Some of you may have missed this latest project during the last operating session at Dividing Creek.
Long-time model railroaders may remember the “Dollar Car” series in Model Railroader from years ago.
I recently came across an article from the October 1968, yes, that’s 1968, issue of MR.
In the article, the late Jack Work describes how he scratch-builds a rail and tie car modeled after one on the Canadian National.
Well, I’ve had this article for at least since 1968, always intending, someday, to build one for myself. I finally did, except, unlike Jack Work, I started with a Tichy 40′ flat car kit and scratch built the cabin and the rest of the car from styrene. The tie load is removable. Enjoy!!
