[LVLC] Blockcar for firewood

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 28 July 2020

During the past two weeks, I made the chassis for my new freight cars. Now I’ll start with the superstructures for each of them car by car.

The first car I made is a blockcar to haul firewood and wood blocks to the camps or steam donkeys. They were not only used for firewood, but also as stop blocks when loading logs. My model is inspired by a car used by the Diamond & Caldor Railway.

As on the frame sills, I cut all timbers from scrap wood. NBWs & hardware are Ozark parts with some pieces of brass as well.

So, first car done, next will be a water tankcar.

    Hallo Gerd,
    der Aufbau gefällt. Wenn ich die Klappen sehe ist der für Schüttgut, also keine Meterstücke?
