Note the roof in the 3rd photo. That is a Viking roof.

When the Vikings were in Greenland, they wanted freight car roofs named after them.   

A unique corrugated 1930's steel roof for freight cars, produced by the Chicago-Hutchins Corp. (a merger of Hutchins and Chicago-Cleveland). There were five ribs on each panel, the Hutchins roof times five. (The Hutchins roof had one stiffening rib per panel.)  Panels with grooves in them were thought to be stronger and could be easily installed.

Now you know...…..the rest of the story, Good DAY!

Steve, Excellent !! I am always amazed at your skills. Really great weathering, looks so real. Thanks for your inspirational work.

Tom
