Wabash War Emergency Boxcar Part Two

Bill Welch
 

Among the distinctive differences for the Wabash version of the War Emergency boxcars is the look of the sill area so I started there by fabricating the long Tab that I have finished. Then I used short lengths of 2 x 3 strip styrene to create a beefier lower sill or plate between the bracing. I did not worry about being too precise with these as they will be covers with gusset plates.

I then fabricated the Towing Loops and used bits of .005 styrene to create their attachment flanges.
