 We are coming upon the Orange meet on July 10th where we will be distributing the Accurail 4300 series undecorated single sheathed outside braced box car. Each JRD member can receive one free car which retails for $19.95 each. The only rule is that you build the car and bring it to the be displayed at the appropriate meeting. If you don’t build the car you will need to return the car. How far you paint the car, decal or weather it is up to you. All that is asked is that you assemble it.

 There was a question about the modeling theme which is a flat car with a load. The car can have staked temporary sides but no ends. If it has ends it is now a gondola which is a different theme.
