Part 57: LaBelle HOn3 gondola

M Graff


I built a LaBelle HOn3 gondola kit, and decided to make a honorary car for my late mother Yvonne who died last year of cancer.

I have already a mine on my layout called the Ywon mine.

So this became the Yvon/Ywon Gold mine Co. car number 47 (as in her birth year).


Weathered to represent a well used car that has shipped a lot of gold ore.



The text are dry transfers. The boggies are 3D printed from Shapeways with Kadee wheels.



The couplers are Sergent Sharon-couplers.


I'm very satisfied with it.
