  • Building 1870s Boxcars in RMC

    I received the latest Railroad Model Craftsman yesterday and noticed a great article by Joshua Bernhard entitled "Building a Fleet of 1870s Boxcars from One Kit." He uses the Bitter Creek kits of the CP 25-foot boxcars. He does several boxcars plus a conversion to a caboose, combination car, and powder car. He points out that similar cars were run on other railroads, including in the East.

    It's a well-done article. Check it out.

      Was thinking about you Mike when I saw that article. Got mine yesterday too. I see Otto has a basement finally. I hope he finish's the walls before builds his layout or he'll be moving accumulated items around later like I am.

            Bob,

            I think I've seen Josh's work somewhere online, but I can't remember where.
