    Here's a rare Vinegar tank car, lettered for SBIX of Oakland, Ca. Enjoy to REAL wood look! (one may also realize that the entire car was once aluminium-colored, before mother nature stepped in.)

    That's a cool car! I don't think I've ever seen one of those. Nice weathering too.

    I thought that maybe with all the stuff in the bear pit (train room ) there was nothing
    else that I absolutely had to have.

    Thanks, Miles. :D :D

    That's a nice car Miles, and a sweet weathering job. I saw an article years ago but for the life of me I can't remember either the make of the model nor the mag it was in. It was a review of a similar car, if not the same one. The reviewer stated that the kit was a bear to build, as many parts did not fit correctly. Did you build this one?
