Throwback Thursday - MMA #1
I know that the "experts" will tell you that for a model railroad to be a more convincing representation of the prototype, your modelling efforts should predominantly feature mostly the "plain vanilla" freight car models. But every once in a while you encounter one of those cars that just urges you to make an exception to this rule - after all, some models can simply occupy your display case! MMA #1, to my mind, is just such a car, a standout due to its unique car number, its bright colour scheme, and its power to evoke BAR boxcars from days gone by.
