Don Valentine of "New England Rail Service" is offering at least one freight parts set under "The Standard Car Company" label. The set is to modify an Accurail single sheathed wood end/wood door car into a door and a half Grand Trunk car. An article doing this was in RMJ very well done by Richard using resin molded parts several years ago..
This set is very well done with small parts like the door guides and the rivited triangular reinforcing plates that were attached next to the door opening on each side of the door. This is the parts set that Stafford made reference to in his series in the recent RMJ. It is #1000.
Anyway, I sent Mr. Vaentine an inquiry about how to get a couple of sets, along with a SASE but have heard nothing. It has been a couple of months now. Does anyone know of a hobby shop that carries his line?
Also I understand there is a German Company with a web site that has a lot of info about what is coming from Life Like. I tried "all_american_trains" on my search engine, as directed by my source but came up with nothing. Can anyone advise?

Unfortunately, Don Valentine (NERS/Standard Car Company) was in a severe
accident about a month ago while enroute to the annual Train Show in
Mass. (While he was stopped at a light, someone plowed into the back
of his Volvo at something like 40 MPH and put both he and his wife in
the hospital and totaled the car.) I talked to Don via email recently
and they are both recovering, but its slow going. He is however
shipping product - especially those doors, since I just ordered 25 sets
and sent him a check w/order.
I would suggest trying to reach him via email of smail again.

Don is a member of the Passenger Car List, and (lately) has been
posting regularly. His email address is email@example.com .
Let us know what you find out.
