      7/8 scale boxcab

      A friend gave me an Aristocraft Eggliner. Perfect bashing fodder. All I needed was the frame and motor block.

      That works! And I really like the red headlight casing.

      Dam,  That looks good.

      That little bit larger scale really lets the detail show!

      Here she is in the build stage with a 7/8 box car I built. I wanted to see how the size compared.

      No part of me would see "eggliner" and think "box cab."  I am as impressed by the creativity as I am by the craftsmanship.

      Nice job.  Ozark has a similar 1:20.3 boxcab which I have been drooling over . .

      Another great project, John....  

       

      Love the "funkiness" of the set....

      That's what I have thought about building one of the Eggliners into! Nice job!

      Great job. 7/8's is so cool. I dare not even consider it.

      I only have one through truss bridge to replace on the layout. The other one has 1/2" of clearance on all sides. Lucked out there. 

      The replacement is a deck bridge that I'm moving from an abandoned section of the layout. 

      Now my buildings are all out of scale..................

      Great looking critters!

      When I upscaled to 7/8th I did have two bridges to change, but basically kept most of my 1:20 buildings in the background.  I have slowly built new 7/8th stations and stuff which reside next to the track.  Of course you can just run your 7/8th stuff and not worry about the scale of the buildings.
