Three new kits will be available at the St. Louis RPM. Two of these are acid tank car kits. While they seem like our very first RCW kits, they are not quite the same. These new kits have slightly shorter frames from a new pattern. These are also available in company lettering not produced before.
Here’s a look at a finished kit.
And a prototype builder photo. Charles Lennig & Co. cars ran with TCWX marks until 1947.
Pennsylvania Salt Mfg. Co. cars held the PSMX reporting marks until 1954 when the fleet was sold to Shippers Car Line.
The third new kit is a UTLX class X-3 8K gallon capacity tank car with a long frame.
These kits are not yet on the website. Details will be added after the RPM.
As an added bonus, a few out of production kits will be available. These kits were run because the casting molds were good and there were extra decal sets on hand. You will need to visit the Resin Car Works table at the St. Louis RPM to find out what kits are back for a short run. If sales are similar to last year, most of the kits will be gone by the end of the first day.
Frank is looking forward to seeing many modelers at the RPM. We thank you for supporting Resin Car Works.
