Cool, thanks for the heads up.. the Maxon car look good.. details are a little bulky on the ballast cars.. but not any worse than I could do.

I need to put in a shapeways order someday.. Lou, your CR/NS Mow trailers will be on my order...

I agree...   In playing  with them - the MOW vehicles have too narrow a gauge to fit on n-scale track.  I replaced the axles with Green Max #43 wheel sets (that funky Japanese MOW kit that has been around forever.)

On my Camp Cars, I'm planning to order some too - and mate them to NSK PRR flatcars. 

I need to do the PUMAS Rec Trailer and the kitchen trailer too....

Shame 'bout the wheels , I too need to get me some . Saw them a couple weeks ago looking for logging stuff . The Bachmann 4-4-0 lead truck is another source for small wheels though they look like un- frabriced hats for Odd Job in s scale .

Nice MOW yellow, but no logos or lettering?
BTW, do I see a Hostess covered hopper in the background? Nice!

That's why I'm holding off on a shapeways order.. hoping for the other versions of the camp cars.

I tried to order one of mine last night - but there is some sort of rule violation (news to me!)

So I will be opening the file, fixing the issue (near one end door window) and adding 2-3 new window variations.

Question - I am thinking of  adding a partial floor to defend against warpage.  Thoughts???

Cool!!!  Whatever works on the partial floor, I'm going to be applying to Atlas flat cars so I will have to fabricate the end platforms.

The prototype seems to have some sort of support structure under the trailer, with the origional flat car floor removed.  Maybe use that as the anti warp structure?

Looking good Lou! Do you plan to put in windows, if so, how?

Thanks...  No I think the plan is to add some details, paint the under carriage and design some decals.

One thought is to park the stuff on a siding and light them (flashing yellow), but another is to put them on flatcars along with some
of my camp trailers and make a work train enroute to a work site.
