Haggis, mixing up things. That is why you guys should check Wednesday my list.

I meant the x47.

Thanks Jan.

I'll be in line right behind Al.
Will these X47's be correct for any other railroad? Irregardless :whistle: , one or two of mine may wind up with SP markings, and Al, I always liked the Erie diamond herald! :thumbup:

@gerard_k
The first batch with single door and straight tab will contain the following railroad companies:
CB&Q, NP, PRR and SP

You do not need to repaint cars in SP colours.

In this batch no Erie cars.

Ciao,
Rob

Hi TT-fans,

In the attachment you will find a short overview of three railroad companies with some 50 ft AAR single door boxcars with a straight sill. The railroad companies are:
- GBW
- NP
- PRR

All the cars have 8 ft Youngstown doors. If a different door is an option and not a version, than without doubt there will be much more cars possible without extra mold investment costs, such as the cars from CB&Q with a Superior 8 ft door. Next months this will become clear.

In the second batch you will find 50 ft AAR double door boxcars with a fishbelly sill from the following companies:
- DRGW
- NP
- SOO
- SP
- SSW

This weekend you will get an overview of these cars.

Please if you see anything wrong, react on this board.

Kind regards,
Rob

They look perfect Rob, good choice!
It looks close enough to these that I'm happy-

And the Erie and EL had several classes with double doors as well, either centered or offset so they will be helpful too. So I can use up my stock of Erie and EL decals! And maybe even cut a few up for 40 foot cars.

Hi Al,

Why did I miss the Erie car? I will add it to the list. I rather have a bit more single door than double door boxcars. Do you have another?

Ciao,
Rob

Here are some informations about the number range at CB&Q.

Are those ones, or are they only similar.
