Well done, Chuck! Thatís an interesting car and youíre building a beautiful model. Looks like you found a diagram for the brake equipment. It certainly looks plausible.

The LV ran equipment for so long that I donít think itís going to look out of place on your layout. Do you know how long they were on the LV roster?

Hi Mike,

Thanks George and Mike.

Mike, I only know what was included in the drawing, which said it was built in 1911 and basic color information. No other information about the car, which is too bad.

Since the prototype drawing did not include a diagram of the underside, I used other drawings of cars for that era as the basis for the brake system.

I finished painting and decaling the LV ice car. I am trying to decide if I should weather it a little. It just looks so nice the way it is, right now.

Very, very nicely done, Chuck, but yes, I'll vote for putting some miles on the car.

Evaluators like that, too....

Beautiful job Chuck. I think a little weathering wouldn't hurt.

Nice builders photos. How about some after it's been in service?

Thanks, guys. I may keep the car this way for a little while, though.
