Built for the EBT by Billmore & Smalls (date unknown) and equipped with link and pin couplers. Our version has been “upgraded” to use Kadee 714 couplers.
These hopper cars were black with white lettering. To complete the model, paint and decal to your liking.
This model was designed to use the following for completion:
- Kadee #713 or #714 couplers
- 3’6″ Arch Bar Trucks
- 12 – 18″ Grab Irons
- 4 – Bottom Mount Stirrup Steps
- Brake Wheel Shaft
- Truss Rods
Due to the fact that 3d printing is a relatively new and in many ways experimental manufacturing technology and the fact that many of the models I manufacture push the limits on what is able to be manufactured, not all models can be successfully printed every time. Every effort is made to avoid any issues during the design phase, however, from time to time we do have unforeseen issues during the manufacturing process. We (Shapeways and I) appreciate your patience when issues do occur.
