This half contains boxes for letter mail and smaller parcel.
The shelves are used for larger packages and baggage.
Overall this is a very simple build, but it was still fun to design. This design can be expanded upon and made into a large boxcar with multiple sliding doors (which I may do later). I built this after my Christmas Coaches (which will be uploaded soon), so getting the height just right to be "in scale" was the "most difficult" part. By "most difficult" I mean not really.

this must be the most interesting piece you did for me, as I still have nt decided how I ll manage by cargo mail wagon on the passenger train, I can t wait until you cram it packed, lol!
Simple yet effective designs are always my favorite, and those are what I tend to stick to. Most of the time...

excellent work there you did an amazing job of getting the cars in scale with big blair
Well, she IS a big girl, so the rolling stock needed to be large as well. Which helped since I am able to shove more crap in there (when I upload the other three cars you will be able to see that better). But thank you. I am still working on Mammoth's tender, I am having some issues with the Vanderbilt design and making it just right. Mammoth is no ordinary locomotive, so a standard box tender will simply not do!

I like the color-scheme! I think the doors are my favorite part.
Thank you! The cars that I designed for my Christmas Train are based on the Amtrak Superliner cars, but I went with older model doors to give it a "classic" look since they are pulled by a steam locomotive. I wanted that nice blend of modern and classic.
