West Central Model Railroad Custom Car Project
PRICE SLASHED TO $10 EACH!
West Central Model Railroad has embarked on a fundraising project to
help replace the aging roof on its building and possibly help fund
other major building maintenance and improvement projects. This
is the club's first attempt at selling custom decorated model kits and
the success of this project will, hopefully, result in more custom
decorated offerings from club.
Our first offering is a model 3700 kit from Accurail
which is based on an AAR 41-foot steel gondola. These gondolas
were very common during the early part of the 20th century on every
American railroad. These kits arecustom decorated in two styles
for the Milwaukee Road. The No. 82078 is based on a war emergency
hopper with CMStP&P lettering and has a 1923 build date with a 1956
reshop date for modern use. There are renumber decals available
for up to 12 82000 series cars. The No. 93026 is a standard post
war Milwaukee Road gondola with a 1946 build date. There are
renumber decals available for up to 12 93000 series cars.
The cars are priced at $10 for each kit with shipping and handling
extra. Shipping and handling is $3 for the first kit plus $1 for
each additional kit with a maximum charge of $13. Renumber decals
will be included for multiple kit purchases.
