    When I finished the logging caboose, Shamus replied," next one to make is the bobber (4wheel job)".
    I had a Mantua frame, and a Rivarossi car body buried in the bottom of a box full of stuff. I moved the cupola, and re-did the sides as single sheathed, or outside braced.

    When I get some decals, I'll letter, and weather it. Here's the end view.

    Nice piece of work, Pete!
    I really like the outside bracing...that's something you don't see too often on that type of model.
    And, those handrails...what can I say?
    :cool: :cool: :cool:

    On30 !?! I have, so far, avoided that temptation, because scratchbuilding is about the only way to have rolling stock.
