    Oh,

    I was hoping it'd be flat cars!

    Here's a glimpse of a flatcar with a full load of lumber. It look like this guy's gonna need it.

    Those are real 8/32 screws with the heads missing on an Athearn RTR flatcar.

    Why do the tractors need to be weathered, aren't they literally brand new?? I agree about the flatcar though!

    Here's a pair of flatcars. Both are Athearn 50' cars, with bulkheads from Walthers GSC flatcars. The plastic decks have been removed, and replaced with scratchbuilt wooden ones. The lumber load on the second car is built up from basswood strips.
