Here are two - poor - pictures of the Rail TT flat car.

Here is a side view.

and here is a bottom view.

The car is on arch bar trucks. I may change to Gold Coast.
Need to add couplers and weather the decks. Need more lettering on the car as well. Will do some digging and see what I can come up with. Looking for three more in basic black so I can letter for my own railroad.

The only drawback of Moneygram is that their nearest agent is 50 miles from here :(

I would if they were offering online payments. They offer online payments only from USA and UK.

Could you transfer the money via paypal to someone in the UK or USA who could do an online payment for you via Moneygram? I have no idea what the fees would total up to, less than the fuel and time for a 100 mile round trip?

My three black flat cars arrived along with a steel caboose.

I have discovered two fragile parts of the car.
The first is the brake wheel. Some how one brake staff got bent and when I pushed on the brake wheel to straighten it out, the brake wheel disintegrated. Happily there are three different HO Scale narrow gauge brake wheels from Precision Scale that will do. They need to be sanded thinner to look right.

The second is the trucks. My shipment arrived with two of the trucks broken. All of the parts where in the box so i was able to glue them back together again. Unfortunately I dropped one of the cars on the hardwood floor and both trucks broke. I am still missing one piece so I installed Gold Coast trucks. Fit and work perfectly. Now to letter them.

The caboose looks good but is visibly short. Not horribly so, just different. It will do.

I have the same problem with the break wheel and trucks. Haven't been able to give them any attention yet.

(I do not know, if any wooden hoppers existed, especially in 1950s, and if any H0-scale models are available?)


Here are two ideas for Nikolay:
There were essentially NO "wooden" hoppers built in the US after the early 1900s... the same for gondolas after the 1920s...
BUT during the steel shortages in the 1940s, they built both hoppers and gondolas out of steel with wood siding... the so-called War Emergency cars, which were "composite" (both steel and wood) cars.:

These lasted into the 1950s... and later if the sides were replaced by steel.
