Default Not Something You See Every Day!!!

Crews are putting this ex-C&O car on her new home rails in Fort Mill, SC for a private owner. The car will be as an office for a local businessman and will be stranded from an ctual railroad though within distance of the Norfolk Southern. (I'm not sure you'dbe able to see the tracks though through the town hall.)

The car was brought up by truck from the Lancaster and Chester Railway.

My own personal spur complete with detachable utility hookups (for when I'm not taking private railcar trips). RR version of a mobile home!

I would get an old Santa Fe Corrugated Business Car, just like the one Kato makes in HO scale.

Hell if I ever one really big in the lotto (say Powerball big) I would buy out the Virginia Southern and turn it into a tourist railroad. Make alot more money than the current incarnation of that railroad.

If I won the lottery, I would have my buisness coach, a private spur, that leads right to my huge mansion at the Tehachapi Loop. I would own the Tehachapi Loop land, and UP would be paying me! If only....

But wait...if I did have a coach, what would pull it? A freight train? Amtrak doesn't normally run over Tehachapi...
