Scale Test Car

Scale Test Car

I've got a model of a scale test car that I haven't got around to building yet.  They are kind of interesting, but since there aren't as many good pictures of one as you might think, I'll post some of mine here.

I got these at the Minnesota State Scale in St. Paul in November of 2016.

Note that the build date is 1936.  Also note the round sockets on the ends.  You know what those are for? They're for moving the car using a pole held by a brakeman between the car and a locomotive or truck from another track.  How'd you like that job?
