    Watching the expert work crew lower the trucks onto the wheel sets was a real treat! Their experience really showed through by how easy they made it look!

    This is where I came in! Finally, after a long month of coordination, that lightening fast assembly crew presented me with a finished and painted TrainBoard Exchange gondola, road number 3401! :D I cant wait to put this baby to work!! :D :D

    After finishing a job well done, I had to go down and shake hands with the builder. :D
