Blog contributor Charlie Duckworth added a number of fine freight car models to his HO scale fleet this past summer. He started posting progress details to the ResinFreightCarBuilders discussion list on Groups.io in early July. Here are a few of Charlie’s posts.
Wondering what the group is working on? Too hot in Omaha to do much other than hang out in a cool basement.
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.
George Toman submitted notes on his work building a reefer kit. Here’s his story. I have always liked colorful reefers seen in freight trains or reefer blocks. Fruit Growers Express, Pacific Fruit Express, Santa Fe Refrigerator Despatch, and many others have caught my eye. When Yarmouth Model Works released their attractive Armour reefer, I could not resist.
