MOC: Classic Cattle Car

5 posts in this topic

Continuing my classic train build, I thought I want try building a classic-style cattle car using new and old elements. The result is this red and tan cattle car for Farmer Jeb's black & white cows:

Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to get them off the wagon - perhaps a cow crane?

It would look really cool if the cows were in a box car and there where holes cut out. so they could stick their head out. Now that would be cool. :classic:

You could try building a ramp that leads down into an enclosure like the classic Lionel Cattle Car's, except that it wouldn't go in a circle back into the car :tongue:

Nice and simple, hope those cows aren't thinking about jumping out though. :tongue:

Is that wood piece on the bottom a decal or is it a printed piece?

That's a great idea. Thanks. I was really wanting some sort of ramp that attaches to the gondola itself, but your Lionel idea would work well.

Yes. That's one of the printed 1x6 wood tiles from the Harry Potter Shrieking Shack, a nice piece for some added detail.
