Arctic Monsters

About every other time I rail fan in Baltimore there’s a cut of cryogenic reefers spotted at Terminal H (Canton RR territory). These monsters are block-out-the-sun massive. Photos really don’t capture the impact they make in person. Between their size and paint scheme, it’s hard not to be drawn to them. Thirty years ago Walthers came out with a model version. The kits were produced before “fine scale” freight car production technology was available so they’re a little on the crude size. Still, it’s better than nothing. I picked a few up and will spend some time cleaning them up a little.

The instructions that come with the Walthers kit have a truly excellent write-up on the cars.
