Tom and Patrick each of you have provided us with a couple of fine tail ends.
Very nice tail ends. I especially liked Lee’s “woody”, and Don’s over and under shot on a classic layout. I have a nice set of those classic passenger cars.
beardog49, that looks unique!
Tom and Patrick, realistic shots of the tail ends!
Well I am a day late, but here is a tail end shot of my new ATSF Marx Caboose made between '52-'59
Two older American Flyer tail ends...a American Flyer "champion" train from 1928-1935 but parlor car shown made from '31-'32)
American Flyer enameled passenger train from the late 30's (1939 for the cars)
Well, since its "tail end Tuesday" I guess I can be the tail end and a day late!
I think this is the third or fourth tail end tuesday I have posted while looking out the window seeing everything obliterated
by the smoke from the california wildfires. Don't think we will get a summer this year.
Anyway, here are my tails.
A flyer cast aluminum zephyr, a tinplate zephyr, and another tinplate zephyr that someone has modified to
look like an aluminum zephyr. Good job actually. If you look he drilled out the sides of the added marker
lights so you could see them from front and sides.
Well its somewhat late, but here is my "TE" for today. Its another Marx work caboose but this time its the Western Pacific variant, from 1957.
This picture shows his "long" toolboxes and fancy end railings, these made the work caboose a Marx "deluxe" car at least iaw most collectors.
Well its T.E.T so I guess i need to get my "T" moving and post...so here is a little train, never an official set, that I made up with my "Allstate" tank cars, tender, and caboose. In my little train, the engine which you can't see (its T.E. Tuoesday !) is a #400 but with an "Allstate" slope back tender. The tankers are all Allstate of various levels the last one a simple 4 wheel low end plastic tanker. The caboose is the orange Allstate bay window from 1958-1959, what Marx collectors typically call a "deluxe" car, although Marx never made any such distinction.
Here is a better look at the "tail end" and the caboose.
Hope you all have a great week
That is awesome
