    Really been feeling lousy this week. So I desided to mess around with some rolling stock to keep my mind busy.:eek:

    Here are a couple of before and after pics of one of my Con-Cor autoracks.

    The floor conversion kit is made by
    Alan Curtis Models
    and corrects the wheel base on these cars as well as adding much needed weight.

    Very nice work, Catt!
    Are my eyes fooling me, or did you remove the "gladhands" or trip pins from the couplers?

    No Charlie your eyes aren't fooling you.I have removed the trip pins and plan tomdo all my cars that way.

    Catt,
    I've thought about doing that too, since I don't use the uncoupling magnets. I like using these bamboo skewer things that I found in the kitchen, to do manual uncoupling.

    You know, Catt, I've been so busy with structure building, that my coupler conversions, & other rolling stock projects have really fallen behind.
