Won't see these freight cars again

I was looking through some old photos of past layouts and came across these guys. Current advertising laws probably prevents these bilboard freight cars from being produced again.

I don't believe I ever saw them when they were new. Certainly not on a real railroad.

Did you ever think you would see the day when marijuana was approved for use and tobacco was so heavily frowned upon?

Sad part, there is still not an instant test to detect those driving stoned like the breathalyzer for those driving drunk.

Exactly. We raised our kids carefully to keep them off drugs while they grew up. All the DARE programs, hockey, soccer, art classes, dance classes, parental guidance etc, all for naught.

Now my state governor is pushing pot to be legalized for taxation purposes. Even the government can’t make money in an honest way....
