Do Some Learnin'!



In Modern Freight Cars from Kalmbach, noted modeler and former Model Railroader Magazine staffer Jeff Wilson provides an overview of freight cars from the 1960s through today.

This is an essential guide for model railroaders who model the 1960s through today, as well as railfans and freight train enthusiasts.

The book features more than 200 photos and covers various types of cars, including boxcars, hoppers, and gondolas, and how they evolved, as well as new car types, including intermodal cars and 89-foot auto tracks.
