Disturbing The Track Rats...
Author: wheel_slip

Hopefully the M.O.W. crew that inhabit the camp cars are not resting as D&RGW SD40T-2 5358 passes by their camp site...
James Evans of Columbus, Ohio owns the models and layout. I just took the pictures.

Window AC unit in the former Army troop sleeper is a nice touch.

Was that former troop sleeper a Walthers car repainted?

They came out about a year or so before the Walthers models. They were flat kits that required a bit of skill to assemble.

Kind of like the Eel River "beer" RBL's - I built one of those from flat parts and it come out fine.
