40' Double Door (12 wide) Box

GN Car Series:
3500-3999


 Model Manufacturer and Description (HO Scale only):

Accurail 40' Double Door Box

Red Caboose ACF single door boxcar

Modeling Notes:

Accurail - Straighten bottom side sill. *Roof line should be recessed as on prototype. However, once the model is painted, decaled, weathered looks good to me (after the models were weathered I could not tell the difference between the model and a prototype photo).

Red Caboose ACF single door boxcar - Make recessed roof by adding .020 styrene strip at top of ends before gluing on roof.

Add second 6 door. Straighten side sills and add door guides for new door.

Prototype Paint Color:

Vermillion Red
Big Sky Blue
Glacier Green

Recommended Decals:


Vermillion Red Champ BRH-333
Glacier Green - Microscale 87-926 or Champ BRH-72

Big Sky Blue - Microscale 87-268 or Champ 385
