I'm building a Branchline 50' AAR double door boxcar this weekend and for some reason I don't have the steel nuts supplied with the kit to properly weight the car -- and I don't have ready access to a postal scale right now.
Can someone tell me the weight needed to bring the car up to NMRA standard (4.5 oz.), or the weight of the car without weights, or the weight of the nuts used in the Branchline kit? I'm just looking for something that can get me moving in the right direction.
Thanks, Mark Mathu Whitefish Bay, Wis.
