New RCW gondola and boxcar kits

The Resin Car Works minions have produced a pair of new HO scale freight car kits.

The Louisville & Nashville added more than 9,000 40-foot steel gondolas with drop doors in the 1920s. These were part of their coal hauling fleet but were often used for other loads.

The model is available in two lettering styles; the 1920s as-built version that lasted into the 1930s, and the later lettering with the Old Reliable slogan. These are one-piece car body castings to ease construction. Both kits feature split K and AB brake components.

The second release is a variation on the AAR modified design 40-foot steel boxcar. There are two eye-catching lettering variations: Soo Line and DSS&A.
