Oops! If I didn't know better, I'd have thought somebody snuck into my layout room the other day! Except all my boxcars have roofwalks. (c. 1940-'50)

Not sure if that is as bad as 30 tank cars of the MRL "Gas local", knocked on their sides in Missoula yard a few years ago, when the tail end of the train got clipped by another entering the yard behind it.

Either that, or they were making it easier to check the tank bottoms and the wheels/trucks.

Great video and the shots of the rolling stock shows some nice weathering ideas and I like the loads in the gondolas as well!!!!

Sort looked like someone's layout at first.
