    Hi Chris,

    What a fine model - and an absolute centerpiece to the area... It seems in the pix - that you have some Moiré on the side of the building - are the textures mipmapped ? Also reducing the contrast on the textures helps this as well... Keep up the good work !!!

    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Folks,

    A single sheathed - - - fish belly or no fish belly ?

    No double sheathed - right ? I couldn't find a model or a pix of them...

    Still some tweaking to do...

    Used your labeling PDF and Tim's fine cars for reference...





    Regards,
    Scott

    B&O moved to steel cars early - in the 1920's. In the late steam era the vast majority of boxcars was the M-26, a 1920's clone of the PRR X-29 and the wagon-top boxcar built in the 30's and 40's. Thus there were less wood cars around. But not none. Yours looks good.

    Wagon top boxcars can be found in this set: xmc1947prr.zip

    Found this really excellent article about B&O's wooden boxcar fleet:

    Hi Christopher,

    Man - you're a walking freight car encyclopedia - thanks so much...

    I know very little about the specifics - I just model what I see (LOL - much to Dave's chagrin) ...

    Single sheathed boxcars have to be my absolute favorite - much like steam locomotives - their mechanics aren't masked - just hanging out there for the whole world to see...

    One question - I duplicated the dates from Tim's models - the BLT 3-19 I get - what's the B&O 4-37 ?

    Checking your link as well...

    Thanks...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Christopher,

    OK - from your doc - no fish belly and I have the wrong trucks... I've been meaning to make them - I think they're Andrews - let's see how motivated I get... Also noted the small percentage in use in 1926... Wagon Tops and X26 - gotcha...

    Regards,
    Scott
