    Drawings of Box-Express 465-469 (as published in FMIG Newsletter 25 - provided by Mike Johnson).

    I have an Athearn 3-pack of these cars, for which I hope to eventually have something for the "models" section.

    Original Numbers, as best as I can make out:

    If I'm misreading the aforementioned info, please let me know.

    FYI. The Hobbydashery Inc in Springfield. MO offered custom painted MDC 40' box cars painted/lettered as 466 and 468 probably 10 - 15 years ago. Not nearly as sharp graphics as the Athearn. I still have one in the box.

    Taken during the winter of 1970 at Grandview, Mo, 469 is headed south on tr 59. It looks like the steam lines and signal lines have been removed.

    Looking at the photo of #467 on page 124 of “Frisco in Color,” it is clearly sporting a wooden roof walk. I can’t seem to locate anything indicating that these were delivered with wooden roofwalks. Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

    I am finally getting around to trying to spruce up my Athearn 3-pack a bit: replacement doors, roof walks, steam, signal and train line and new trucks. Not sure if I want to replace side ladders and grabs or not.

    Beat regards,
