OK, I couldn't resist the pun.. Anyway, here is the Osage Valley's tie and rail car. It was inspired by a prototype photo in the latest issue of TimberTimes. I plan to build 5 more. It's constructed on a scratchbuilt frame that I sent to Rusty Stumps for molding and casting in white metal. Once that was done, it was a simple, quick car to build. I have decided it needs a brake wheel and undercarriage truss rods, though, so I've got a little more to do on it.
