      MOW shed

      Next up is a retired boxcar turned into a MOW shed.  I took one of my partially completed EBT boxcar kits, and am adding a stone foundation (which needs final paint and weathering).  I'll heavily weather the boxcar, and have some steps or a ramp or something, plus a bunch of clutter.

      Steps, maybe a lean to shed with some oil drums, a "Keep Out" sign and the obligatory stray (shop) cat.

      The light in the tunnel might not be an engine , but a light in the caboose of my own train on my Roundy Round Rail Road !    My empire is complete...I think...

      Alternately, I could have this sit along the track, and have a pair or rails going to it, as a speeder shed.  That might be fun.

      It needs an "Alley Rabbit" sitting on the roof.

      Made mine using left over caboose body that I had stolen the cupola off of for my drover caboose, sat it on a LGB bridge pier and made it a dual purpose office cause there were 2 doors 1 at each end and a paper clip for a radio antenna

      All of these good ideas, of course, are causing me to kick myself for passing at a chance to dicker on damaged and / or incomplete freight cars I saw at a second hand shop last year... Live and learn!
