Working On The Railroad

Back in the day there was a rumour going round that there were military suplus Harley Davidson motorcycles to be had. I dis-remember the exact details, but I do remember a group of us Air Force types were to pool our money to get one, or several in a lot, or something.

Anyway, it never happened. The book The Vanishing Hitchhiker, by Jan Harold Brunvand, mentions this urban legend.

Well, I'm re-creating the dream on my model railroad by putting one of those motorcycles I was working on in a shipping crate. So far, I've got the crate done, made out of plastic.

This picture is pretty much the same, so don't look at it.

I think the box came out rather well. Now I need to get some guys to stand around looking at it.

I was given this cute little pencil lead box. You may look at it.

The leads would be contained in the wooden tray.
