Sometime in the 1880s, the company photographer captured this scene in the railroad yards in Albion. The two worktrain cars (a flatcar and hopper) were scratchbuilt, and the old-time boxcar was kitbashed. The Cutler & Savidge Lumber Co. wooden boxcar is a Central Valley kit. In the background one sees the General, which has just filled its sand dome at the yellow and red sandhouse. A lower right we see an engineer crossing the yard, lunchbox in hand. (Yes, I overuse this Preiser figure in my photographs, but I think it always adds a great deal of realism to my scenes) [GPL].
