All I have for now! LOLIMG_20210919_123949

Mike, Menards $20.00 freight cars, can't go too wrong with that! I too have a similar WarBonnet boxcar from Menards, different road number though. Also in the photo below with the WarBonnet is a Chief boxcar with graffiti. I have a bushel of Lionel metal sprung freight trucks, so I replaced the Menards trucks with the Lionel on these two units.

Happy Santa Fe Sunday!

FOR SANTA FE SUNDAY:  The Lionel 2065 Santa Fe style Hudson pulling Santa Fe streamlined passenger cars.  I received the Hudson with a freight set for Christmas when I was 4 years old.  I purchased the passenger cars with allowance and grass cutting money when I was in 6th grade.   IMG_4445IMG_4483

Lionel Santa Fe FA 2 I received for Christmas when I was in 5th grade.  The set of diesels came as an AA set with one powered unit and the other a dummy.  This engine was never a great puller, however at the time all that mattered to me was that it looked cool with the warbonnet scheme ... and that it could handle those 3 passenger cars in fast fashion!  LOL!
