Now Available! New Paint Schemes and Road Numbers of the HO Scale: 3839 Ribside Boxcar

I am very interested in these beautiful and very unique boxcars. They will look great running along with all the other great Milwaukee Road freight cars you have produced.

Interested in “as delivered” scheme, or early update. I model 1950.

Any possibility of undecorated kits included in the run? We kit builders are dying for some ribsides to build!!

Beautiful, just beautiful, and such a unique prototype. Would you consider to make a version with a repaint date in the 1948-1953 range? Many transition state modelers like me should be interested in it. The box cars in my freight trains are 60-70% home road (Santa Fe), but for the remaining 30-40%, I strive for some variety in design.

Thanks

Ohhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhh. They look real nice. I feel the palms of my hands itching (a basic response to something that I like!) Note-train related response!
