Bill, this new flatcar with the lumber load, stacks up quite well, in comparison to your other rolling stock modifications going on here.

Bill,

That tall load of lumber would not be very poplar if it's train ran too fast around a curve and the load were to larch to one side and spill all over someone's yard. The woman of the house, Violet, asks her husband what will they do with all those boards, and he answers "Vi, burn 'em".

Not exactly a riveting story.

Mike

Mike, before dragging out some old chestnut to try to reply to your story, I had to ask 'Are these the best oaks we can come up with? Do we need to spruce up our act?' But pining away gets nowhere so at the risk of making an ash of myself, I guess we simply do it fir the the befuddled looks on our elders' faces.

Here's a peek at one more flat car. This is another for NEB&W operating sessions. It is a Bowser kit assembled with no modifications except to weather the deck a bit because this car will primarily run empty.
