Another MTH parts donor brought back to life. The Central acquired this from the C&O and will haul locals while 999 handles the express.
LMAO ...I have a couple of engines in for repair/upgrade, I think by the time the owners get them back they'll be thinking they're new as well!
Me too! When I saw this for sale on the OGR forum, it was listed as two bay, which is really what I was looking for. I was a bit surprised when I opened it, but it will go with my Lackawanna 4 bay cars. A purist on a real train forum pointed out that the 7 digit road number is not prototypical; I'll have to change that.I may be biased, but I like the look of that LV hopper.
Does anyone know what the capitol D and F mean on the Burlington box car? I have seen the same DF on a Santa Fe and I have a GM&O box car with those letters as well. I have not seen a reference for them.Continuing Bob’s Burlington spotlight, I purchased a couple CB&Q freight cars and a caboose. The Hi-Cube is an Atlas product, the reefer is a MTH car and the caboose is a Lionel.
