" Working on a template for checker-plate for my R111 cars,
only need enough for 8 cars,
then onto a couple of TRI-ANG tank car conversions "
I see on your No.8 Hopper Car R111, you've mounted knuckles.
Also changed the trucks, by the looks of things.
Those darn truck mounting RIVETS, are a killer to remove without damage !
This ^^ 'Tri-ang' R111 Hopper Car, is from a bunch I got on eBay, inc. some Covered Hoppers.
They were all a bit beaten up, to say the least, & painted a kinda 'British Rail' (ish) livery.
Not bad though, for Dr. Frankenstein to practice producing some MONSTER ore-cars from !
I'm looking forward to seeing your R111 progress Ken ...
... & of course any 'Tri-ang' Tank Car conversions, sound GREAT to me !
Go on Ken ... Time to start a new 'Tri-ang' Hopper Car & Tank Car BASHing Thread !!
