      Super-detailed Aristo Bulkhead REA flat

      I picked this up at ECLSTS and decided it really doesn't fit with my 1:20 EBT rolling stock.  It was beautifully detailed and painted by Jim's Model Trains in Pittsburgh (I think.)  $75 plus shipping.

      You notice that the flat car has brake wheels on both ends...remove one, as two on the car is NOT prototypical.  Keep the second as a spare, as they are easily broken.

          Current, realistic price, except if a dedicated collector wants it, would be around $30...I just sold several of them...

      Current, realistic price,

      Thank you Fred.  I doubt you'd get the super-detailed load and paint job on an off-the-shelf model!  Someone put in a lot of work on that car.

       

      And it is RR independent, as REA cars ran on many roads.  [Disclosure: I am fully aware that REA never had any bulkhead flats!]

          As I tell my kids (and myself, especially!) when a good thing takes a wrong turn, "Let's just start over."
