The Southern Pacific Narrow Gauge had a wide assortment of railroad cars, these cars were re-built as a-frame gondola’s around 1929.
These cars were Box Car Red with white lettering. To complete the model, paint and decal to your liking.
This model was designed to use the following for completion:
- Kadee #713 or #714 couplers
- 4’8″ Arch Bar Trucks (Blackstone B370109)
- 12 – 18″ Grab Irons
- 2 – 24″ Grab Irons
- 4 – 24″ Drop Grab Irons
- Truss Rods
- Brake Details
* These larger grab irons can be made using our custom bending Jig available here.
Due to the fact that 3d printing is a relatively new and in many ways experimental manufacturing technology and the fact that many of the models I manufacture push the limits on what is able to be manufactured, not all models can be successfully printed every time. Every effort is made to avoid any issues during the design phase, however, from time to time we do have unforeseen issues during the manufacturing process. We (Shapeways and I) appreciate your patience when issues do occur.
