All 5 interiors



Below are custom interiors for a MDC / Roundhouse G&D 50' cars printed 05/05/16 on a MakerBot. These are for the full sized MDC Overton cars and there are more.

The rest of this page was done for my custom cars made from cutting and splicing the short cars and are the wrong width for 50 foot overtons. I have a set of interiors for the off the shelf Overton cars.

Close-up of the interiors


The base printed on the interiors were thicker than I planned. I used my milling machine to take .020" off and fit the interior into the combine.

These interiors include seating, heating, and water closet facilities. The walls and doors are detailed and there are heat shields around and under the stoves. These interiors were designed to fit the 3 Overton cars I built from plans I drew up after reading Al Turner's article in the October 1980 Model Railroader. While the cars appeared in the 50th anniversary contests of MR and also Du Page Division popular vote favorite train contests they have not been evaluated for AP. I am in the process of adding more details to the cars both inside and out.
