Nelson's efforts raised the bar for our small TT community. Thanks to Al Reibel for working with Nelson to bring out the GP38-2 for the 'TT Scale Society'...

Re: For what era is this boxcar?

Hi! For what era is this boxcar? I'm confused by the look of the door. It looks like in the 1960s. https://trovestardata.com/images/Collections/4/items/101/101198_19.jpg Let's see...
