More Hawk boxcars

To follow up on the recent post on Hawk, I received from Dick Gresham this copy of a Hawk boxcar instruction sheet.

It is for the 40-foot boxcar. Click on it for a close-up and go over to the photo of the cars, it is the same as in the advertisement in Model Railroader.

Also here is a photo of my 50’ boxcar in parts. It is mostly there and was built up fully but then broke down by a prior owner. The wood cars I think would look great built up but the steel ones, not so great. No rivet detail, they are really plain cars. But an interesting part of OO history. Click on either photo for a better view.

UPDATE 2012: The rebuilt 50' Auto Car may be seen here.
