    Now the empty car has made its way over to the foundry at the R&L Wrecking Co.
    R&L uses scrap metal to produce a variety of products, & 101976 will be picking up a load of drop-forged hardware...

    The car is actually bringing parts to repair the main assembly line at MAT Trucks.Oh and enough spare parts to make sure they can fix it in a hurry if it breaks down again,

    By the way I allready know about the Kentucky bourbon,but will leave at least one case in the car.:D
