@Jdevleerjr or anyone... what is the grey car in your photo?  Is it a Ford Model A, or ??  Beautiful, thanks for posting, and I agree a great combo!  I wish the Hershey car show and York were the same weekend, then I would ALWAYS visit Penna in October!!

Creep, coast, and pull.  We're not talking about cold fusion here.

Beautiful roadster and a really nice picture.  I have an affinity for 29 Model A roadsters.  Made sure my son knew how to drive a manual transmission in the 29 roadster.  It’s now his favorite car to drive.   He drives Santa in it every year in the town’s 4th of July parade.

What does the build date of N&W 611 have to do with anything related to those beautiful cars?

Not that the cars aren't beautiful, or that any photos have yet been posted featuring both the J and the Model A, or that 1920s vehicles didn't exist when the J was built in 1950--but the posing of 1920s vehicles with the 1950 J is just a bit incongruous.

A better photo pairing would be the J with a late 1940s/early 1950s vehicle.

I agree with this subject! Have a '29 Huckster l need out of my garage, as I am a Chevy man with an affinity for the many medium price "orphans" of '20's-'30's, and '32-'40 Chevy's.   Have a sllight? interest in trains, too.  Good luck above on restoring the Nash.

??Another one of THOSE!!??  What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!

Perhaps this is a better match. This one would have already been  10 years old when the J was built. It would have looked the same in 1950, since in 2019 it still has the original paint and upholstery.

Still searching for a good scale model of the 40 Mercury in black for my layout.  I found a good match for the 29 Ford.

The Illinois Railway Museum hosts a day every year where vintage car owners can display their cars around the museum: https://www.irm.org/event/vint...za/edate/2019-08-04/

I haven't taken my old Thunderbird there yet. The day always coincides with the weekend of Lollapalooza, which I've been going to for the past 11 years. So if IRM moves the date I might attend.

Ok Steve, done.  My '55 Cameo, now looking for a J to go with it.  Offers?IMG_0080

Is there any better combo than old cars and trains?

No, not really.

2 Rails?  3 Rails?  Doesn't matter, I can't count that high in either case.

I love the smell of fresh-brewed creosote first thing in the morning.

If the government knew how much fun O-gauge railroading was, they'd outlaw it!

Common sense is my second best trait.  Nonsense is my first, of course.
