Really Nice Video Johnny !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Bob. Let me first say 'Thank You' for your service so that we can enjoy things like this.That is a real piece of history that you have built, Johnny. You do awesome work!!!
I never saw that particular Freedom Train, as I was stationed overseas when it made it's rounds. I certainly remember going with my Dad to see the first one when it toured the US in 1947. It was headed by a PA-1 if I remember correctly... and the train was a beauty.
Once again, congratulations on such a project so beautifully done!!!
Hello Rock4329(great username) To tell you the truth I didn't know the CNW had any wide visions. I just painted two of them for practice. But they are both going to be repainted into the MadCoW scheme soon. Thanks for watching the thread and I offer this pic as a peace maker.......LOLengineerbill,
Not to get off the subject of the freedom train, which I've been following all along. But I just had to mention that I LOVE the CNW caboose shot!!! There are just two things that I have to let you know, though. CNW's wide vision cabooses are more of the Athearn style than the Atlas style of caboose. And 11092 would have actually been a number on a bay window caboose. CNW's 10 wide vision cabooses were in the 25xxx series. Other than that, I LOVE that caboose!!!!
Also, I LOVE this AFT thread!!!
