      Here's a shot of my NG Hanrahan reefer. Need to get decals, trucks, and couplers on it.

      Found the couplers, and the trucks just arrived. Now where's the #*&$* cable for the decal printer?

      Phil Dippell (philsnarrowgauge.com) did a one-off kit for me for it. I had to tell him where to cut the double doors, and what hardware to include (and not include). I had to add my own end platforms, and Ill do a different roof walk than what he supplied (to match my other rolling stock).

      Exceptionally nice Bob! The Hanrahan has always been a favorite of mine. I built one in HO in Colorado Midland livery, especially colorful with the Indian herald.

      What road name is yours going to be?

      Bob i'm not sure that will fit through my tunnel curve section, can you send it over so I can check for clearances?

      I'll send it back if it doesn't fit!
