Reply to "Reading Passenger cars?"


 Reading coaches are relatively easy to come by if you are willing to do a little work. The American Models heavyweight coaches, undecorated in Pullman green, are a great start. You could just add decals and call it good if you like the earlier clerestory roof.clerestory cafe

If you prefer the rounded roof, Bill Lane is having some made that fit the AM coaches.

He also is offering battery boxes and the Reading roof vents:

I needed a few more roofs for my Reading passenger car project so I contacted my urethane caster about making more. The mold was old and dead so a new mold is being made.

I was not going to make a big deal out of it all but yesterday I got a bomb dropped email - he is closing his business - truly to pursue other endeavors. In a slight reversal of my "one and done" project sale rule I am going to put it out here for what will be 1 last time for sure. He is selling the equipment to make my roofs cast as hollow. They would easily weigh a pound each if cast solid. 

$20.00 per roof + shipping. Proof is in the photos as to what they look like when they are done.

Contact me directly with your orders.

 Thank You,

Bill Lane
