Milwaukee 40-foot, ribbed-side automobile boxcar,
George Toman shared an update on a June Workbench Wednesday post. Here’s George with the scoop.
Progress has been made on my Rib Side Cars Milwaukee Road automobile boxcar. I had the car mostly complete at St Louis RPM and since have primed and painted as MILW 6582. The lead image shows the model in primer and paint.
Milwaukee 40-foot, ribbed-side automobile boxcar
On my list of must build cars is a 40-foot Milwaukee Road double-door automobile boxcars. The 6500 series cars were built in 1942. A photo of MILW 6582 on page 10 of Railway Prototype Cyclopedia (RPCyc), Volume 13 is my inspiration. The starting point is a Rib Side Cars 40-foot, short rib kit with 12-foot double-doors.
Following are photos and some info on my modifications so far in this build.
