Three flat car and trailer combinations of this type were built by the ET&WNC in 1935 as a joint effort between the Railroad and trucking divisions. These early and experimental TOFC units ran between 1935 and 1937 in captive service.
These models are available in HO (HOn3), and O (On30) Select the model(s) below that you are interested in to order from our Shapeways Store! Scale is selected on the Shapeways site to the right of the model photograph.

FUD - Frosted Ultra Detail is a frosted semi transparent plastic that is printed in a supporting wax.
FED - Frosted Extreme Detail is also a frosted semi transparent plastic that is printed in a supporting wax, however, it provides for crisper detail parts and a cleaner print overall.
WSF - White Strong and Flexible is a opaque white material that is versatile and strong. It has decent detail for larger scales, and models.
* I have found that Bachmann did not design their trucks to fit a standard diameter bolster pin. As Such, I have designed the pin to fit the trucks that I purchased for the prototype model if other trucks are used, you may need to modify the pins, or replace them.
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.
