Working Ballast Hopper Car
CRR #203

June 15th, 2016

This is the first piece of new construction since moving to Tennessee in October.


This is a Cannonball Limited 34" single bay Working Ballast Car That I picked up at the Mid-South spring meet.

And a chance to use my new Hobart Handler 130 welder I bought online from Blain's Farm and Fleet. It is truly first class.

As you would expect, there are two ways to build the car -- the way Cannonball says, and the way I want to build it. Which do you think I chose?
