  • Marsh Creek (sorta) boxcar

    I dug out a Marsh Creek HOn30 boxcar. No instructions (probably put them in the wrong box), and a few extra parts. I ended up making the undercarriage too deep, but I recovered by letting some undercarriage show and by adding external end sills and buffer blocks. Looks OK!

      20', I think.



      Just needs final boxcar red paint, trucks and couplers.

        It looks good. like the car shop didn't understand how to put the kit together or they built the box on top of a flatcar.

          I'm OK with #2 even if #1 is the more correct explanation.

          I -have- seen cars where you could see some part of the undercarriage. But as a "one-of" on the narrow gauge, "built on top of a flatcar" would be appropriate. And I'm sticking to that story!

            Looks great Dave,

            West Side Lumber (I think) had some boxcars that rode on flats like that. Prototype for anything!
