Hi all.

I planned making rolling stock after completion of tender engine No. 2.
Showing here are the examples which I made (I'm making) simply.
Please confirm with  photographs rather than my poor English.  ;)

Plantation Boxcar-like Four-Wheel Boxcar

















Completion!









To be continued. :bg:

That sure is some very nice modeling, you should be pleased with the result.

The final colours work extremely well

The 4 wheel cars, the 2-4-0...the very early D&RG had them. Wonderful modeling.

Fantastic job, Junior!

I think that the car looks very good in the weathered gray color.

Keep up the excellent work---

And thank you for sharing the photos.

That came out fantastic and like how you used the stake pocket castings for the door guides and stops. Thinking out of the box that came out great

Thanks Don,

I always use TAMAIYA spray cans for body painting.
Weathered by powder of pastel chalks and soot.
I make models only by a very easy method.  :bg:


Thanks Woodie,

I think that the early D&RG engines and freight cars were very small for three-foot gauge railroad.
Yes, I referred also to D&RG's four-wheelers.


Thanks Herb,

As mentioned above, I have only easy paint technique.
If paint is well possible, that will be because my fate is good. ;)


Thanks Phil,

Realistic?
But, there was no plantation boxcar ran on two-foot gauge common carrier.....


Thanks rich,

Necessity is the mother of invention.
Parts are according to usage.
A junk box is a treasure box.  ;)


Regards,
Junior

Since I have never seen a picture of the early D&RG boxes in action here they are in a virtual world:

Thanks for the beautiful picture, Harold.

Also I have a plan of other four-wheel boxcar.
But, next is in On30.
It may become a thing similar to the D&RG four-wheeler.

Hi all,

I'm back. :bg:
This time I show the progress of a M of W car.

M of W car No. 01

I started building this as a bobber caboose.



I cut AHM HO scale heavy weight passenger car side windows.







Modified AHM HO scale trolley car truck.



Mm......It is too common. L:



It was decided to rebuild as M-O-W car!









To be continued. :bg:
