George Toman shares his work updating a couple HO scale reefer kits. George has some cool techniques in this post.
In 1923, the Western Pacific joined Pacific Fruit Express (PFE) and added a number of cars to the PFE fleet. The cars were built to current PFE standards and designs. They featured a WP herald on the right side. Although owned by the WP, were part of the general PFE fleet.
Resin Car Works has a new HO scale kit; a Pacific Fruit Express R-30/40-9 reconditioned wood reefer! This kit features a one-piece carbody to ease assembly and includes several detail parts. This kit reflects the cars bearing the Western Pacific emblem.
