Alaska 40' Hi Cube (fantasy alert)
Author: joliver2k

Yes I know this is a fantasy. It is built from Tangent body, frame, parts etc. Testors dark blue paint, Microscale decals. Weathered with washes, oil paint, chalk, colored pencils.
I like short cars, my layout is not all that big. To repeat, yes I know it is a fantasy. I just wanted an Alaska boxcar after a vacation there.

Regards,
Jeff Oliver

Maybe fantasy, but looks just fine.

Don't laugh, they do have them up there. It's not winter all year.

Agreed!  I know so little of the ARR that had you not mentioned it, I wouldn't have known a thing.

If you want a prototypical mode of an ARR boxcar, ExactRail used and may again make a model of one.

ARR also used to have some ex-MP 60' boxcars but I don't recall ever seeing models of those boxcars.
