Has anyone weighed each of the AMS freight cars? Weights do not appear in the Accucraft specifications on line. My grandson needs the information for a sicience project. He needs the weights of the Box, Reefer, Stock, Flat, Tank, Gondola, short plastic Caboose and the long brass Caboose. He would appreciate any help available.

My brother has all of the cars mentioned except the reefer and long brass caboose, we'll see if we can figure out a way to weigh them!

I can tell you the short brass caboose is 11 lbs.

Someone sent me all the weights vie an email. Thanks for all that wanted to help. Here they are:
Short plastic caboose - 3# 8oz
Long Brass Caboose - 6# 4oz
Box - 3# 15oz
Reefer - 4# 1/2oz
Gondola - 2# 15oz
Stock - 3# 5oz
Flat - 2# 6oz

This is close enough for the science project, so I don't need any more weights or corrections.
