    Wow. Those cabooses that always show up under the tables at train shows sure do dress up nicely, don't they? Was this an unlettered one, or did you have to grind off some letters?

    No it was a blue NYC, I primmered it and shot the color right to it.

    I have a santa car, in his sliegh on a flat car.

    The caboose on the train is not the same.

    I made the Sanat flat, the tree gondola, the elf car and repainted the North Pole 4-4-0

    My next project is a set of Polar express Alcos for next year.

    Very nice Gil,

    Several years ago, I added mini wreaths to several of my cars

    Sometimes picking up old cars for 3 or 4 bucks at train shows and a little paint can do wonders
