    HI All

    I just joined after I found the site in a search. I like the format.
    I model 1900, not too many people model this era in HO. Here is my favorite car. On my road, the car with UP 119 have been restored and visiting. I also need to put the couplers on. Not sure if I want the link & pin or Janney coupler.

    I have the photographer with the old style camera that needs to be painted.

    just way too cool for words. Awesome! Terrific! Unique, come to mind. As a photographer, (of sorts,) I really really enjoy seeing it!

    Very simply, I love the 1920 Billboard Reefers, Just imagine a long string of these colorful Reefers going through town. One big rolling Billboard

    Generally, the boxcar because it can be readily converted to a multitude of other uses, although the flatcar would be neck and neck for the same reason.
