      I thought they had to be Amtrak for you to want to play with them?

      I just don't think Roosters should play with trains that belong to somebody else..

      Other than a tap of the space bar, What is the difference between a horse car and a horsecar?

      It's like stick and tissue, but with styrene.

      Must have taken a month to do those pins along the roofing edges.

      Nice to see some balsa wood getting some love.

      I'm glad to have had the opportunity to see your car in person at York.  Quite unique and nicely done.  Great construction techniques.

      Again this is a Horse Car, therefore no need for the:

        Hide the Eggs Party

         nor the

        Mutton Union

      to get involved

      After a raucous family reunion at the park there were a dozen homebound horse cars of hoarse Carrs.

      And to get back to, and finish the Stream liner conversions the following pics have been added to the article

      This finishes the Baggage/Dorm and the sleeper. And the Article is found here https://www.largescalecentral.com/articles/179/passenger-car-conversions

      I will be adding the finished Horse car pics and then will move on to a Solarium car
