Passenger Cars:

  • DL&W Boonton Coach - Slightly detailing the Funaro & Camerlengo resin kit.
  • DL&W Boonton Combine - An easy kitbash from the F&C kit.

  • DL&W Baggage Car Kitbash - Kitbashing a clerestory roof baggage car from an IHC heavyweight.
  • DL&W Railway Post Office - I recently purchased one of these BCW kits from the ELHS. Someday I'll start work on it.
  • DL&W Railway Post Office (from International Hobby Corp) - I got one of these for Christmas 2006. At this moment I'm not going to compare it line by line with the prototype. I painted the roof and undercarriage grimy black, changed the trucks and installed body mounted kaydees. I'm happy and actually have one of these in the GMY and pullman green (another gift.)
  • DL&W M.U.s - Some musings on kitbashing these unpowered cars.
  • Erie Stillwell Coach - From F&C. Only for that 'Day After the Merger' train.
