Scenic Details.

Rode the bike out past the GATX tank car repair shop in west Colton this morning and sighted two things that could be included on a model
railroad:
1.) The original old Plymouth shop switcher that served GATX for many years and is now sitting out in front of the shops on display.

2.) A smallish (circa 12' long X 3' high) water tank (at least is *says* "water" on the side) sitting out by the edge of the employee's parking lot. The tank has been "customised" in the finest southern California hot-rodding tradition to resemble -that's right- a GATX tank car: complete with reporting marks.

Truth is stranger then fiction. And less common, too.

Heck, if you've got any sort of back yard you could model it at 1:1.

And motor it. Hmmm ...
Wonder if you could license something like that.
