Giraffes and barrels are on the siding as New York Central milk trans dominate the main lines....

I'm now envisioning Giraffe Milk ("From Contented Gi-raffes") cars...

I'm more interested in the rail car sounds like those on the vl reefer. Ya know, flange squeal,brake squeal coupler slack, banging etc etc.

If you are interested in the REA and Milk Cars these booklets maybe something to find.

In the beginning of the REA (Railway Express Agency) booklet you will learn.  That years before there was a "REA" there was in fact the "American Express Railway Co."    And before I bought Lionel's car pictured below verified paint and lettering.  So Lionel did a great job here.

The text goes on "Original lettering scheme as handed down from American Railway Express."  "The body color was a deep green commonly called Pullman Green."  "Lettering was gold and mayhave been (at various times) gold leaf, bronze (metallic) gold paint or imitation paint (buff)."

The only thing Lionel's cars scale about 43/44-feet long.  Where in fact the interiors were that long with exteriors being 53/54-feet long.

Now the "Railway Milk Cars" booklet is one of four volumes which regrettably  did pick up at time.  But this one has pictures of various Borden milk cars and Borden milk tank cars.

Here is a link of my Lionel CCII Niagara pulling a wide variety of Lionel Milk cars at the NJ HiRailers yesterday. All I need is the METCA Milks cars that are on order to round the consist out.

BTW, the Niagara was upgraded with the new Lionel brass gears, new drive train, Cruise-M and super smoke by Alex. Ran for 6 hrs straight.

Here is the video.

In similar vain to the Vision reefers, I imagine there'll be a foreman scolding a worker "Don't spill the milk!"

And the worker replying "No use crying over it!"

But in all seriousness, I'm looking forward to these cars more than the Niagara itself.

Milk is king when one runs a milk unit train:

Special thanks to Banjoflyer for advising me on how to increase the volume of the chuffing, whistle and bell sounds of the LC+ Steamer, which mysteriously became weak earlier this evening.

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.
