About The Steam Era Freightcars Blog

This blog discusses all aspects of North American freight cars of the steam era, from the dawn of railroading through 1960.
It is intended to support the efforts of model railroaders who wish to produce the most prototypically accurate freight cars possible.
Prototype modelers are encouraged to participate in this blog. Please consider sending photos of prototypes and your efforts to model them, reviews of kits, books and other products, “articles” about your modeling efforts – with or without photos. The nature of blogging means the material can be "real time," and in-process models can be shared. These are not only welcomed, but appreciated as we all love to see a model develop over time.
Also welcome is information about upcoming prototype meets, shows, and other events.
Information submitted for this blog is considered gratis. Also, all submissions must include your name and contact email.
For more information or to submit information email steamfreightcar@gmail.com.

Resin Car Works Type 27 7K and 8K Acid Tank Car Kits - Update

Seems like this fall has lots of big news about little tank cars...
I received my Resin Car Works Type 27 7,000 and 8,000-gallon Acid tank car in yesterday's mail, and look forward to building it this weekend. I'll be sure to post some photos of the build on this blog.
In the meantime, RCW is gearing up to ship kits. Kits will be available direct from the manufacturer's web site (resincarworks.com) in early December - shipping date is dependent on when the photo etched parts arrive. RCW will accept PayPal or payment by check with a printable order form.

Here's the flyer showing the roadnames that will be offered in the first run of kits:
