First was with the mini-kit introduction and Lester Breuer’s model instructions, which you can access on the kit extras page. The instructions include all the prototype information gathered on the car by the RCW minions.

George Toman wrapped up an Illinois Central HO scale boxcar and filed a report. George started with a mini-kit that was given to many RPM Chicagoland registrants. The parts are seen in the lead image. Here’s George with the details.
Each year at the RPM Chicagoland meet the first 100 registrants receive a mini-kit gift. The 2019 mini-kit prototype was an Illinois Central single-sheathed boxcar from the 16000-16975 series.
