Bryan, I am interested in buying any or all of the decks you have left. I was too late and did not get in on the original order. If not this project, maybe the next.....

Dan,

Unfortunately they are all accounted for, and all but two orders have been shipped out.  We can run more in the future if the demand warrants it, but this was successful enough that we can explore additional projects down the road.

I posted this on weekend photo fun but think it should be here also.
Maybe as we all get a chance to put them to use we should show them off here.
I body mounted 905 Z scale couplers on mine and what a difference! One other
thing I did was to put a piece of .030 X .100 styrene down the middle to glue to.

Thanks again Bryan!!!! and I am very pleased with this little project!!

My progress so far on the first car, with distressed floorboards.  Longer description of work done to date in the 4/24 Weekend Update thread.  Still have a PRR car to do.
