    The prototype is 3D printed. We are planning offering this in resin but it won’t have interior

    Nice looking car. Did not Virginia and Truckee buy one or two of these from SP?

    Where did SP operate #475 after the rebuild? I did not know that it was originally a Hell On Texas Contractors car. How late did HOTC sub-lettering persist?

    What machine and orientation did you print this on that made the roof so short?

    By San Bruno Branch, I should assume that the writer means the old SP Main on the Peninsula? Interesting that the car ran there, as I was a regular customer of the SP there. I rode the Schoolbus on Rails.

    As the article stated that SP retired in at Merced, I would assume that it operated in the Sierra Nevada, as well?

    Thank you for the link.

    We printed it on a Stratasys J750, but this was our first test print, Obviously there are some tweaks that need to happen before we offer it for sale.
