    Flew to WI to visit family this past week and found a fine hobby shop nearby. I wanted to buy a souvenir N Scale car and have long wanted one of Fox Valley Models' Milwaukee Road horizontal ribside cars. I was thrilled to find these cars from 2012 on the shelf and not being able to decide on one, bought both and some Kato track. :) What could be better than buying these excellent cars at a shop located just 2-1/2 Miles from the former MILW main?

    Picked these up. I now have 70 bethgons and with the addition of these 8 covered hoppers I have enough to keep an industry busy.

    What part of this state were you in. Around GB and Oshkosh I'd never find such.
    Nice catch.

    I know of it. I lived in West Allis for 17 years and then Eagle Springs Lake for 15. Starting in Spring '72.
    There were plenty of places that dealt in train stuff. Including swap meets.

    Bought more Rubber Rocks. Need to add some details so it blends in better with the backdrop.
