Very good ideas. You can get a feel for how labor intensive Narrow Gauge railroading was. Especially at the interchange with the Standard Gauge operations of the rest of the United States. I am going to have to order some LP and get to painting them.

Need a crew of 4 or more LP to transfer the lumber between the cars - 2 on each car passing boards across the open space. Load visible in door of the NG car and two in door of SG car receiving each board to be stacked. A board "in transit" across the open space, one LP attached the each end of the board would allow scene to be set up as needed by opening the doors and dropping them in. Other people fixed in the two cars.

Thank you Bill and Dean for the kind messages. I’m having way too much fun in retirement working on this railroad. More to come. Dr. Tom
Good looking scene.

Very realistic scene. Don’t you love B&W?

Thanks for the (+) feedback. The box car was a scratch built find from eBay
that needed some work and the raw styrene needed a paint job. It just looked
right so I bought it. Took several months to get on to the layout.
Great shots as always.
Who made the boxcar?
