Try a Solid Train Makeup of One Type Car.
MIXED trains on a real railroad are a combination of passenger and freight. Most model railroad trains are mixed in a different sense. The model fan looks for a variety of equipment, and so his freight train may have 10 different types of car out of 10. His passenger train may have a baggage, an R. P. 0., a coach, a Pullman, and an observation.
Mixed rolling stock has well earned its preference in the model field. Not only has this type of train a strong eye appeal, but it offers a varied experience in car design and construction. Especially in the first years of any model line, this is by far the best way to learn car building and railroad car detail.
Almost entirely overlooked has been the eye appeal of the direct opposite of the mixed train, the solid train of all one type of car. This, too, has good reason for adoption by model fans, perhaps more so by the more experienced rails, although it is worth anyone's consideration. A number of one type of car makes a fine construction project for the shops. A production scheme for building a quantity of similar cars efficiently takes planning, and is as much fun as choosing or drawing up more varied designs.
Take the mail train. To all of us the solid mail train has not only eye appeal, in its business-like exterior, but romantic appeal, in the history of the Railway Mail Service and its record for getting the mail through. Line up from 6 to 16 mail cars, storage (baggage), R. P. 0. (Railway Post Office or sorting cars), perhaps a coach on the rear for crew and deadheading employes,
