    Need to use up a station model and a passenger car? Well here is a building you can model.

    This used to be the CN station in St. Boniface before it was part of Winnipeg. And yes the passenger car does have track under it.

    If you look close, there's a blue boxcar end on the other side of the building.

    Why did nobody tell me about that before I went to Winnipeg?
    The car ended its railway life as CN rules instruction car 15022, before that was CNR sleeper Trenton, and started as CNor 12-1 sleeper #9647. Built by CC&F in 1915 (according to the Trackside Guide).

    Those are great examples. I was thinking about doing something similar to this just a couple of days ago. Thanks for providing me with some more ideas.

    Was it really good, or were you blinded by the fact that you were sitting in a real train car?

    Been there. No really, I had a Big Mac and large fries, sitting in one of those cars.
