Actually, a very nice plastic TT boxcar kit was introduced several years 
ago by Gold Coast Models in Or.  The line has now been sold to a German 
company, but the undec kit is still available.   Go to   and scroll down.

Decals might be cobbled together from some of the older Walthers sets 
which were often in the wrong size.

Take care
