Here are a couple!

Built from a Walther's kit and I used some decals I had in the scrap box to finish it. These caboose's were delivered in the brown scheme before they were repainted in the Century Green scheme.

Bowser N5c Caboose Kit, where I added the Trainphone Antenna, painted with Scalcoat II PRR Red and Black Paints and lettered with Champ Decals.

More Caboose's Please!

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!

Thanks, Mike!

That would make a pretty neat "Urban Legend" that an entire car load of classic cars somehow got "lost-in-the-shuffle" and had been passed from railroad-to-railroad for the last fifty years or so. Kind of like those stories of the "barn-finds" of the '53 Corvettes you always hear about!

I recall that Penn-Central "lost" entire car loads back in the '70s but they usually showed up—sometimes a thousand miles from their intended destinations— eventually.

How about 2 freight trains, a manifest on the siding, and a trash train moving past the station, as our friend, Mr. Portly, discusses the day with a friend.

It's a fuzzy pic, sorry.

So, how about pics, of everybodies friend, Mr. Portly!

Here's the old boy, sunning his tummy, when he was Division Superintendent for the New York Central on his "bidness" car tacked onto the rear of NY-6. He always pronounced it "Bidness"!

Any more rotund gentlemen? Mr. Portly or otherwise?
