Re: Throwback Thursday: MDC "Old Timer" Freight Cars II

Friends,

I suppose we all had one or two of these. They were interesting looking cars. Of course that huge underframe, needed to give at least a modest hope the car would stay on the track, was a big detraction. I made a new narrow underframe for mine and stuck some Kadee narrow gauge trucks under it. No prototype, but I wasn't modeling a prototype line. The fictional Salida & Lower Park's management was quite happy with their one tank car.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

Interesting to note that a basic inflation calculator would project this $3.25 model to cost about $23.00 fifty years later.
