I have become quite partial to shorty cars while building the On30 modules. In surfing around to find more cars for the fleet, I found a company that I had not heard of before, Mount Blue Model Co. They have several kits that are perfect for what I want, are priced really well, and no too far away from me.
This kit adapts a Bachman 18' flat car into an awesome shorty pulpwood car. The kit did not come with a load but, I filled this one with short cut and split wood meant for the North Atkinson Paper's locomotives. There is almost 1000 pieces of hand split wood in this car!
I have to say, these Mount Blue kits are really nice. I am super happy with how this car turned out. I also purchased an 18' reefer kit that I started to assemble this evening. Pics of that tomorrow.
Maybe I'll get to that ballast soon too =p
