That will help, thanks Dick you are the MAN!!
here is how the car is coming . But in pieces.
I need to figure out the windows and the top missing round rear part.
This car looks like one of the old "Iron Pony Co." streamliners. These were built around 1990. I worked part-time for a die-casting company that produced the castings used on their rolling stock. I actually made the die-casting molds for some of these cars!......couplers, door ends for the diaphrams and side frames and journals for the trucks. Now that was a nice job. Eventually around 2000, Riding Rail Kits bought the stuff. I don't know if they are still around.
One of our members of LALS was the founder of Iron Pony and has had some beautiful trains in that scale. I remember one train that was the Super Chief with ABBA F7's in War Bonnet livery. Very striking models!
