Illinois Central

HO, N, S and O Scale Passenger Car Sides.  Our sides are done with a white styrene outer side and a crystal clear plastic inner side that are to be glued together.  The clear inner side is also used for window glazing.  All sides are undecorated and require a core kit (roof, floor, ends) to make a car shell, or the use of a donor car, unless otherwise indicated.  The diagrams shown are three or four colors:  white lines are the outlines of the sides and doors (if the kit comes with separate doors), green lines are generally window openings, red and blue lines are details cut into the sides.  Descriptions of the cars are of the prototype and usually tell the builder, number of cars made, the original owning railroad, and disposition of the cars.  These descriptions are taken from the "Pullman-Standard Library" and the "Passenger Car Library" by RPC Publications, and are used with permission.

See the drop-down list for pricing on the scales available.

To view a full-frame diagram of the sides, open the product page by clicking the blue product number/name.  When the product page opens, click the magnifying glass.  To close the diagram window, the X is located at the bottom right of the frame.
