Box Car Aris'n

EBT 107 is nearing completion. Spending a little time here and there. Nice to have a project that can be done that way, as I do not have large blocks of time for modeling these days. All that's needed now is trucks, some air-brake piping and off to the paintshop! Trucks are in the mail so to speak. I'll update progress as we go....

EBT Boxcar Progress

Working a little each night on the boxcar. Slow as she goes but handrail details aren't that exciting.
 Evidently, the EBT had one of these with a steel underframe. Looking for some Vulcan trucks to go under it. Looks like B.T.S has some and so does CB&T Shops. Might give'em a try.

Deer Creek Mixed

The Deer Creek Mixed had a busy day hauling some box cars out to the extract plant today. The run included picking up a load at Collins. Loads back to Laurel Jct. included a broken donkey engine, loaded extract cars and a loaded tank full of extract. Business is good despite the downturn in the lumber industry.

The shops have been working on an EBT boxcar, getting it ready for the Deer Creek. Slow but steady progress.
