Thanks everybody for the kind words and encouragement!

Terry, I just fill my boxcabs with as much lead as I can fit, and pour on as much oil as I can afford. I also clean the wheels regularly and burnish with a soft (6B), dull pencil.

Here's a couple shots of my standard gauge boxcab. I still have a few things I want to do to finish it, like window glazing and roof details-and probably some more rust...

Cody,

The layout is great. You're off to a good start. You did a nice job on the little box cab. I have one still sitting in its box, and you have me thinking that I need to move it closer to the top of my stack.

I was thinking of filling mine with lead , like in the old Westerns . I'll give that a try , but may also change the wipers to a 'springier' metal than what is in the kit .I have the standard gauge version .
Thanks , Terry

Very nice layout and thanks for the picture of the box cab.
A while back I received from an eBay auction a bunch of deatil parts one of which was the non powered Grandt Line box cab but alas there were no instructions just plastic parts.
Not even sure if all the parts are included.

So after seeing your completed version plus the one that Terry posted a while back(that is why I asked for the picture Terry) I think I can now put it together and use it as some of the junked equipment for my Quincy Salvage project.
