I think you should bring a couple of these cars to the next Tinkerbell Society meeting, to be held during the 60th Anniversary Meet at Waushakum. Then Don R. can make a test flight himself.

Steve, as someone else posts around here...

My computer beat me at Solitare...
It wasn't so good at kick boxing

Dad is mostly computer less now, unless he is over at his friends house. She gets them. Dad, I think, was overwhelmed in about 1959 when they got the Manchester Computer to show X's and O's as a game !. (on punch card). Anything beyond that...well...

On the boxcar, they look good. I have no idea what next summer will bring, but it may involve a road trip, as I am retiring, and dad is contemplating moving from Pickering. I think the boxcars would look good behind Caribou, even though it is Robin Hood that can be run as a scenic engine. (I have the radio kit here for it, as it was another thing I didn't give dad, in the forlorn hope of getting Robin Hood back in a reasonable amount of time).

It was chess. :)

We have enough youth, how about a fountain of Smart. My computer beat me at chess, but not kickboxing
It is not getting caught in the rain, its learning to dance in it. People saying good morning, should have to prove it.

I was able to finish off one more box car before the cold weather set in. the large lettering was from the local print shop while the smaller lettering was rub on stuff from the hobby shop.

Hey Don,
I bet Larry never pulled a TH&B box car in his train. When I went to MLS, (Montreal Live Steamers), I brought along 4 sets of box car kits for the guys to work on. Hopefully there will be a big train to pull at the meet next year.

Will a Lehigh Valley box car be on the list?

No TH&B Steve. There are still D&H,B&O,NYC and a few other fallen flag lettered cars drifting around now and then.As for the Smith bridge,it's just shy of a mile long....even in 3/4"scale, that's a buttload of boxcars! Are there tank cars in your future? I rarely leave the Worcester yard these days on the second trick switcher.
Cheers Chum, Larry
