Susie-Q #517 Joins The Fleet

Greetings Blog Followers,

As promised we have adjusted the layout time warp from Can Openers to Cigar Bands and Lightning Stripes. The newest car to join the fleet in revenue service is a NYSW (Susie-Q) 40' box car #517 from  MDC / Roundhouse. The model was bought as new old stock. The model was washed and cleaned with weights wire brushed and spray painted black. It was assembled according to the directions with Intermountain wheel sets and Kadee #4s added. The model has been fitted with a home made track cleaning set up and is now in service. 

NYSW #517 coupled up to Steve N.'s MILW rib sided 40' boxcar. Cars were part of the same purchase order.
