Recently sold a MTH Premier version of that car.  Regret it now!

Here is the Atlas O version of the car.  Someday I'll get around to weathering it.

Here are a couple more Atlas cars.

A SMR Trains box car kit, my first such and fun to build.  This is the learning curve for my next car, SIRT 7, one of at least two cars left over from construction of the Staten Island Rail Road in 1860, and retained for baggage and mail:

Beer Train

Just got this one off daBay. Old Athearn, maybe All-Nation, 50ft kit. Previous owner had put some nice Lionel die-cast trucks on it (too far outboard - 3-minute re-drill and move mod) and it has a good paint job and lettering.

I've said it before, I like these old metal kits because they look...metal, like the real thing. Thin cross-section material. Not as hyper-detailed as the new stuff (which is beautiful), but I don't care.

Often inexpensive, too - especially if already in the 3RO configuration, as this one was. And, if assembled correctly, pretty robust.

Essentially all the underbody detail that I typically need.

Unless you've had a wreck...

In a moving train most of that minute detail is lost to the eye. Nice car.
