    FYI, I have just posted on eBay a somewhat rare brass model of an ACF kit-built 2-bay, 70-ton LO Frisco covered hopper, painted black, with white lettering and white "Frisco Lines" coonskin on each side. Four hatches on each side of the top of the car. Good detail - hand rails, ladders, hatches, chassis detail, etc. Car has plastic Bettendorf type trucks I added, along with Kadee metal rib-back wheels, Kadee couplers, Cal-Scale brake line hoses, and Kadee brake wheel as added details. Car is one-owner (me), was painted by me, decaled by me, using, and with help from Joe Pennington, decals he had made for this car, SLSF 83631. Car has full side panels, no triangular openings in the side panels. Original box and foam included. If interested in this rare model, not available in plastic (Eastern Car Works/E&B Valley made limited quantities many years back), see the eBay posting with pics, from meteor910, if you are interested in this rare brass model. For more specifics, let me know or have questions.
    Thanks.

    ps - If you are interested, let me know quickly. Once somebody bids on it via eBay, I am obligated to sell the model to him/her, unless the buyer is subsequently outbid. FYI, there is a gang of "watchers" already, but no bidders.

    Effective 1/15/2020, FYI, from this point on all frisco.org bids for the above ACF brass Frisco 2-bay covered hopper car must be submitted via eBay. An eBay bid has been posted.
