I can attest to the Westerfield ladders -- as a MoPac modeler, I'm now on my second order of them.

The ongoing saga of this car continues! 
Thanks for the tip on the Westerfield wider ladders - will have to check them out.
This is actually the second of these kits I’ve built.
Its predecessor was one of the first resin cars I’d built - made out of the old dark resin.
I built it in the stateroom on an LST. 
Made the mistake of test fitting the trucks and went on watch - came back to two trucks rolling around on the deck still attached to the remains of the bolsters - and what seemed like hundreds of little resin fragments.

Nice job on this early Westerfield car.  I did this car when it first came out but that car has suffered some damage.  I have decals for a later period and have obtained another kit.  One note.  The ladders on this and several other MP cars were wider than normal.  Westerfield now has the proper ladders as a separate part.

My go-to color for a basic freight car red has become Vallejo "Rust" - which for a while was sold by Micro-Mark as "Boxcar Red." I'll usually tint it one way or the other with either a crimson red or a earth/flesh tone depending on if I want to lighten and/or darken it. 
It's considerably less brown and a much warmer color than the old Floquil/Polly Scale BCR, which always seemed a little bluish/purple to my eye. 

Here's a car painted with straight Vallejo Rust prior to a flat coat being applied -

And the printed colour charts from Vallejo are of little help as well, as I've discovered
Best thing to do is take the photo to the shop and peruse the options

My only local hobby shop caters more to the plastic kit (airplanes, cars etc) modelers than Model RR but they are good for things like paint. I am going to be painting an Erie Boxcar in the near future and they have Vallejo and Tamiya paints. Does anyone have a color in either line that would be close to the color of the attached photo? I’ve learned the color name on the label means nothing. Heck Lester B used Vallejo Model Color Red Leather to model PRR FCC and it looks good.

Re: ATSF Boxcar 274525 Roof Repaint

John Barry
 

Bill,

It depends, maybe, maybe not.  If your car is in original paint, metal running boards should be galvanized.  If they represent a repaint, it should match the roof, non-skid black prior to 51, mineral brown after.  For Lester's car, if he were to depict it in the "Ship & Travel" scheme with a 1950 reweigh date, that would be a post 47-pre 51 re-paint from the as delivered and should have a black roof and running board.

Years ago I took a pair of "Kitbits" Dalman two-levels, and added styrene strips as journal-box retainers … I think they're on my first Seaboard B-5. Was Andy's method anything like that?

The Dalman/Andrew's in the photo represents yet another Andrew's variation.  Andy Carlson instructed me on doing these from a Tahoe truck at the bar in Lysle.  He h as d just sold me a GN kit.
Now if I could just find that cocktail napkin.

I think the 2-level DALMAN-ANDREWS sideframes would be much more useful and distinctive.
But that's just me. :-)

The enclosed picture of one was posted by Jack Burgess. These were widely used by Great Northern
and lasted into the late 1960's if not later.

Hi, Dan - 

Yes, the Dalman One-Level trucks will be available separately. I don't think Ted Culotta would talk to me anymore if we didn't make them available.

For the Dalman Two-Level trucks, we have a few options we're considering.

At True Line, we looked into getting the Dalman Two-Level trucks from Tahoe for the CP Minibox. That didn't pan out at the time, so we tooled our own and I have access to that tooling. But we need both variations Tahoe has available, and personally I'd like to give the business to Tahoe if that works out. But we haven't gotten to that point and haven't reached out yet.

But any trucks we produce for these models will be available as separate parts.

As for the Dalman-Andrews trucks that Tim suggests? We thought we were going with a different prototype for our initial project, and those are required for that project. Not sure if that will be the second project, but maybe we can squeeze an extra truck into the tooling earlier...Hmmm.

I'm just finishing up the last teaser page of models that we are producing for this project and that will post tonight. And the full details of the project will be up next week in time for Cocoa Beach

Dalman-Andrews trucks were also used by Seaboard (one class of boxcars, albeit a large class) and Soo Line (several classes of assorted cars).
