Getting inside Intermountain 40ft boxcars
« on: March 15, 2017, 07:45:23 am »
Hi
I've a boxcar with the as-supplied internal weight come loose. These car models don't have sliding doors - I'm pondering the best way to get into the thing to fix the weight back down.

Anyone done this and succeeded or failed?

Thanks

Donald

Does the roof come off?

Or body unclip from chassis?

I'm sure all of this happens - but not in an obvious way and I'm afraid to bust up a work of art!

Totally understandable. Hopefully someone who is familiar with these models can help!  :thumbsup:

I've had suggestion that the roof pops off using a fingernail under the corner overhang.
I'll have a shot at that later.

Oh, and it worked. Couple of blobs of glue and some locating pins. I'll stick a picture or two up later to remind myself for the future!
