Living the dream and happily modeling my STRATTON AND GILLETTE Railroad in HO scale. The SGRR is a freelanced Class A railroad as it would have appeared on Tuesday, August 3rd, 1954, in my personal fantasy world of plausible nonsense.

And a fine bridge at that Shane.  Nice job on the switchgrass.
 
 
I'm not worthy, as there is no finished or painted bridges on the layout yet.  I'd better get busy this WinterWhistling
 
 
Here's some fine crafted freight cars, mocked up on bridge #6.

There is only one in the Fleet Of Nonsense, and it is green.

I am not sure if combination door boxcars were a reality in 1954, so one seems like enough.

Show me another green boxcar.
