Looks good Gary!
QHS is a small copper hauling railroad, they run approximately 20 miles of track, and lease out a number of their cars due to the fact that its easier then a dedicated fleet for processed copper hauling. When the railroad began, and for the first 15 years (until 1980) the cards were sometimes known to be labeled "return empty to home road".
Being such a small line, would a Q&HS boxcar find its way down to Texas?
Yes sir! There's one that left Maryland a few weeks back. They can be found anywhere copper was needed.
So it was bringing a boxcar load of coiled copper tubing to the appliance manufacturer?
Gary, I don't have one with that number. :thumb: Looking forward to seeing it!
I used to work on a 3 mile shortline here in Stockton who has a fleet of over 200 cars and they can regularly be found in North East Canada and down in Mexico. Shortline cars get around my friend!
Some really great stuff guys!!
What ever you choose. QHS's primary business is copper.
Hey Ralph and Jbaako,
I haven't forgotten about ya, just real busy on getting the layout ready for my openhouse. I'll eventually get the boxcars done!
I finally got a non-decal sheen image of one of the cars! Here's a 40 foot box car.
That's a heck of a layout you have there Ralph. I'm sorry, I don't mean to Hi-jack the thread, but I've always admired that layout and it's big city feel, not very easy to pull off on a model railroad. You did though very nicely.
I have to agree, Ralph: you've done a nice job of capturing that big city grittiness. The boxcar looks good, too! :thumb::thumb:
