      I always liked these modern looking baggage cars.  Great job rooster ! Fun to follow along and watch your progress .

      When weather improves in the Mechanicsburg area, it would be nice to see a video of the Amtrak inventory run on your line.  However, at the end of April, there may be a "Grey Line" Tour coming through that area, for personal viewing.

      What's wrong with watching Amtrash run thru the snow, blowing snow out away from the train as it highballs down the line???

      Nothing wrong with it Dad! However I don't have an AEM7 nor am I building one. 

       

       

       

      Ric will only take spy pictures then turn them over to Clarke Vader for review which ain't happening.  I will move the base before allowing such !

       

       

       

      Besides I don't recall "inviting Ric here" in the first place !

      Calling it done for now as I only needed an operational quality Viewliner baggage car to go "Roundy Round" with the rest of my fleet. I can always go back and add details/fix things later. There are plenty of mistakes but I don't care because at the 10' rule I think it will look pretty good!

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Gutter or downspout ?

      Looks enough like the ones seen twice a day on Southwest Chief at La Plata, Missouri, on Virtual Railfan's YouTube that I expect most folks will just accept it as it is.
