Re: International Caboose Kits

I am still working on my two Wright Trak kits. I wanted to share something that I found: A company called Utah Pacific sells a part called locomotive rearview mirror part # RM-77. It is perfect fit for the ACY's distinctive cupola mirrors! Wright Track pilot holes are already in the correct places. ...

ex DT&I boxcars for Campbell's Soup

Has anybody built or bashed one of these xmi's? I was wondering if either the Con-Cor 40 plug door or the Atlas Trainman insulated box would be a good starting point. Thanks.

Re: Scale drawings for F-M H20-44 (AC&Y 500-508)

It would be AWESOME if someone could do a 3-d printed body using said drawings. Even if the resulting locos were unpowered, we could still couple them up to our slightly easier to obtain H-15/16-44's. When the brass H-20-44's do show up on ebay they are always out of my price range.

I love it! I will have to add one to my HO roster. I love Roger Durfee's photography.

Re: New products:

Athearn has announced yellow ACY 40 foot boxcars in multiple road numbers for a late fall release. These are in their R-T-R line. They are taking reservations now at their website. I am thinking of reserving Christmas gifts for myself. :)

If you live in Akron and model in HO scale, Hilltop Hobby Shop has a few of these life-like/walthers kits in stock and priced below list. Mine is coming along nicely.

Re: Non Revenue Roster

Thanks everyone for your ideas, information, and feedback. I picked up a nice 36' reefer of unknown manufacturer at the dalton train show that I am going to use as a starting point. But before I do, I need to finish the three cabeese that I have started. I have 2 wrighttrak.com ICC models and one pr...
