This week's car is an old brass model of some sort. I looked a long time at fixing it up by adding steps etc and decided it wasn't worth the effort. Rather than painting it I just slapped some decals on it for the home road.

Question: Did I really need 3 more of these?
Answer: Evidently so. They are train cars.
From Athearn- surely one of my all-time favorites and in three styles I did not already have. The PRR from a Greenberg Show and the other two from Zientek's in Chicago. That Eilif does a pretty good job of finding good stuff in his hometown to send abroad.
Actually I did have to take an extra two or three minutes to decide if this one should come home or not. I don't have too many L&Ns, but I had not seen this paint job in any show or store, so of course it had to roll through the Fog Werks

John: I guess I will never understand the romantic nostalgia that is felt about Woodstock. I grew up in that era. Woodstock seemed more like a Drunken Roman Orgy than a music festival. I guess I was a Red Neck then too.

JNXT 7707: I second that. I do like some of the music but the event itself was a disaster. It has improved over the years though, like a fine hippie wine

pokemonprime: "seemed more like a Drunken Roman Orgy" yep I think that's why some people went.

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Are there no fences strong enough or tall enough to contain these birds of destruction?

mph: Nothing that I can find. I may have to try something drastic and build a mote filled with Fogite - that will stop anything, right?

frankenstein: I've got a big flyswatter

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Speaking of flyswatters... I must have an underground bee nest by by window wells. I have bees and wasps flying around my head when I'm under the fluorescent shop lights. Masy be time for more DDT or Fogite mist. Fortunately the electric flyswatter works.

rbturner: I didn't understand Mark's flamingo comment above but it is beginning to make sense now.
