Christmas Train: Flatcar Three


Many fire departments decorate apparatus for Christmas parades and we’ve seen at least one carried on a flat car on a holiday train!  Thus, this Walthers TrainLine model of a Burlington Northern 50 foot steel flat car carries Boley #2202-78, a model of an S & S CC Ladder Truck in colorful white and yellow, festooned (using wax) with “dollhouse” Christmas lights and green garland (also from a dollhouse supply shop).  The attachment of the fire truck to the flat car was accomplished by using plastic parts from HO model vehicle packaging waxed to the underside of the fire truck and to the flat car.  A plastic Santa mini of unknown manufacture and age (probably 1970s) is attached with wax behind the fire truck.
