Gold Coast makes two boxcars - the Rio Grande 40' Fowler, and the 1937 AAR standard design all-steel car, which is also a 40 footer. So, no 50' cars.

Do you have a picture of all your American models together? I would be interested in seeing your collection. And great work as usual!

Looks very nice (as all of your models). Where do you get your decals - the railroad specific ones?

Here is another freelance truck. The truck is an zil 157 from permo and a trailer from Ingo Schwaetzer (Decals from Microscale). The flatcar is from Lok-n-Roll.

Oops... But Zil-157 was 3-axle truck! :o

It seems to me that the best idea for the American trucks is to use ZiS-150 as International - it's almost the same...

Another 53' flat car with TT decals from Gerald: http://home.comcast.net/~jerryglow/decals/full.html
They are almost as good as the Microscales.
