- Some of the late Dreadnaught end PRR X29 box cars
- Several members of the early X31 family
- NdeM 1932 ARA box cars 60000-60599 (see above)
The other power hand brake that will be produced is an early Ajax power hand brake (there were many subtle changes to the housing over the years, so which version will be produced is not known by me) with no. 3059 hand wheel, which had only four "spokes" in the center - see above. The 3059 hand wheel has been offered for years by Intermountain, but is heavy in detail, so a finer version is most welcome, as its adoption was wide and deep.
Now, Rapido, why not do the Universal 5700XL with M1704 hand wheel that was used on many members of the X31A family (please)
Note: I did provide reference materials to Rapido for this project, but have not been consulted about the models, including any test shots of pre-production models.
Yes, it had been a long while since my last post. More on that in a post in the near future...
