So I was doubly thrilled to find a box from Elgin Car Shops arrived in today's mail - although I have to admit I was expecting it. A couple of weeks ago Elgin proprietor Pierre Oliver sent me a email asking for my home address, since he had something he wanted to send me. Imagine my surprise when I opened the box to find a Sunshine Models kit for a New York Central 1-1/2 door boxcar. That was great - but the best part was the fact that car was finished - on a railroad with precious few "Finished" cars anything "Done" is worthy of a blog post - and a sincere thank you.
Actually, this past week I've contracted with Pierre to build a couple of other cars. Having seen his work in person I highly recommend.
For details on Elgin Car Shops check out his website.
And as requested Pierre, now I can say "Pierre Oliver built that car for me . . ."
