A new project on the pile - a refurbishment for a set of 314X-series Flyer coaches:

Hopefully just a deep-cleaning and a polish.

A reasonably nice Flyer 3008 found recently:

These are tough to find in nice shape. Flyer paint of this era doesn't seem to hold up very well, especially the lighter colors.

Wrapping up a big project over the next few months...hoping to get back into the basement soon and get the layout sorted.

From the archives, smoke-box shot of a Flyer 3315:

Haven't been to the basement in quite a while.

A Flyer 3208, one of the last variations of the prewar 1/4" O-gauge box car. This introduced link-couplers as a replacement for the tab-couplers featured on earlier equipment. The link provided an automatic coupling capability, whereas the tab-coupler required manual connection. The black trucks gave a bit more "realism" to the car's appearance.
