This blog will be used to show off some of the items that have been created for David's modeling use and may potentially be available to other modelers as well. Be sure to click on the photos for high-resolution shots of the items.
The first offering is accurate photo-etched Morton Roofwalks for 40' boxcars in stainless steel. Des Plaines put out walks, but they didn't come with the latitudinal walks nor were they even accurate. They were missing a whole long row of holes. This includes the longitudinal walk as well as 2 latitudinal walks, 2 types of brake platforms (to fit Atlas and Intermountain boxcars), and the parts used to hold the end of the longitudinal walk as well as connect the latitudinal walks to the longitudinal walk.
Also separately available are the Morton-style platform that have been found on 50' boxcars. This is shown below:
More items may be available at sporadic intervals in the future. I may be up for producing other items that modelers need, but that would be on a case by case basis. Just contact me.
