C&S Caboose

Here is a caboose scatchbuilt by Tom Mix using styrene for the basic body and brass for the trucks and details. Notice the interesting contrast of the shiny marker lamps and the brick red carbody. It looks real. Beautiful work!

a scatch built pair of pedestal trucks. These trucks are done in brass

of the shiny marker lamps and the brick red carbody. It looks real. Beautiful

Milwaukee Road Boxcar

Here is a scratchbuilt boxcar done by Tom Mix. It is a Milwaukee Road prototype built by the Bettendorf Car Company. The model was built using styrene with individual nut and bolt details on the "Z" braces.

UTLX 6000 gallon Tank Car

Tom converted a Grandt Line On3 kit for a UTLX 6000 gallon tank car kit into standard gauge. The prototype for the narrow gauge car actually started out in life as a standard gauge car.

The conversion was simple. It entailed a new set of trucks and some modifications to the bolsters and coupler pockets. The trucks that Tom used are scracthbuilt from brass and are fully sprung.
