    Excellent model and excellent detail. Looks like an HOn3 brass engine.

    Why is it called a boxcab?;)

    Flash, way back years ago some of the roads used Box Cars for the start of their projects thus box cabs. Put box cabs in your search engine, you will come up with some dooseys. Jim:D

    Re: pioneer CN diesel boxcab

    If I were doing it, I would probably settle for two Blombergs from an F unit placed end to end. Close enough without being too fussy and the drive train would be a snap to modify. Crispy Crinkles, don't get me started on another 'bash, got too many on the fire already:p :eek:

    CN Boxcab Diesel

    Good suggestion. Hey, with my eyesight the trucks could be anything at all!!! What I do need is some drawings of the unit(s) to figure where I go from there.
