CB&Q SM-18 36' stock car

Post by TiTan downunder » Wed Sep 14, 2022 6:41 pm

In my latest journal from the Burlington H.S. was a note about an etched combo kit from Leadville Designs in HO & N.

https://leadvilledesigns.com/collection ... -stock-car

Being the eternal optimist the usual question was asked about doing it in TT and a POSITIVE response was received.

>> We can certainly make this happen for you. There are fixed setup and CAD costs but these are not outrageous. So some figures:
6 kits: $350USD
10 kits: $450
15 kits: $600
Decals included. <<<

So, I'm up for 6 kits, anybody else interested?

I haven't enquired about splitting shipping arrangement if others want some, but a bulk buy obviously gives a cheaper kit price.

Forgot to add that in my TiTan Models range I already have the correct Andrews trucks for the cars.

I will take one. Guess this must be my first photo-etched kit then.

Could the model stand in for other prototypes or is it CB&Q specific?

I'm having all sorts of (positive) thoughts about this. Let me sit on them for a few days and I will respond with something.

Also my thoughts.

Personally, I do not find the kit and the model itself so interesting, but I would take 1-2 pieces. It is an old model that fits the GC wooden box cars.

The SOO-Line had similar models. I could not find others with such deep Z-bracings.

The prototype of this Stock Car is even older, but its laser-cut model construction would appeal to me more.

I agree, the car is not exactly of great interest to me but I would buy one or two. Regardless, this is a possible source for other models.

I will put in for two of these (because you just can't have one of anything!).

As with others, these are not really my thing, but hey, if it encourages manufacturers to think designing TT along with HO and N it has to be a good thing.

These cars actually lasted quite a long time. The Burlington was a big hauler of livestock and even though they had wooden sides & ends with the steel underframe these cars built in the late 20's lasted into the 60's & 70's. Quite a few survived into the Burlington Northern merger, but none were in revenue service in BN. Some went into company service in BN, but none were repainted or renumbered.

The closest cars I could find to this Howe truss design were the ACL series 140200-140399. The SOO Line also had some similar cars but with vertical bracing on the doors.
