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.
Frank wanted to offer an update on this Milwaukee gondola kit as we have teased this before. Are there any Milwaukee Road fans out there?
