I have bin working on a set of plans for a PS-1 in 1.5 sale that I will be building in the next few mouths.after I build the fist one I thout it would be fun to do a group building of a few more with club members. I think the pullman standerd box car is a good one to copy as it has not been copyd in 1.5  scale laty if at all  it has few rivets which take a lot of time to do and there was a lot of them built for many railroads for a long time with many diffent types of the same base car used. only thing is I dont think any of are loco railroads onwed many or any of this type of box car.I was planing for the ends,doors,and roof secions to be made of a cast reson this will give the car good detail and make it much ezer to build.If you like to be part of the build group check back as I will post photos as I build the fist car and when its done Ill set up the the group hopfuly this will be a fun thing to do,tom downing

Need to talk you into building it in 2.5" or 3.75" scale Big smile  I don't fit well with those little ones as you know.
I am currently in Phoenix. Went to the Maricopa Live Steamers yesterday and rode around for a while. Amazing setup they have out there, almost 13 miles of track. Really nice folks too. But I will be glad to get back to SCLS, there is no place like home.

You only need three tools in life - WD-40, Duct Tape, and a Hammer. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
