    You are out railfanning on the Reading Lackawanna Kensington & Trenton and you catch a local freight rolling past the machine shop. It is lead by an IHC Reading Mikado.

    The locomotive is followed by a CNJ steel boxcar and a Rutland wood boxcar.

    And lastly comes a LNE steel boxcar and a Reading caboose.

    All the boxcars and reefers are custom painted cars made from Athearn blue box undecorated kits. The Reading caboose was made by Mantua.

    I can see that string of excellent looking freight, with a D&H caboose on one end, and a D&H Challenger on the lead.
    If you're ever out to Chicago, bring that with you. I know a club layout where it can run.

    The work looks great Tom. Also looks like you have already had some serious snowfall early this year, at least early for my part of the world!
