    Default Expression of interest N scale National Steel Car 44’11” BN / BNSF Coil “Cares Car”

    Briggs Models is considering producing the National Steel Car 44’11” BN / BNSF Coil “Cares Car” (series BN 686245-686448) in N scale.

    These cars were specific to ATSF, BN, and BNSF. They can be seen in unit trains but also often seen in ones or twos in manifest trains.

    We worked the numbers and in order to make this project financially viable we would need to sell approximately 175-200 kits. The price will be $30 (Canadian) each and will include a great deal of etched parts and a cover. The modeller will need to supply trucks and couplers.

    As this is, a different process compared to regular 3-D printing (i.e. Shapeways) there is no removal of the waxy material on the subject during the printing process and the quality of the printing is similar to injection modeled plastic kits. The kits and parts come ready to build.
    This is only an expression of interest/order list. No cash up front from anyone. Once the models have been completed and ready for purchase, I will contact you and it will be put it up for sale on the Briggs Models website. You will be able to order directly from the site by using PayPal, credit card, or by mail if desired. http://www.briggsmodels.ca

    If you are interested in having either of these kits produced please email me your contact information and the number of kits you might be interested in which I will pass on to Jeff. As always the proceeds for this car go into the next one. Please feel free to pass this information on to anyone who may be interested or post elsewhere.

    Kind regards,

    I passed this on to Mike Pacillo, he’s not on the board, but I know he needs these cars.
