That’s really cool, Tony!

At Christmas, 1964, my cousin and I road the train from Memphis TN- we were there going to school in the Navy- to Harrisburg PA. We had to change trains in Effingham IL to head east to PA. Because of all of the military folks on leave, the PRR had pulled cars out of storage. The one we got on looked an awful lot like yours! The seats didn’t lean back- they flipped facing forward or aft. The pull down shades had patent sates of 1893. There wasn’t any heat in the car. The engine broke down somewhere around Fort Wayne. Took a long time to get home that year!

Super nice job Tony!!!!
I love building the train cars, the caboose was my first try at one and of course once I built it I just had to build some more.
Again great work and can’t wait to see your other cars.

Very impressive GR8 (can’t call you slack)... Sorry to digress from the car, but those bloody tracks look bloody good!

Topped off with the loco it’s building into a decent train collection.

FAIW, this is what you’re up for if you go through the full T&J and Gatto collection,

You’ve just redeemed the slack tag… Where’s the blog about the tracks?
