    Life-Like Boxcar. This is a “toy” boxcar I picked up at a show. I have use it to experiment on with different weathering and upgrades.

    Nice trees on the background, nice camera position, and the weathering is subtle and not overdone ( realistic in 1 word )

    Great runpast, Tom, and a great spot for "time shifting", as there are no era specific details in the setting. :thumb: :thumb:
