First Print of Greenville Auto Boxcar.

Howdy. Here is the first article of a Greenville 60' autobox...I generally model 60's/50's but decided in TT I would focus on 1980's or there abouts. I want to be able to use modern cars with roof walks and still retain the bay window cabeese I am working on. Once I get a SW 1200 I can upgrade it with all sorts of SP bits and pieces and work on a modern-ish layout. I am hoping to get this cleaned up and in to a mold at some point and make a few...
This was printed using a Formlabs 2 at medium resolution...loving having the ability to print what I need. The next learning curve for me will be drawing up switch platforms and bending rail to make my own switches. "growing" them allows me to stitch them together in the data base to make more complicated set ups.

This particular car took 11 hours to print, probably twice that long at full resolution..

Cheers

Joe

OK, OK, I'll admit- I'm drooling! The EL had a few of these and they were really common in through trains back in my era. When you're ready to start casting them up put my name down for several!

There is some good information about the Greenville-built 7100cf double plug-door cars on the ExactRail site:

..also a partial list of Greenville owners on the Atlas Board:
