Gold Coast 40' Fowler wood boxcar

Postby AstroGoat760 » Thu Jul 08, 2010 2:55 pm

The Gold Coast 40' Fowler wood boxcar is roughly 4.1 inches long, 0.95 inches wide, and 1.35 inches tall.

One thing to point out is that we had an issue with how well the trucks were attached, both trucks fell off of the car after the car was pulled out of the box, and one of the trucks actually came apart. A dab of cement and the truck went back together again OK. The screws used for the truck mounting seem to be a bit short, considering the profile of the truck and the underside of the car.

We are trying to find longer screws to use in this car, to keep the trucks in place.

Here are photos of the car:

Can't say that I do. I have used pictures of prototype equipment to help determine where things go on the model as needed.

There are two "steps". They are nearby the brake wheel. I can't find the place where does they should be.

Those are not steps, those things support the ends of the running board.
