Larry, another great update. I really like your gondolas. The one with all the duckboards is a very appropriate load. Are the duckboards scratchbuilt or castings?
Eitherway, very nice detail.
I like that you are including reference photos as well. I always enjoy the history side of it too.
And the damaged car is a good save of a makers second.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Rob,
Thank you. I'm trying to post a reference picture for as many builds as possible going forward. The Duckboards were designed and printed in 3d by Elwood Blues when he was working close to me two years ago, he printed around 250 - 300 for me, plus thousands of shells.

Thanks Mike.

I have been driving myself nuts trying to design decals by finding the correct fonts. I have been looking at as many pictures as I can.

Interesting that some wagons have no markings at all.
