  • Rescued C-and-S reefer and Victor Gold mining Gondola

    Picked up these two on ebay a long time back.

    The refer was missing parts and half built. I needed to make doors and all the grab irons. I still need to add a few more. It also needs stirup steps added and some break gear. I got a new airbrush on the weekend so did some painting (all floquil)

    Bottom is Grimy Black, Roof and ends are Tuscan Red and sides reefer yellow. Decals were from the kit but i will add my own report marks for Moss Creek Lumber Co. eventually.

    Next up is a Labelle victor gold mining gondola. The floor in this kit had the end beams in the wrong place and the bolsters cut in the wrong place. I made a new floor from my own strip wood. Fixed it all up and made a gondola as best i could. I figured its for my Moss Creek Road so it could be a bit of a bash up. No Decals yet but i will eventually add some. Its been nice to work on some rolling stock lately.
