How many of you remember the Birdwater & Raspberry RR cartoons that once appeared in Garden Railways magazine? I think some of my whimsical models were indirectly inspired by those delightful cartoons. Don’t know whether anyone will salute, but thought I would run a thread up the flagpole for folks to post BW&R inspired whimsical models. Here are a few of mine:
This whimsical “necessity accommodation car” certainly echoes the BW&R cartoons.
The “Little Deuce Caboose” is another nod.
The “Fast Mail” jet propelled railcar also harkens to the BW&R.
Although somewhat longer than BW&R equipment, the Tin Cup Car is in the same whimsical spirit.
OK, your turn.
Best, David Meashey
