Ken L

Thanks for bumping the thread. My 132 is on the siding and requesting the dispatcher for permission to proceed. 

Number 131 ... Please report for duty.

My ugly crane is used for cleaning up spills at the coke oven. Until this evening, it was not numbered. Now, its wet decals say "131'.

Cheers, The Bear.

Cheers, The Bear.

Yes, it's a freelanced weed sprayer for my also-freelanced railroad, the Elora Gorge & Eastern.  It's scratchbuilt, mostly from styrene, although the car's deck was done in stripwood.  The sprayer arms are positionable, as can be seen in the second photo.  There's also a #142, given to a friend back in the '70s, when the car was built.

Cheers, The Bear.
