Canstock Car Question
« on: February 04, 2014, 02:07:29 PM »

Anyone have the new FVM Canstock cars?

They appear to have correct ride height, which makes me wonder if they incorporate an underframe
which could fix the other FVM boxcars - or something totally new...

Just wondering if anyone check this out.

I picked them up today it looks like the floor and sides are one molded piece.

Just picked up one to, the ride height is now perfect on these cars. Would love to see this new tooling make it over on the other cars.

Yes the floor and sides are one piece, the roof pops off and the weights are screwed down.

Mine are en route to DC . . . which means the USPS needs to solve Lou's sorting problem . . . :trollface:

Mine arrived today.  Been out so I haven't had time to get a good look at it.

Sorting problem solved!  Package arrived today in perfect shape - with computer generated label, so go figure.
