Back at Milepost 1258, I shared more information about the new Fowler boxcar from Accurail. They are now in production and the first “real” models of them are beginning to find their way onto hobby shop shelves and into modelers’ hands. One of the Pirates got a few undecs and shared pictures of them with the rest of us. I don’t really have much else to add here since I’ve covered the details that I have in previous posts but I thought that some of you… especially those who model an earlier timeframe… might like to see them. I don’t know about you but some of them are definitely on my short list for new model acquisition.
These pictures suggest to me that the folks at Accurail have done a really nice job. Eventually, these cars will be done in Nickel Plate AND the Cloverleaf. For what it’s worth, the NKPHTS Company Store will have some of each of them when they become available.
