For a second, I thought that was the caboose I got from you.

The Bowser cabooses are nice but they do ride high - an easy fix by switching the couplers to #2001/2004 and taking .020" or so off the bolsters.

.........ride height - meh ! That's a beautiful model.......
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Thanks Bryan. However if I do that then Matt will be proven correct and I can't let that happen

Nice ride height.
What's funny is the TRW banner that was at the top of the page when I first looked at the picture was the "where ride height matters " one.  :trollface:

Overall, it looks good, but, yeah, in the words of one of the VW forums I use to troll......

Bill, I have my wife to make sure I'm never correct.  Please, give me one iota of hope.

It looks like an N5C, but it's missing the omnipresent rusted patches at the bottom of the side sheets :)

Bill,

You can keep on hanging out here as long as you keep posting photos of your amazing passenger cars and other Milwaukee Road projects!  :D
This turn towards the Pennsy is a bit troubling, but at least it has porthole windows.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Very nice!
Looks like it's riding a bit high, but it could just be me.
I also had no idea that the Reid brothers still had a layout.

I second Dave's motion. Approved, indeed.

Damn, I've always wanted to run on the Reid Brothers layout since it's based on where I grew up in PA.
