It’s time for another update on Resin Car Works kits!
The CB&Q XM-32 boxcars (Kit 8.01) remain on hold as we await a decal shipment. Up next will be the SFRD Rr-35/36/39/40 refrigerator cars. These will be released at the Santa Fe Historical and Modeling Society convention in Lisle (same place as RPM Chicagoland) on the July 21st weekend. We will post a blog announcement when these kits are available via the Resin Car Works kits page.
A flat car load is nearly ready. This will be an electrical transformer load. Frank did a similar load for Sunshine Models years ago. This new version will be a one-piece kit with some extra crates.
Coming in the fall, we hope to release the Soo 50-foot, steel-sheathed automobile boxcar. If casting goes well, we will try and have the 70-ton Milwaukee Road composite gondolas available.
Looking beyond, a UTLX 6.5K gallon X-3 tank car with two frame styles is targeted towards the end of 2018, or early 2019.
