I’m not very good at taking “people pictures, so I hope the modelers here go easy on me. If you look at pages 53-57 of this issue you will find René Gourley’s combine, which used 3-D printing for the carbody. There are different processes under this general umbrella, and, no surprise, there is a linear relationship between cost and output method. René (left) ex- plained what went into that model and a small ore car during a seminar and at noon, here. Mike Chandler (right), who has shared his work in RMC, discussed building with cardstock.


New Book


Last year Jim Peters brought models of Mexican railroad equipment and a diorama of a place he visited near Mexico City. He has not been traveling as much lately, and his mod- eling efforts have been repatriated. Among his current projects, shown at Burnaby, is a series tracing out the progression of traditional Canadian National boxcars beginning with 36-foot Fowler cars. The 1937 10′-0″ interior height car aboveis a Canadian adapta- tion of the U.S. AAR standard 40-foot boxcar; CNR received 9,300 of these cars between 1937 and 1940. The model was inspired by an article by Stafford Swain in RMC during the early days of the prototype modeling movement. It has a flat Murphy roof from Sylvan and the pre-war Canadian Car Co. AB brake arrangement. The carbody is from IMWX. (That tooling subsequently went to Red Caboose.) The lettering is the 1954-1957 scheme. Box- cars got taller after WWII, and the work-in-progress model belowis a 10′-6″ interior height car introduced around 1948. The HO model, a modified InterMountain kit for a Canadian boxcar, has U.S.-style eight-rung ladders from InterMountain and a scratchbuilt cushion underframe. The end ladders and cut levers are modified for clearance; end stirrup steps will be added. The prototype for this variation of a “standard” car was built by CC&F.
