One Evening Project

This installment might have made a great "One Evening Project" for MR years ago. In all honesty, it didn't take much longer. I've been gradually filling in my engine house area with typical piles of (correct) random stuff (re: Chap 4 "Racks"). I've taken many slides at engine houses over the years of this type but, the pictures I got in Milford on the CACV last week were perfect for my prototype inspiration.

Everything you see modeled was made from materials I had on on hand: The bin, pallet and brake shoes were built up, of course. The coupler knuckles are old Varney; still oversize but, they look like they belong given the size of Kadee's.

Hope you all enjoy.
