Do you guys have *any* railcars left that aren't covered in graffiti?

Charles

Not that I've seen.   ;D

But seriously, I bet that graf is on 70% of what's out there.

I've seen a couple of clean FBox and TBox, but no real clean RailBox.

This is just an aside on this subject.  They are scrapping hundreds of RailBox cars at Azcon in Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania (just outside of Pittsburgh) along side the Conrail (NS) Conemaugh Line.  There must be at least one hundred cars in the scrap yard and another hundred along side the main on the Sharp Siding.  This has been going on for several months.  I guess these cars are around 30 years old now, and they are being cut up.  I have seen a few of the newer painted ones mixed in.  Thanks.

BTW what happened to LBF?   Does anyone else make the [F|T]BOX in N scale (or HO for that matter)?

They're around in Huberts now. New owner, new approach, new attitude, its not just yet another name change of the same old company as before. All in all I like the new company. Unfortunately there aren't too many shops carrying them. Wig-Wag is on of the online dealers that does.

I'm waiting on them to redo the FBOX and TBOX again. They have redone some of the other 50' and 60' schemes, but nothing Railbox, at least last time I checked.
