      Nice work, Chester. How did you build the grain bed?

        Thanks, Jeff, the grain bed is made of Evergreen boxcar siding with square rod in the corners. The angle brackets are from a Tichy handcar kit.

                    Thanks for the info, Chester. Did you base it on a photograph?

                      Jeff, yes... and no. I always find something in a prototype that looks doable in scale. Then I try to make a "plausible" replica. This inspired the build.

                        Chester, what no spark plug wires.

                        I wouldn’t follow too close behind, you might get splinters on your windshield.
