    Great photo find Dave!

    I like all of the chalk markings on the sides of the cars in the foreground.

    That's a little detail you hardly ever see modeled.

      I ran across this photo a few years ago and ended up scratch building the two cars in the foreground.

      At first glance they look the same, but there are many differences. Grab Iron, Brake beams, Fascia are just a few of the areas. Both ares were built prior to 1900 when the C&A started listing cars in the ORER

      Attached is a photo of my last test builds prior to building my contest models

        Hi Howard,

        Very nice models. Great job noticing the differences and modeling them accurately.

          Sharp cars, Howard! I really like the weathering too.

            I like that drover caboose lurking in the second row right. Pollution what pollution.
