#526 Pickle Car Conversion Kit
American Model Builers has released an excellent conversion kit for a Pickle Car. The new offering would get an A+ except for the fact that it requires a 40' or 42' flat car (not included). Unfortunately these are currently unavailable ... so unless you have an old one handy ... you get the idea.
Pickle Car Conversion Kit for 40' Flatcars
ITEM # AMB-526

LIST: $19.95

Between 1914 and 1924, the Norfolk & Western’s East End Shops constructed 381 wood sided cabooses that would become known as the CF class. Numbered 518000 - 518380, the N&W cars featured a steel underframe, canvas covered roof, and wood roofwalks. Each car side displayed two main windows with an additional small window on the toilet side – this would become the standard look of most N&W cabooses through the C31P class. Our kit represents the as-built caboose with the option of modeling the car with either the original canvas covered roof or the metal roofing the prototype received in later years.

Kit No. 552 features: 100% laser-cut components with custom laser-scribed Birch plywood side, end walls, and cupola; Tab & Slot carbody construction; Peel & Stick window, door, and trim assembly; laser-cut underframe, end platforms, ladders, end railing, hand grabs, toilet hopper, window glazing, tool box, and brake wheels; cast resin platform steps and brake gear; plastic smokejack; and fully illustrated instructions that provide information on painting and decaling the assembled model.

We recommend the purchase of Micro-Trains No.1015-1 Universal Body Mount Couplers, Atlas No. 22061 Friction Bearing Caboose Trucks, and Microscale decal sheet No. 60-482 for the completion of this kit. Paint suggestions: Floquil, Polly S, or Model Master Caboose Red and Engine Black. Glue suggestions: Elmers white or yellow glue and a thick Cyanoacrylate Adhesive ("Super Glue").
