  • Found in the bottom drawer....with the socks...

    Totally forgot I had this car until it jumped out of the bottom drawer of the storage drawer....





    And, one that I vaguely remembered -- that car body is a lot older than me.......

      Nice looking cars, Martin. I hope that was a clean sock drawer.

        Great models, Martin.

        It looks like the socks protected all the little details nicely.

          I looked in my sock drawer and only found socks.

          Nice find.

            I spend a lot of time making sure that my socks are neatly aligned magnetically North,

            I need to go look and see what's under the spats next. It never ceases to amaze me how these cars wander about into odd locations. I kep hoping that they are nesting and breeding, but I never find any N or HO scale cars in the house,

              Martin-

              Is car 147 unusual? I see it is an express/postal car, but I would not have guessed that from the window and door configuration on the sides.

                Yes, and I am at a loss to explain what its origins are as well as prototype, if any. It's a kit car from many years ago; some sort of odd plasti ccomposite material. I used know what the manufacturer was for it; they had several cars in thei product line and you used to be able to find them periodically at swap meets and on eBay, although I've not seen any for several years now. I took it and the others above, except for that express reefer, to the most recent O Scale swap meet and all came home with me....[:-cry]

                I'm sort of narowing my focus on passenger cars and these are all a tad long,

                I'll post pictures of those that I managed to sell.....

                  The last of the sock drawer cars as these 2 departed for a new home...
