Boxcab critter

Here are a few shots of a “critter” I built several years ago, before I was sure of the era I was going to be working with, although I think I could justify this engine in the mid 30’s.

It started as an Athern Hustler, I replaced the terrible drive with a Northwest Short Lines power truck, and replaced the body with a Cary cast metal body.

The round cylindrical things on the roof are a couple of resistors I cut off of a PC board. I painted it CN olive green and added Micro scale decal stripes to the front and back. I will likely add a decoder to this one and add it to the consist, maybe even a Soundtraxx unit, would be very neat!

The thing pulls like a tank.
