MILWAUKEE ROAD Baggage cars back at SKYTOP MODELS !

Hello All,

MILWAUKEE ROAD express (baggage) cars are back by popular demand at SKYTOP MODELS. A new and improved master model was built to update the new castings. They feature much finer details than my original express car offering. In addition the underframe details are now all cast in place and I have added some detail as well. Castings are available for the original twin porthole door version only. Check out Skytopmodels.com if interested.

Thanks for looking.

I wouldn't say trash, they still build up into a nice model.

Here's the new casting:

I haven't purchased any of these from Bill, but the quality of the castings look top-notch.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Having built castings from both Jim and Bill I can attest to the wonderful first generation castings Jim made and the awesome second generation castings Bill is providing.....

Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Bill,

Excellent work. Those castings really outshine FUD printed items. Keep up the nice work.
