    My good friend Jim Marksberry sent me some of his old HO equipment a while back, & I was looking thriough some of it a couple of weeks ago...Jim had sent me three of these little 20' woodchip hoppers, & I thought these might make an interesting starting point for some gravel cars to go with my little On30 porter that I lettered for the KY Rock & Asphalt Co.
    Here's the HO car that Jim sent...

    I removed all the HO detail, made a new deck, & bracing from styrene, added new trucks & wheels, & came up with a 13' cravel car...I made the removable gravel load from real gravel...

    I've lettered it KRA #26

    Still need to add a brake wheel, but the first one is about done!
