Anyway that gave me an excuse to add some color to the PRSL. I acquired a shell and used it on a duplicate RS3 that was on my roster. Broke one of the handrails and still need to add couplers but I love having it.
Reading RS3s were frequent visitors during my early 1950s time period, so it is just a little stretch to put it on the layout.
Meanwhile set up a quick photo shoot (with 1950s tankers) just because it was so pretty.
