my brain thought of this comment but I held back...8-D

what might be more fun is to fix the interior and put a model railroad in it, maybe South Shore based...

There's a IHB caboose in Whiting I'm sure no one would notice if it was "scalped" to better the "SS" cause.

We're hoping to get to the Nippon car kit this year. I'll make an announcement here when we have photos posted on the IHP website.

We're also working on our long-promised remastering of the IC/Metra Highliner MU. More info on this one will be available in a few days.

We're trying to make as many people as possibly happy with our choice of releases, and these are for you Chicago folks.
