    Greetings all,
    To my knowledge the QA&P never had a crane, or tender, but if they had, it could have looked something like these.
    Been having some fun with QA&P MW stuff in the last few days. The crane is Tichy, and the tender is made using remnants of 3 different cars, a kind of bash between a MDC flat car, Athearn flat bottom gon and MDC caboose end platforms, with a bunch of detail odds and ends.
    The shorty gondolas are the end pieces of a couple other Athearn gondola kit bash projects in the works.
    Thanks for looking and lets have fun out there.

    Those are nice looking models and a sharp decal job to boot. That crane looks very nicely detailed. Now to put them to work.

    Thanks Guys

    I appreciate the comments and kind words. I really should start throwing some of these parts away sometimes. I sure have a blast doing these "what if" things.
    Even if they make no sense art all.
