Dear Fred, Fred, and Fred,.....................while your observations are correct to an extent............................you still haven't noticed a glaring error.

Think of a coin misprint..................last and only clue.

There's too many hatches- they are positioned incorrectly, and backwards on top of that you didn't use Z scale paint..!
I said I wuden't gunna do it but I did.

Fred,
You finally nailed it......but it took a shotgun approach to get the tweedy bird.....good grief Charlie Brown.

This test shot had the top walkway on the wrong side. Top walkways go right above the ladder. Compare the picture to one of your collection and you'll see the problem.

Who knows, maybe my freak version is worth thousands?:laugh:
Your turn.

Gee thanks Loren, it seems I was the only one BWAVE ( read crazy ) enough to take on this chawenge, and I trew everything I had at it- Even a book at the darn computer box.
It might take a little while for me to come up with something- I was not prepared to have the baton passed on to me.
By the way- The new releases from Stone Bridge are very nice, and clever -- Where were youall 20 years ago. You sure would have made my modeling days a lot easier.

Loren-- Upon looking at the foto again, I see now about the roof walk. Neet trick.

Fred,
I once found a bent 50 cent piece as though it had been hit by a lawn mower blade or something. I was doing some landscaping and dug it up while laying PVC pipe.
This was back in 1999. The coin was 100 years old so I figured I had something real rare and I could soon retire.

Jump to the present......I'm still working and I doubt my one of a kind PS2 hopper will make me any more money than that bent coin.

You're right though, sometimes the obvious is so hard to see.

Ok, your turn to come up with something dynamic and clever........well, that will leave me out of the running.

If I should ever be so unlucky enough to guess another right answer I'm really going to be hard pressed to come up with something catchy.

Hey, I know, you guys could all take turns guessing my IQ? It shouldn't take too long to figure it out:silly:

Gee whiz, and here I thought we were trying to trip each other up on train trivia.....now we're talking about genetic freak nine tailed cats?

Wanna see my cross between a Russian wolf hound and Siberian tit mouse?:laugh: :laugh:

Ok- This is fairly easy but I liked the picture. I've learned a lot just by searching the web for these posts. I found the world's largest train ferry ( At the Time)- was in the SF Bay area but could not pull up the pictures. We have Swiss trains going up Pikes Peak. etc....
Now to the present.
Generally speaking- WHAT,( WHERE, because the National Archives has only broad area ) and what happened? This they know!

Petersburg, Union Train, former Richmond & Petersburg, City Point station for the cannon. That's my best guess but, its Saturday and I'm imbibing.

Never mind- I'll let the cat out of the bag now..
According to the archives- When this morter was fired the recoil shattered the flat car- rendering the weapon useless.. So much for government projects....
Since Eric got 2 out of 3-- He wins and can take it from here.

Sorry Loren--
You better watch out for squirels in your neck of the woods- I hear they are collecting nuts for next winter.
