Yeah even though the detail material does look better, the rougher stuff is not bad as a painted set of trucks. And I agree on GC's trucks - very well done.

Here's a builder's photo. It's similar to the USRA design, the biggest difference being the extra drop doors at the bottom (note all the hingework along the sides/bottom) and the ends; the standard USRA car had thin-ribbed Murphy ends.


hi marquette

did many RRs have this design? were the doors in the floor itself or are they hinged sides that drop down?

cheers

The car exactly as the G&F car, I don't know of any other roads that had cars exactly like that; they had hinged sides with the floor dropping down.

The standard USRA composite gon, which many roads did have, had doors in the floor itself and different ends.

Wow! That's a great Photo. I've seen these on OER's but never thought twice about them, I would love to model some of these.

cddx1, what scale do you model in? If not TT, we won't disown you :)

If it's not a "Vulgar" word here, I model in HO scale. It's the most accessible and reasonably priced for me.

Yes, that is why TT scale is much more challenging.
