I Like the All-Nation car kits - had a bunch of them, but sold most off. I couldn't part with a couple favorites plus several of the bright colored beer reefers.
That SP&S box needs a newer running board and a brake wheel?

If you find any "wheels" at a reasonable price - let me know please.
The ones I have seen on FleBay must be made out of Gold!

I wonder if Athearn has any - they made a bunch of cheap plastic boxcars back in the 70's.

Rebuilding a few more of these All Nation Boxcars. Fixed where the truck mounts and added some Scale City Design ladders

Lee - I cannot locate the ladders that you show - can you provide a link?
I looked all over the site - maybe I just overlooked them?

I'll look again -- Have you ever used the Delrin Athearn trucks on the Lionel Track?
I just wonder how they would perform. When I was in the O club in Albuquerque we used to run 40-50 car freights with those trucks. They were smooth runners.

No I haven’t but if there close to 2rail wheel sets you might have some trouble. I’ve tried 2rail wheel set on Lionel fastrack sometimes it works but most of the time it’s a nightmare

I have a few of those brake wheels, if you're still interested. They seem to be two different sizes. one is about 7/16" in diameter, the others are plastic, about 9/16.
