Etched BethGon kit coming soon
- I completed my first design for a photo-etched nickel-silver BethGon
coal porter. In the photo section under Eric's Photos, I have posted
a couple of renderings of the assembled CAD model. Details will
include etched interior braces, etched sides, and cast resin bottom
(tubs, centerbeam, and bolsters).
I'm submitting the design for quotes with professional photo etching
companies, and should be able to roll out the first run of 150 units
by the end of this month.
I am also working on enclosed autoracks, PS 4750 covered hoppers, 3-
Bay ACF Centerflows, as well as press forming-tool for cylindical
I'm also playing with the idea of a SD70ACe shell (Thanks to MR for
the wonderful drawings!). But this is on the extreme rear back-
burner as of right now.
I need to update my website to show all the good new things coming
down the pipe!
