John Golden tackled a neat HO scale box car project recently. He shared the following details and photos for the blog.
Earlier this year I purchased a custom set of HO scale resin freight car parts from Westerfield Models to assemble a unique Rock Island single-sheathed box car. Modification and assembly of the parts is simple and any modeler could create a similar car with a little time and patience.
Resin Car Works has released another version of the HO scale AT&SF Whalebelly 50-foot automobile boxcars. These one-piece body kits feature reversed Murphy steel ends. Two versions of this kit feature different Santa Fe decal sets. The previous RCW models had Dreadnaught ends.
It’s time for me, RCW web guy Eric Hansmann, to make a blog post. I’ve had several of these Red Caboose HO scale plastic boxcar kits in my stash for years. I needed more Baltimore & Ohio boxcars for my 1926 fleet, so it was time to build a couple. I started these earlier in 2021 and just finished weathering them, eight months later.
