A couple of new items have been added to the Resin Car Works product line. All are 3D printed for maximum accuracy and ease of installation.
A new HO scale transformer load leads the way for your empty flat cars or gondolas. These transformers were seen in many train consists.
The 3D parts supply material for six transformers. Insulators, blocking and tie-down details are supplied by the modeler. More details and a Shapeways purchase link can be found on the Resin Car Works Scenery Stuff page.
The other new items are HO scale 3D printed freight car detail parts.
These Klasing ratchet hand brakes were often installed on drop end mill gondolas.
Preco fan plates are a common detail on ice bunker reefers. The hardware came into use on ART reefers in 1946. PFE began using them on new R-40-26 reefers in 1951. A tread on the car wheel transmitted power to an alternator that operated blowers under the floor racks near each end bulkhead.
Details on the Klasing ratchet hand brake, Preco fan plates, and Shapeways purchase links can be found on the Resin Car Works Decals & Parts page.
The RCW minions have been socially distant since we began producing kits. They are staying busy working on new projects. We have more coming soon!
