Long list in hand, but next up might be an A-frame side door block car that is going to be a challenge as I'll try to make the doors open. Got to find parts for a few others on the list.

Another nice one, Martin.

A little business advice. Your railroad ought to look at building some revenue producing cars.

I've actually got way too many of those, George! There are 4 tank cars on other bench; 3 are just waiting for paint and decals; 4th might get wrapped up this week with a little luck.

But, revenue cars are nowhere near as much fun to build

Another winner, Martin. Both an interesting prototype and well-built model.

Nicely done, Martin!

As to the Business stuff, there are always federal subsidies....

I don't understand... you just tell them your railroad needs money and you voted for them , and they send truckloads of it to you. Isn't that how it works?
