A few looks at a CSXT 60 foot waffle sided boxcar found along South Industrial Blvd. on my shortline.

Nice work Jim. Who makes the chain link fencing shown in the first shot? It looks really authentic the way you installed it.

Thank you.  That's the Walthers Chain Link kit...which I don't think is all that great.  The fence posts are alright, but the wire pieces that came in the kit for the top and bottom chords was curved, not straight, which made assembly a good deal more difficult than it needed to be. And the tulle that you get for the actual chain link comes as a large piece folded up in the box so you have to cut it to the height of the fence and also contend with wrinkles from the folds.  In my case, it kind of worked out because I wanted the fence to look pretty beaten up anyway.

Alkem Scale Models makes a nice chain link fence kit, which I have, but I've not used it yet.

I bought Walthers chain link fence too and it has bends/folds too - not helpful.  Yours looks pretty good to me!

At least unless the weather gets hot.
