There is a photo up on the Atlas board on Shapeways NS/CR Camp Car.  Looks good.  Ed, is this the same type the CR group just obtained?

Yep, one and the same.

I had actually been talking about wanting some of these a good bit lately. I had thought of doing exactly what Lou is, but I'm glad someone else has done the work for me.

I figure, a couple of these, the MTL sleepers from the NSC, and a few flats with Lou's MOW stuff, and some gons (including the G26s), and I have a pretty respectable CR MOW train.

I've got a couple of Lou's MOW products at home waiting for me to work on.  Looking forward to posting here about them.  May have to add a camp car or two as well.

I'm curious about the mow pieces, since I'd want some of them to go along with the camp cars.

they seem to be really nice - though the crane arms tend to snap off at the pivot point if they aren't packed right.  ONce I get one painted, I'll post pics.

I've actually put a front end up to the Shapeways site, so that if I figure out a way to do this less expensively or better, there won't be a big transition issue...
