Hi Ian,

Are these kits or scratchbuilt? Look highly detailed. The box car, is the siding like clapboard?

The one behind (or ahead) of the gondola - that is an interesting design. For livestock?

they are called louvered Vans here in Australia and yes each panel is like clapboard

yes that is a livestock Van used to carry 12 beasts 24ft long

These are resin kits but may as well be scratch built -very careful work and cleaning is required - each of the slats on the Livestock van had to be cleaned of large amount of flash
