While my main focus is 1900 Rio Grande Western Railway, I've lately been considering dabbling in the 1870s, when the "Mormon Roads" were still under construction, such as the Utah Central, Utah Southern, Utah & Pleasant Valley, etc. Besides local roadnames I need a ton of Central Pacific rolling stock since the Utah Central and Utah Southern were known to buy/lease/borrow/steal CP cars in addition to some limited interchange.

My first car was the Crown Point Model Engineering Central Pacific construction flat kit, which fits perfectly because the decals included with the kit were drawn from Andrew Brandon's Central Pacific lettering diagram for 1878.

Trucks are Bitter Creek, designed for their Central Pacific boxcar kit, but they work for a lot of early CP cars. They don't currently appear on the Bitter Creek website (I bought them at a train show last year) but I contacted the owner and he says he'll have them up soon.

Paint was poly scale Erie Lackawanna Maroon. I used Andrew's lettering diagram and picked a color of my many maroons/oxides that looked good. Of course these photos revealed all the spots that I missed with the paint, so I've touched it up a bit since then.

I still have five more CP flats to build, but I think I'll assemble a Bitter Creek CP boxcar next.

Thank you all for the kind words! Here is the car now with trucks.

Josh, the car look really sharp' Good job man.
CNE1899 Posted - 01/14/2021 : 1:08:12 PM

The car looks really good! The atypical cars are always interesting.

Nice clean build.


Actually, if this car was designed the same way they did powder storage magazines around mines, the intent would be for the car to "blow its top" (i.e. to have reinforced walls but a weak roof, so the blast would all form upwards, rather than outwards.)

Excellent modeling, Josh.

Not something you see every day.

Nice work Josh. Don't think I've seen an explosives boxcar modelled before.
Interesting subject.

Paint and decaling done, now for trucks and the brake staff.

Decals I drew up myself, same as all previous models I've posted. You can get the decal sets I design through Great Basin Car Shops though.

Looks good, Josh. I like those Archer rivets.

Tintic Range Posted - 01/10/2021 : 11:19:14 PM
Body is now assembled. On to paint.

CNE1899 Posted - 01/10/2021 : 2:10:09 PM

That is a pretty cool box car. Your build is coming along nicely.
I am using the Archer rivets on my camelback build. At first it was difficult, but I got the hang of it.
I like how they look.

Michael Hohn Posted - 01/10/2021 : 05:45:30 AM

Interesting prototype and model. Iím looking forward to watching it go together.
