Walthers HO 60’ NSC 5150s
Author: OnTheSiding

Which of the Walthers 5150s are correct?  I have read that ICMX, CRDX, and IC are pretty solid prototype matches, while some of the others are 5300s (such as CP).  What about WFRX and FURX?  I welcome your comments on these cars as they are nice.  I already have some of the CP and CP/SOO, and they are nicely made and have plastic walkways...which will not warp.  Etched metal is nice, but it tends to get wavy over time.  Anyway, for about $22  each my CP examples are quite good, and they are also sturdy and well suited to handling.  On some of my "better" covered hoppers, I have had stirrups come off easily and other parts get loose over time.  These Walthers cars are a nice all-around product, ready for weathering...
