    The Catskill & Ramapo is a NY State narrow gauge empire of my own creation. It stretches from Sloatsburg, NY along the Ramapo River near the nothern NJ border to Albany, NY where it interchanges with its wholly owned narrow gauge Adirondak & St. Lawrence which extends right up to the Canadian border. My layout is designed for 1947 or thereabouts.

    Very nice car, Russ. I suppose we can expect a few more posts with the weathering?

    Good looking car, Russ. Good timing - wrapping it up before the move.

    Here's a final (almost) shot of the completed (almost) car. The other side has some decal problems that will require blasting them off, re-painting, and then re-lettering that part of the car (again). :erm: That will have to wait until after we move and get settled in the Spring. The trucks are Bettendorfs that I have for another car but will get Andrews for it when I get it really, REALLY completed! id="Comic Sans MS">id="navy">

    The trucks that I want to get are available in Sn3, the same Andrews trucks that were used on the Prototype.

    I like your choice of the steel ladder, Russ. Makes a nice change over the ubiquitous grabirons.

    It looks like you're having fun, Russ. This will be interesting to follow.

    Looking forward to the build, Russ.

    BTW, I attended a great Clinic on the history of the EBT while at the MER Convention the past few days.
