Product Information

The Walthers Cornerstone Railcar Restoration and Charter kit is based on a car shop that specializes in rebuilding passenger cars for excursion service. The average passenger car worked pretty hard over the course of its lifetime. Being started and stopped repeatedly, along with constant exposure to weather, and the normal wear and tear of everyday use all took a toll, despite the durable steel construction. As railroads began slashing passenger service, they quickly cut back on repairs, simply retiring cars that were no longer in good shape.
 
But as historic preservation caught on in the 1950s, private individuals began buying up older cars with an eye towards saving them for future generations. Many were determined to get them back up and running, a daunting task that typically required removing, rebuilding, and replacing virtually every piece - heavy, dirty work that made having a well-equipped shop a must. Over time, what started out as a labor of love evolved into a business, as the shops began taking on restoration and rebuilding projects for others. To help pay the bills and keep their classic cars rolling, many began running charter services, providing cars for fantrips, business excursions and more. Railcar Restoration and Charter is one such business.
 
Perfect for adding to your diesel-era layout, this kit features typical brick construction, a railcar door, a baseplate designed to accept common rail sizes (rail not included), decal signs and passenger car decals. As shown Railcar Restoration and Charter measures: 8-3/16 x 5-1/4 x 3-9/16" 20.8 x 13.3 x 9cm. Railcar Restoration and Charter is one of a wide variety of Cornerstone N Scale railroad buildings.
