plastic wrap is a must-do caution with foam packing. Just one model with damaged paint and decal from being cradled in old foam for a short time is one too many.

    For years, I have always transported freight cars by first inserting into a plastic Baggie (two if a 50-foot car), then loosely wrapping it with a length of paper towels. The towels are wider than the cars are long (hope you see what I mean) and you get a cushioning and protection with a few turns of the paper towels, plus protection of details and paint by the plastic. I have taken model cars on airplanes this way, just packed in amongst clothing in a suitcase (for added cushioning) or in boxes. Nowadays the TSA folks take no notice of railroad models, though a decade ago you were sure to be questioned. I'm sure by now they have "seen it all before."

Re: What to do with empty rolling stock boxes

Doug,
 
YUP it sure can, especially cut levers!
 
The way I get around that issue is to cut out an outline of the model in the foam and allow it to touch the car in places where there are no "pokey" protrusions,  The area around the coupler, cut levers and reefer hatches is cut just clear, with foam contacting the middle portion of the ends & roofs.  
 
The foam you site is simmilar to what I use to cushion the sides & works great.    For cars with no clear open space to cushion (like a PRR GLA covered hopper), I first wrap in the thin stuff, the fit inside a plastic bag & then blocks of foam to cushion that.   The result is much like the way brass steam locos are shipped.
