    Hello,

    I'll try to build some wooden oldtime boxcars with 36' length in n-scale for my logging railroad.

    So, I'm searching for some pictures of underside, side and front of the boxcar.

    Can any one help ?

    Thank's, Gerd

    I've got afew them packed away right now as well. course this is due to being on the road alot and no time for the layout. :eek:

    Try finding an HO scale Roundhouse oldtime car and use it as the template for your construction.
