This is an American Model Builders 391 HO Pickle Car Conversion Kit For Athearn or Tichy 40' Flatcar. While the Pickle Car Conversion Kit has been designed to compliment our popular HO scale Pickle Works Kit No. 725, the completed car makes for an interesting member of any freight consist too from the steam era through the early 1960s. In fact, photographic evidence proves a few of the privately owned, similar appearing, steel constructed super structure wood vat cars were still being used into the 1970s.

Designed to fit a 40 foot flatcar, we've found the Athearn and Tichy models, in particular, work the best for the conversion. The Athearn car will require the removal of the existing brake stand, but the included laser-cut deck and brake gear will work equally well on both brands of flatcar. Although most of the open vat cars we researched displayed smooth side sills, we left the molded-in stake pockets in place on our sample Athearn based car pictured above while the Tichy flatcar kit offers the option to leave the stake pockets off. Custom decals, produced by Rail Graphics, are included as well and provide numbers for five different pickle cars under the ownership of G. R. Dill & Sons (G.R.D.X.).
