I wonder what the return policy is on those? Hopefully better and easier then Bachmann.

Painted for BTCO... it all makes sense.
Have you met Baltimore drivers?
It was just being truly authentic.

PCC = 1
Tractor-trailer = 0

 :D

Seriously though, that was a sad evening. The Baltimore car was hands-down the most popular paint scheme of the 7 cars we've completed so far. Only the Pacific Electric paint scheme (due to complete sometime in April) is more popular.

The best news is that the car was on its way back to the barn, so there were no passengers aboard.
