[quote]The latest from the Razorback Traction Co shops!

I was going for a Depression-era bright color look. Not bad for some rattlecan paint and masking tape, if I do say so myself!

This train can be seen (and will be for sale) at the Springfield, MO train show on 9/22/18. [/quote]

        The cheapest piece was $10, essentially a plastic shell with wheels and axles; a toy, really. He wanted $100 for a box of rusty old tracks!
