Southern Car and Foundry is starting to ship their newest kit for the MKT single sheathed boxcar. The prototype is a classic Howe truss with “Z” exterior posts. The kit can be built as a 95000 series with Camel #32 door hardware or the 96000 series with National hardware. The door tracks are different as are the guides on the lower part of the side.
The kit instructions has a limited amount of information on the National guide installation. I thought that it would help to add information to my blog to aid those who choose this version to build.
The rest of kit is built the same for either of the car series.
I used the new Protocraft coupler and a cut down draft gear to fit in the profile of the center sill.
Hope that the pictures help in the kit assembly.
