Loading TOFC car 801

Dean Smith

It's another busy day on the Vida Division as seven-year-old Jim Hobbs and his father, Clarence, Superintendent of the ET&WNC Railroad, supervise the loading of a trailer onto TOFC car 801.  Over seventy years later, Jim would share his memories of loading the trailers in an article for Every Time With No Complaint magazine using his G scale models.  No actual photos have ever surfaced, so if it weren't for the memories of a very special man, this fascinating process would have been lost to history.
