So I'm wandering around the Dollar Tree store and I found this:





Some sort of tank with a separate fuel storage.





I can use the fuel storage tank, repainted of course.

The tank I think I'll remove the turret,
and make it into some sort of tracked vehicle for dragging who-knows-what.

But, for only a dollar how could I go wrong.

In the late January afternoon the shop crew tests out the mail/baggage car.





A little tight passing by The Bad Burro on the left and the Bloated Goat on the right.

It's tight but it fits... Just barely.

Further on the transfer dock had to be moved over slightly,
as the handrails were hitting the dock.

The car measures about 6'9" over the side handrails. 
A little wider than planned, but at least I know what the limit is now.

On the overall that counts as success.

The Bloated Goat (right)
has a window that faces the track.

If the train goes slow enough,
a thirsty passenger could grab a quick drink as it passes.

Here are a couple of photos of the new mail/baggage car,
and NI&E's lone boxcar at the transfer dock in San Miguel.

The transfer dock doubles as a passenger platform. 
Not that there are very many passengers. 

But for those few brave souls,
that don't mind getting bounced around on NI&R's rough track,
there is slow and undependable rail service available.

Another trip to the Dollar Tree and found this.  The jeep is more HO scale, but the mixer is some larger scale.

Figured I might be able to use the mixer.
