More Cars for Como, November 13, 2019

This is what attracted my attention while I was posting about the C&S trucks a while ago...

5773 arrives como.JPG

We received three cars from the Durango & Silverton today;

D&RGW 778, 5773 and 5743 on track 17 in Como. All three cars came from Tacoma siding on the D&S

778 and 5773 will be parts sources for other restoration projects (two Colorado & Southern boxcar bodies) while 5743 will be restored in Como. (5773 will also provide parts, including a side sill, for 5743)

Drop bottom 778 was burned to death in Durango years ago. Also, its two outer truss rods are now on the short reefer in Silverton.

5773 good side como.JPG
This side of 5773 doesn't look too bad...

5773 bad side como.JPG
The other side leaves something to be desired however.
