I am toying with the idea of using Fastrack for my post move  (to Hendersonville, NC ) layout. I see that the standard operating track operates my postwar classic milk car and cattle car. Is there a track, or modification that will allow me to attach to the milk platform, or cattle corral? any help will be appreciated!

Lou, I used the Fastrack Operating track with no problem.  Just remove the side strip of ballast. It's designed to come off.  I also bent the base of the milk platform to bake a snug fit. It's shown on the pics below.  Read the instructions for the operating track before you install it. Hope this helps.

This video demonstrates that it works!  The operation of the milk car starts at the 23 min. mark

Complegtely irrelevant and unrelated comment: I was married in Hendersonville, in 1969.  Haven't been back since (Wife and I live in PA).

Maybe I can qualify this as a railroad-related remark by noting that we saw a lot of GG1s in action on the way back.
