Re: G&D boxcar with Latino Bandito

Thank you! ¡Eso se que es!

I was thinking the steel boxcar wasn’t Athearn because of the low-relief plastic underframe, Athearn used one with an exposed metal weight, we had many of these as kids, we only had the MDC ‘old timers’, similar to the other 2 cars with thread truss rods. Also the trucks are the same. 

Also shown are several of the scratchbuilt and detailed flatcars I got. I built a few of these in HOn3 years ago, so light they wouldn’t stay on the track without a load, so I planned on rebuilding them with solid 1/16” brass decks, went back to O scale instead...
