    I've managed to pick up some more oldie projects since February. This flatcar actually came from the train show in February. I'm not sure who made it. There are some melted spots on the deck that I may either cover with a false deck or scratchbuilt low end sides and load.

    Here is a LL P2K E8. I got this at the C&O Historical Society for $20.00. It was shelf worn with a deformed shell caused by heat. I'm still looking for a replacement shell.

    Mantua General. I got this on e-bay a couple of months ago. I plan to rebuild it to a free lance configuration.

    Varney F3. This also came from e-bay, and looks to have had the pulley drive.

    Nice projects.
    If you find another shell for the E8 and are interested in selling the old shell for parts, let me know. I have one that I am rebuilding that is missing some of the detail parts.
