Another Tyco fixer upper, these were crates that were on a flat car. Airbrushed rail tie brown. The mounts for the flatcar are from the Walthers proto 2000 cars, these were on the trucks for as part of the packaging. (I've used these a lot for different things) The Intermountain car is very light so this gave me a place to hide some weight. I trimmed out the center section, glued two together,added weight and painted. The look I was going for was created machinery. As you can see the Walthers truck keeper fit perfectly over the deck of the flatcar and the ends slightly wrap around the edge so it can't slide off.
