    SP&S #42 IMG_2586.JPG SW-9 returning to Spokane with wood products. I just finished the three cars, a SP&S Woodchip boxcar, a Milw. 'ribside' Veneer car and SP&S 730 a NP original sold to the SP&S and served to 1962...

    Terrific scene, Marty! I always like seeing how others model girder bridges crossing multiple tracks, since I have a similar track arrangement on my layout.

    That's great! I like the veneer car... I have four of them I bought from you, maybe I should post a photo, too, (y).

    Still working on getting a picture of a Milwaukee Road local with veneer cars. I just tried to get a fifth veneer car, too, but someone else was apparently more desperate to get it, as they went sky-high with their bid, :cool:.

    Yes! I love this. The SP&S loco is great and I am so glad to see that sort of veneer car modeled. I am not sure I've ever seen something like that RTR with load.

    I kind of thought it was just a one-off situation. How many veneer cars does one need, though?

    Caught the same train later in the day after making a couple pick-ups:

    Well, I got this from someone on another forum a couple months ago, with the intention of taking some proper SP&S local photos.

    [​IMG]

    Just tried to get a Marty Coil SP&S caboose to go with it but apparently the deck was stacked against me on eBay.
