Managed to get some models done this week.

[

First up is a CNJ 40' 1944 AAR Boxcar built surprisingly in 1944, originally in express service, they were designated BX, with the fall off of passenger service they were re-designated XM class boxcars and integrated in the freight pool. Front Range kit with A-Line sill steps, painted with Scalecoat II Oxide Red, they lettered with Tichy (Former Jerry Glow) Decals.



Front Range Combination Door 40' Boxcar kit, the GN used these primarily in lumber service thanks to the 13' door opening. They used the plug door so they would have a smooth inner surface when the cars were pressed into grain service during the fall grain rush. These cars were built in the late 40's and this is a mid 50's repaint. Car was painted with Scalecoat II ATSF Red and then also lettered with the Tichy (Former Jerry Glow) decals.

Thanks for looking!

I managed to finish a couple of cars this week!



One of many 50' PS1 Boxcars purchased by the Rock Island in the early sixties, this in a 1964 purchase of a Hydroframe 60 Equipped car. Kadee supplied this kit, painted with Scalecoat II Oxide Red and lettered with Mask Island decals.



Another 50' PS1 Boxcar with Combination Doors purchased by the UP in 1966, just before the bann on roofwalks came in. I left it in the as delivered state. I also always liked the Autmoated Road paint scheme. Car is an Intermountain Railway Kit, added a Details West Coupler pocket to replicate the Keystone end of car Cushioning System along with A-Line Sill Steps. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Reefer Yellow and Floquil Platinum Mist Paints then lettered with Mask Island Decals.

Thanks for looking!
