  Second photo, worm's eye view of wreck.
All car's were either flat car's or were  converted to gondola's,
or had  the home built boxcar body added. Common under frame on
car's.

Forgot to credit the photo to the Kootenay Lake Archives.

First photo should be

KLA 988.40.1362b

Hi Ken :wave:



Looks like a nasty WRECK ! :shocked:



Possibly a Canadian    moose  :moose:  on the line, might have caused the driver to swerve suddenly ?  ;)



I'm a bit worried.

Your boxcar is looking really nice. :)

I don't think you should model this ^^ scene ...
... I'd keep the finished car in it's pre-wreck condition myself. :old dude:



:cool:



Si.



What's going on with the trees there Ken ? ???

It sorta looks 'logged' ... But why are there loads of trunks, without branches ?? ???

Has something to do with Mother Nature and a forest fire.

In 1910 a fire came through again and burned every thing

in it's path railway, mine's and mill's and what was left of

any towns this would destroy the railway and the CPR would

build there own line through here to Kaslo in 1910 / 1914 to

serve the mining industry as it was rebuilt.

Not likely I would model this scene, the one interesting

thing is the outfit? car, still upright only photo I have

ever come across of a K&S boxcar with window's. At one time

they had an XGNR 4 wheel caboose but it was wrecked after

running away on the branch line to Cody. Majority of trains

were ran as mixed after this.

Canadian Ken Eh!

The FCHH box car finally made it to the paint shop, a couple of shade's of grey, a coupe of more shade's to go.
Frame primed for a paint job.

The K&SRly nick name was "The Skyline Limited",
as once the line reached the summit it was built as a level line for the last 10 miles to reach Sandon.
The N&SRly (CPR) line from the West needed 5 Miles of 4.85% grade to reach Sandon from Three Forks.

Hi Ken  :apl:  Eh!



I was kinda hoping for a blast of 'Railbox' yellow myself ... ;)

I just keep seeing 'Caterpillars' EVERYWHERE though ! :shocked:



" The Skyline Limited "

Hey, so not 'The Lucky Line' after all then.

I think their 'official' nick-name is much more like it. :thumb:



Talking of train WRECKS as one does ... Here's a 'Tale Of Two Boxcars' that I wouldn't want on my line !





Must have got the DCC programming wrong on the reverse setting or something ?



My ol' mate Malcolm at the Railroad Club, was always stripping his truck screw holes ...

... he never was much of a 'Maine Central' fan though. L:



:P

Sorry no Railbox yellow or for that matter Caterpillar Yellow,
Much perfer the Prussian Orange color of the Allis Chalmer dozer's myself.

Photo of the FCHH boxcar, still need to add name & number boards, figured easier to paint with out them in place.
Will be going through my decals for proper sized lettering.
Once in place I will respray car with shading Gray.

Hi Ken :wave: Eh!



Lookin' good !



Slightly like it is in the Transporter-Room of the Starship Enterprise though ... ???

... but I'm sure it will re-materialize fully at a later stage ! ;)



"  Sorry no Railbox yellow or for that matter Caterpillar Yellow,

I have to agree, that is a nice colour indeed. :thumb:

I think 'Humbrol' even have something a bit like that, straight outta the can ? L:



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:



The engines can nay take it Jim ! !  :shades:



Si.



Meanwhile back in sleepy Slocan   .   .   .

Chalmers tractor's. No idea why First Gear painted their

Allis-Chalmers model 21 Cat Yellow though :bang:.

will get busy on the Cigar tank car, Winter just will not

stop this year it seem's every time the road's are clear

another fall of snow happen's. Still have snow from last Oct

in my back yard.
