Detailing Freight Cars by Jeff Wilson (Softcover)

More than 200 Photos & Diagrams

87 pages

Your model railroad deserves great-looking, smooth-running rolling stock. Of all the ways to add realism and character to a layout, detailing your freight cars may be the least expensive and easiest of all.

In clear, step-by-step photos, this book shows you how to make off-the-shelf freight cars come to life. With little effort, you can weather and detail each one to reflect its own unique working history, just like the prototype. And while you're making your freight cars look better, you can also make them run better with operating upgrades to couplers and wheelsets. This book includes information and tips about

  • adding brake and underbody details
  • upgrading couplers and trucks
  • weathering and painting
  • using accurate decals for placards and markings
  • replacing running boards and body details
  • making realistic freight loads

The techniques in this essential guide apply to all scales.
