    I think it's the same car I built in HOn30, though mine's a bit simplified:

    Again, nice work!

    Yup! That looks like it! Thanks!

    • Roof walk on and more painting done - home stretch on this car....

          Long list in hand, but next up might be an A-frame side door block car that is going to be a challenge as I'll try to make the doors open. Got to find parts for a few others on the list.

          • This one is done and I'll get into the next soon.

            • Another nice one, Martin.

              A little business advice. Your railroad ought to look at building some revenue producing cars.

                I've actually got way too many of those, George! There are 4 tank cars on other bench; 3 are just waiting for paint and decals; 4th might get wrapped up this week with a little luck.

                But, revenue cars are nowhere near as much fun to build

                • Another winner, Martin. Both an interesting prototype and well-built model.

                        I don't understand... you just tell them your railroad needs money and you voted for them , and they send truckloads of it to you. Isn't that how it works?

                          Might have better luck getting money from Warren Buffett. He likes railroads
