Since there really isn't a railcar thread.. Anyhow, by special , it could mean a car that you built, a car that was bought years ago by your father, or any car that has special meaning or a back story. This pickle car is a mix of kits and scratch.. sort of. The truss rod flatcar is a Fine N Scale car kit combined with an American Model Builder pickle rack. Special because in N Scale they are pretty rare and I built this car.
