    Here is a pair of old timers I had stashed away. They were pulled by my Casey Jones steamer.

    Nice! I have both of those along with a baggage car and a shorter passenger without the raised roof. Pulled by a 4-6-0 steamer. Just no layout yet. And mine are in dark brown.

    Gondola with my first attempt at making a junk load. The trees in the background are made from air conditioner filters and skew sticks.

    This B & O hopper is from the late 1960's. It has a cast iron frame and the trucks are cast iron also. I once tried to put intermountain metal wheels on this car and is shorted out my track. The result, I had to put the plastic wheels back on it - bummer. I also have a white hopper like this one somewhere with a Holly road (I think) name. This is an old picture so I don't remember is the body is cast iron also.

    A pair of special forces cars that came with the small army colored switcher I posted in Locomotive of the day a few days ago. I picked up that set at the local Salvation Army outlet store a few years ago. I have the caboose somewhere.
