| DTI 26300 is wending its way towards White River Junction yard.|
Commentary by Peter Mumby.............Photos by George Dutka
wrap up this mini series dealing with acquisitions at the recent
Woodstock show, I'll show you a nicely weathered model of a DTI auto
parts boxcar. It doesn't exactly fit with the era of the other cars
mentioned, but it is a nice model in its own right. It is the work of
Sarnia, Ontario custom detailer, Jim Sloan.
|The arrival of this big car at the WRJ yard will certainly have the
local yardmaster scratching his head. It must have been seriously
misdirected! Probably some pencil pusher up in Michigan asleep at the
switch..................In a later post, maybe we can get George to
share some similar real life tales of the rails! |
|Jim's car nicely complements my collection of 86' DTI auto parts boxcars. Peter Mumby took this photo.|
Not only do I like that DT&I hi-cube and its weathering, but the weathering on that CP van is just right. Too often overdone, but not in this case!ReplyDelete
Might I also mention..London Reclamation Yard?
Hi Eric: Guess I best get working on the Rec Yard photos...GeorgeReplyDelete
