Pickle Car Conversion Kit has been designed to compliment our
popular N scale Pickle Works Kit No. 625, the completed car
makes for an interesting member of any freight consist too from
the steam era through the early 1960s. In fact, photographic
evidence proves a few of the privately owned, similar appearing,
steel constructed super structure wood vat cars were still being
used into the 1970s.
to fit the Red Caboose 42 foot flatcar (sold separately), we've
found the old Atlas/Rivarossi 40 foot model, if you can find
one, will work well too. Although most of the open vat cars
we researched displayed smooth sidesills, we left the molded-in
stake pockets in place on our sample Red Caboose based car pictured
below as well as the car's original markings.
