Jigs work out great Tom !! Got an idea for the boards btw, and a 1916 RR roman font if you like that. Most printers don't do white so I'm gonna print the color of the cars on veneer I paint in aged white..worth a try I think..

ALPS was the only, shall we say Consumer grade, printer that printed white ink. They have been off the new market in the states for several years now, not sure if they are available new elsewhere. So it isn't surprising that supplies are getting scarce and or expensive and or both.

It would be nice if somebody brought out white ink cartridges for inkjet printers. Use it in the black in position of a printer and let the printer think it's black ink when printing white on to decal paper. Unfortunately, there is no real good choice of cartridges. Seems like every time Canon, Epson, et al bring out a new printer they introduce a new cartridge design. Refilling a previously used black or any other color cartridge with white ink would not work well.

This thread is giving me a lot of good ideas. Not going to go for boxcars, but I am going to need a fleet of A frame gons like the SP narrow gauge used.


Don't push me bureaucrat, I've got a bit of hangover

I am beginning a project to construct a structure for building wooden box cars in. One side will have track to hold the trucks and build the boxcar. The second part will have a table saw and work benches to to the wood working.

What would this structure be called? What was the facility called in the old days of 1920 era?

First off Tom, you're smokin' on the boxcar build, as usual, looking good.

It would likely be called the car shop. I'm sure there are other names but you should be safe with this one...

The "Car Shop" sounds good to me.

Car shop : a fine idea, Tom, to have such a structure built to display cars being made.
Good jigs, good fit. Yours are good, seeing how the fit is.

A carshop sounds good, with cars in several stages of their build...sounds promising

Sorry to hijack the thread.
