These kits are not for beginners who are not willing to take on a
learning experience. Please read the instructions
before purchasing a kit to make sure that you can complete the
assembly. If you are having trouble deciding which trucks to
use, the chart listed below may be
of some help.
The cars are not necessarily designed to any specific prototype and best represent those that were around at the turn of the 20th century. They range from about 22' to 26' in length, but are easily modified by the scratch builder. The kits are also appropriate for On2 models. In fact, the narrow flatcar has a 6' wide frame which is the same as the Maine 2 footers. You can combine parts from a boxcar or reefer with the narrow frame and floor to get an On2 model. If you are interested in this or other possible kit combinations, contact me.
