The Standard Gauge Idler Car


Here is Barry's first two Standard Gauge Idler cars.  Used in mixed

trains between Narrow Gauge and Standard Gauge cars, Barry will

use these during operations to have “dual gauge trains”. 

   Note, he has built two cars, but all my photos are of just car 010793.

   And photos show car started in December 2003, finished in Spring 2004.
