      WSRR Tie & Rail Car

      Next car to join the Brown Dog Timber & Lumber Company roster is a tie and rail car.  This is the 3rd installment in our work train series.  The first two were the work caboose (Build Log) and a flatcar (Build Log).  This build started with the construction of a flatcar more or less identical to the one we just completed.  The tie deck was then added.  The photos below show the tie deck temporarily mounted just to get a feel of the overall look.  I still need to add 2 more posts on the far side and the ends to the tie deck.  Once that is done, I'll remove the deck and everything will get a coat of paint and weathering.  Then we will add the underside details and trucks.

       

       

      Thanks for following along.

      Thanks, Pete, and yes, the end beams were 3D printed along with the trucks, bolsters, stake pockets and queen posts.

      Looks great Dan. Is this all in 1:20.3? I thought that is what you had said. Your printing skills are coming along nicely
