Ed: "Show me another observation car, please.

A very old photo (2004-5) of Observation Car #51, part of my NYC streamlined consist. It is an Athearn BB kit with interior lighting, a lighted drum head and incorrect rear lighting. But I like it.

 

More observation cars, please.

This was an Athearn observation car, but I decided to shorten it somewhat, and it's now a "business car" for the road's executives...
