Road Name:(undecorated)
Product Type:Craftsman Kit
These are models of 50-ton steel cars. The kit consists of the basic wood parts you build into a box. The modeler then applies the rivet-impressed aluminum sides and diecast metal ends and doors. The doors can be made to open. Cast metal parts are included, and directions are given to completely detail the brakes. The ladders are stamped brass and look good enough to use with a little filing. The trucks included are of Midgage's own make of a sprung Bettendorf type with brass wheels. The wheels were set to the old NMRA gauge, so they do need to be re-gauged to the NASG's standard-gauge. No decals came with this kit. Ed used wire to replace the cast-on door handles. He also used the door stops from the Des Plaines Hobbies/SSA PRR X29 kit. The model was painted with Duplicolor red primer, and Krylon Clear. The MC/NYC decals came from
leftover parts of the F&C gondola and several other car kits. Ed used Kadee S #808 couplers. Photos #2 and #3 show the unpainted model.

Model Introduced:1979
Product Type:Ready-to-Run
In 1979 the boxes were a bit too narrow which resulted in some of the "nibs" on the sides of the door latches to break off. Starting in 1980, Lionel increased the box width by 3/16" to eliminate this problem. In today's market a #9700 without broken "nibs" carries a price that is approximately 70% higher.

Road Name:Baltimore & Ohio (B&O)
Prototype Class:M-26a
Product Type:Craftsman Kit
The prototype for this car was similar to the Pennsylvania Railroad's X29 (and the S Scale America model released in 2013). However, these kits used paper printed sides and roofs, with a printed running board. The two ends were printed in box-car-red and had white lettering. The corrugated doors were printed as well and were part of the side image. There was also an Ajax brake wheel that you could cut out and paste on one of the ends. This is all to be folded and placed upon a wood box they tell you how to make from the sizes of wood they may have supplied in the kit.

Product Type:Craftsman Kit
50-ton box car kit composed of resin castings for all of the parts. No trucks or couplers were provided. C-D-S dry transfers were used to give a 1950s style of lettering. This model was modified by removing the incorrect fishbelly center sill to look more like the Duryea Cushion underframe these used. And some other details were upgraded. S-Helper Service trucks and Kadee S #802 couplers were used.
