Here is a log car I did some time ago for my Lost Creek RR. I purchased the kit and weathered from info from the same web site. It was lot easier than I had first thought and a great tutorial.

Hi Dallas
Not doing much today it's freezing cold and blowing a gale outside so I'm just fluffing around.
Thanks for your products and all of the details on your web page, they are a great inspiration, pity I don't have any today :-)
Now my fun and finance minister wants me to go out and buy some hot pies for lunch.
Rod.

Wow is all I can say to the weathering! It went from "cheapie plastic toy" to something that looks realistic! Nice work.

For those who don't want to modify some link and pin couplers I got a few off Ebay. Not a bad idea for "multi consist" setups where the railcars will stay together indefinitely.
