Cars are ready to tour
#1
Here they are:    

The HO 40' is an Athearn, road number 100119. The HO 50' is a MDC, road number 100115. the two N 40' cars are Bachmann, road numbers 100100, 100101.
The HO cars have metal wheelsets, and Kadee #5 couplers
The N cars have truck mounted Rapido couplers.
I have to build shipping containers for the cars so they can go on tour.....in relative safety.....and at the end of the tour, be auctioned off.
Sign up for the tour, there are other cars being prepared for the event. Be ready for the end of tour Auction. The party is just beginning! Cheers Cheers

Lead me not into temptation.....I can find it myself!

Wait a minute, I want to be on the tour! I guess I have to clean off my standard gauge ROW first, otherwise the car would have no where to run!

Now that the cars are ready for the tours, we are checking to see if anyone else wants to add their name to the list. We want the list to be as complete as possible before we start the cars on tour. The more the merrier they always say.

Just so you know, we are going to include a manifest with each car to show the route it takes as it makes its way from layout to layout. Or get on the list even if you have a diorama, have to go to a friend's layout, or even if you just want to take a picture of it on your computer desk, it doesn't matter. Just get in the spirit of things and get your name on either the N scale, HO scale or both lists, guaranteed, it will be fun. :lol:

Once the tour is over, we will be auctioning off these cars, as-is and with the manifest along with it.

Not sure how I missed this, but that HO scale 40' box must have a load destined for the freight house at Pinto on the Ocali Creek Railway...

...in other words, if it ain't too late, SIGN ME UP!!
