Offered again: HO WP 1916 built 40' SS box car resin parts

Last month I made the offer posted below. I reduced the price based on the car sides having a slight inward curvature. A skilled modeler could heat up the sides and straighten out the sides. I have more parts available to re-offer the same set of castings.

Hello-

I have been preparing a return to offering a select few resin HO box cars. The tooling for this HO box car was made over 20 years ago.

I have enough parts for two of these WP box cars.

The buyer will get the following parts for two cars:

4 SS sides
2 plain ends
2 ends with lumber doors
2 roofs (Newly re-tooled to correct drawing errors)
Several roof support cross ties
2 underframes
2 sets of underframe cross members and cross ties

The sides will need to be warmed up to correct a slight inward curvature

Because of the sides I am reducing the price for these 2 cars.
Purchase both cars with shipping for $85.00

No paint, decals, trucks brake equipment are included.
I have just the two to be offered and are sold as a pair.

I accept checks or money orders. With a small fee I accept PayPal.

Contact me at <midcentury@...> of list please.

Thanks,
-Andy

Back in October I offered HO castings for a WP 40' single sheathed box car. Originally numbered in the 15001-16000 series, a class of 1000 cars which lasted in interchange until the early 1950s.

These castings had some issues which I considered blems--a nice car can be built with attention paid to the small issues.

I now have one set of parts which can be offered for the price of $45 and I pay shipping to the US.

See my original post copied below for more details.
