    This weeks main project was to create an abandoned baggage car. My inspiration was such a car in Leesville.

    This was the inspiration:

    I started with a donated Rivarossi SP baggage car:

    and reworked it into this:

    Here's a photo of it on the layout:

    One of the locomotive of the Mt. Hood Oregon tourist railroad that also actually does some switching work during the trip at a large fruit packing warehouse! I took this picture during a lunch break from a bus trip to Mt. Hood from Portland during my recent vacation.

    That was a joke my friend Dave (for whom the diner is named) made the next morning after hosting a bunch of us in his yard for overnight camping. :)
    He laughed when he saw the sign on the diner.

    My newest project.
    At first, I was gonna make this a express car for CDOT commuter train that uses the same rail line as the CNE.

    Then, I started thinking. Why would a commuter line today, need an express car? Since I had already painted and decaled it, What could I use it for?

    We went down the Farmers Co-op Grain Elevator and caught the B&O through train heading east (as the B&O calls traveling from Washington to New York).
