PRR-Parts
N Scale Pennsylvania Railroad Passenger Car Modeling Tips

Here you'll find some visual modeling tips that will help you get to the finished model without some of the trial and error that I experienced. And, most all of the info you need is in one place. These techniques can be used to model most of the P70 class of passenger cars including the PBM70 and even the PB70 (if you want to do some kitbashing).

I trust you'll enjoy modeling this part of the PRR with PRR-Parts.

The PRR arch roof was an attempt by the Pennsy to stop the leaky celestory roof of the older cars and also as part of a passenger car update and rebuilding program. There are variations on height, materials used for the covering, and vent location, to name a few. There are scribing diagrams and vent locating diagrams included with the arch roof kit as well as some additional suggestions on reinstalling the windows.

Prototype photos and equipment diagrams will be your best guides when modeling. Morning Sun Books PRR Color Guides and The Railroad Press "Passenger Equipment of the Pennsylvania Railroad" Volume I are both great resources to use when modeling the Pennsy's passenger fleet. Joining the Pennsylvania Railroad Historical and Technical Society will also yield a wealth of information and friends with common interests.

All of the parts purchased come with instructions and diagrams to aid you in your modeling.

All of the parts are made of resin and will require some trimming of flash and sanding to get a perfect fit. Wash parts with soapy water and paint, then use ACC to install if appropriate. For true accuracy, use prototype photos for parts color and placement.
