Pan Am 40' Hi Cube
Author: SimpleMoMike

My friend Stuart gave me an undecorated Hi Tech kit of a 40 ft Hi cube boxcar and said "see what you can do with this." I started collecting forty footers and Pan Am equipment for two different trains so here was my chance to combine the two tasks. Since I was home bound due to the virus, I decided to make a Pan Am version of my favorite boxcar. As far as I know, they didn't have any of these so I like the uniqueness of my car. I am no boxcar expert and there are a few details left to add on, but I am having fun and it's looking good enough for me. I hope everybody is being safe and thanks for looking.

It is a nice-looking car. As you surmise, though, it's strictly fantasy.

Great looking car. I believe most high cubes have that white band across the top on the ends indicating its a taller car.

Thanks Chris, I completely forgot that white band. Easily correctable and I will get that done next weekend!
