Years ago I visited the Sierra Railroad yards and found one of the old Yosemite Short Line boxcars on display. It was in sad shape but I was able to stick my camera through various holes and get some photos of the interior.
I have always enjoyed the basic look of the Rio Grande Southern plow/flanger #02. But I have never tried to build my own version. Finally I started and quickly ended up with this new piece of rolling stock on my layout.
I did not want to model the RGS 02 exactly so I just worked on mine until it looked "good enough" for me.
"Good enough" was never in my vocabulary until recently.
In my early days I built every model as if it would be entered into a contest. But I rarely entered anything so I was really building for just me.
As I got older my eyesight began to fail and my skills were falling off as well so I realized that "good enough" was the best I could shoot for.
