Here is one I made out of spare parts but it still has not found a home on the layout.

 

Show me something you made that never made it on to the layout.

I could answer this a hundred different ways. I built this boxcar from the scrap box last year. Since I don't have a layout... nothing has made it there.

Show me another forty foot boxcar.

Before the Great War Countries were preparing for it.

In 1909  The British Government ordered Railway companies to build Ambulance Trains.   Military Manouvres took place in preparation of an invasion from a 'Country in the East'.

It is early  1914.    Here are some Nursing Staff  on a practice  at Leeds Sovereign Street Station

 

 

Next  - A Wildcard of your choice.

I have never seen grain storage bins like these in real life, but they had the Cargill logo on them, so I hope they work. This scene is on the Atlanta Interlocking Model Raiolroaders train show modular layout.

Show me any type of storage bin, bunker, or housing.

A box car loaded with crates of bags of lime being unloaded at a warehouse.

The shipper learned sometime ago to load the bags of lime on skids then box them in a crate so he has no damaged bags at the destination.

Please show us more box cars being loaded or unloaded.
