Picked up an AMB kit for the NYC 19000 caboose. My first laser cut freight car kit. Forming the grab irons will be a real test of my skills.
Micro Mark has a lot of bending wire jigs, for your information....
This is one example of about 3 they offer. They also sell the Artistic Wire, 20 Ga, Bare Yellow Brass
I just thought I throw that info out there for you and other who kitbash.

From Germany yesterday. Deutsche Bahn Br.628.4 regional railcar service in Bahnland Bayern paint.

These are used all over Germany for local services on branch lines between small towns and villages from one regional station to another.

Top speed is 70MPH, Diesel powered at 650 HP at 2100RPM, seats 112 to 136 depending upon configuration and bicycle accomodation. One is a powered Diesel unit and the other functions as the control car in the opposite direction.

A test to find out if... the corp. bigwigs liked it?
I’m guessing so. By itself it looks great. But (a string of them) between a Conrail locomotive & caboose and it wouldn’t look as good. 76 was around the time they started trying a variety of blue schemes, different size lettering, nose work (CR vs Conrail), etc.
