    This is the mining co's little home0built "crummy", that serves as caboose, passenger car, freight car, & has, on occasion, even hauled lavestock!:eek: :D

    This one's made from a flatcar, a 'bobber' caboodr, handrails off an old diesel shell, & MT trucks & couplers.

    p.s. I posted a picture of this one a few months back, but I've since added some more details & lettering to it...

    Fantastic, Charlie, and I say what you haul in your crummy behind closed doors is your own business! Filler her up with sheep! Another fine "Shack on a Raft" :)

    Boy Charlie, it may look "crummy" :)but it's a work of art. :D It take a lot of imagination and talent and you prove you've got both each time you post your work....

    Great weathering and making it look well used Charlie. Fun to have one or two of those on my layout.
