    I needed these in a hurry, so did the pair in four (long) evenings.
    They're done in evergreen styrene, with brass handrails and grabs. Kadee wheelsets in tichy caboose truck frames. Had to wait an extra day to let the paint dry before lettering, but they ran sunday morning at the train show, in a mainline way freight of about forty cars.

    WOW!!
    That is some really fine workmanship, my friend!
    I can only hope that someday I'll be able to attain half that much skill!
    And you always back up your model trains with that drop-dead gorgeous scenery...
    You've nearly rendered me speechless!
    (& my wife will tell you, that, in itself, is quite an accomplishment! :D )

    Sumpter, What can I say? You are in a class by yourself!!

    Among other things, I'm looking at your ladders! You're driving me droolingly demented! But me being a massochist, I want to see more, and more and more. You're a whizz sir.
