    The first lettered Pacific Coast Air Line Railway car. A MDC old time stock car backdated to the 1870's in OO by the addition of HO 36" wheels to represent the 33" OO wheels.

    The decals were printed on an ALPS MD-1000. Engineer Bill and the crew are really excited about having a PcalRwy car. Now the underframe and trucks need a coat of paint.

    Just a thought

    Nice. How did you manage the Kadees? are they HO height or did you fiddle the underpinnings somehow?

    The bigger wheels put the HO MDC at the right height or close enough for OO.
