Little Update, I've done a bit more dialing in and I think I've got the box cars now about as good as I can get them, I have swapped to wire for the brake staff and grab irons and created a simple bending jig. In addition to the Camel Door Hardware, I also have Economy Door hardware versions available. I've got some up on Ebay currently, give Gato Model Works a search and you should find them. If ebay is not your thing or stock on ebay is running low, feel free to find gato model works on facebook and send me a message there or email me at gatomodelworks at and I can invoice directly with paypal. I'm hoping if these do well to get a website up and running.
