    Shipping is now underway for our first special run car. Once they arrive, we would love to see pictures on your layout, or anyplace that you can take a photo. So, show us your special run cars!

    Here is Mine :)


    On the shelf above my desk. It will probably stay where it is...as I think it will become lost among all my other freight cars on the layout. It doesnt say Trainboard on it so it pretty much looks like any other freight car in Lucky Penny Yard :-(

    I hope you didn't open it, and let all the factory air out? :)

    I forgot to warn you that the box had Maine air in it so people should stand back when they open it.

    Maine Air is delicious!
    Spent a few days in Boothbay Harbor last summer.

    You wouldn't like it where I live. Up here it smells like cigarettes and Allen's Coffee Brandy.

    I received my Special Run car today. It looks great!

    I posted these photos in the "Announcement" thread as well.

    You know the one thing I noticed in all these pictures?
    What an ugly truck color...

    To each his own - I happen to like it. Those butt-ugly red trucks are the ones that drive me up a wall! ;)

    You two are saying the same thing, and I agree. The truck color is bad. Not terribly difficult to change, but I would have preferred black.

    I like everything else, however.

    Around here you can start on clam flats, a blueberry field or wreath factory.

    I am also looking forward to seeing pictures of the cars in a train somewhere interesting on your layouts. :)

    I don't mind the truck color. I paint them a deep grunge color anyway. This is going to be neat to compare mine with one I made from decals a long time ago.

    Changing the color of your trucks will just make car worth more to who ever gets all my stuff when my life has ended many years from now I hope.

    I'd prefer a Maine lobster instead of the air!;)
