    Default Evans Double door boxcars.

    I have been going thru all the SLI/TS boxcars looking for a car that is close to the evans company style and i haven't found one. Can anyone suggest one that they would think is close I found many double door Hi cube but all these high cubes are also ribbed and the ribs are built into the s file so that can't be changed.

    Help me out please gentlemen.

    Would you mind sharing a pic of the specific look that you are looking for? When I think of an Evans boxcar, I think of something like Ted Curphey made years ago, like the cars in 6pack46.zip in file library.

    Used to handle these cars way back when I worked for my defunct lumber company... get lots of Georgia-Pacific, Weyerhauser, and PMA (Plywood Marketing Associates) cars to unload lumber, plywood and building materials for distribution.. Fun times...

    I have been rummaging through all the SLI cars we have from them and we really do not have one that is not High cubed and what I am looking for is the 1960 1970 time frame.

    Dave can I drop you an email later on I need some help.

    Michelle, Tiger Trains might have what you're looking for. I don't know what TTs repaint policy is let alone if they are available. As most of us are aware, the owner of TT had had some rude run ins with a certain individual and has closed the site on and off because of that issue. I play with RW/TS these days and have not ordered anything from TT in 3-4 years. Here's a link for those cars. https://www.tigertrains.com/Store/in...gory&path=3_19

    Tiger Trains does not allow repaints.

    The USLX cars are a special interest of mine and I have a collection of prototype photos I can share with you if you'd like.

    I dont think those are the cars Michelle was looking for... TT sells the "all door" boxcars, whats she is looking for specifically is these USLX cars like the ones pictured below..
