In the early 1880s there was a massive shortage of reefer cars on the Colorado narrow gauge. To alleviate this situation in a timely fashion, the D&RG converted several boxcars to reefers. One variation is represented in our 24’ Billboard reefer kit. Like the other Heritage kits, this kit arrives as set of 3 3D ultra high resolution prints, brass etchings, wire and spectacular decal lettering. Fish line is included for trussrods. One of the features that makes this kit so pleasurable is that we printed the hinges separately and in such a way that you can paint them separately and easily attach them after. The car sides are designed so that the thick printed hinges “plug” into formed spaces. You paint the body and hinges separately and just insert the hinges. Clean, crisp; easy. The car is printed to have Kadee #714 couplers fall into place for ease of assembly. While our kit does not include trucks, we do produce perfect trucks for this kit separately that are the 10T archbars. These trucks are cast in brass and are a screwdriver assembly with KD #718 axles brass brake beams.
