The CRT has done a fantastic job of bring the Creche to the location where Santa was giving out gifts.
Instead of "Where's Waldo?", where is the pink flamingo? Click on the photo if your eyes need help.
S-300 was a boom car rebuilt in 1947 from S-6 by either the CRT or CTA to replace the 1st S-300. S-300 survived unto 1972 after spending a long time in the Logan Square yard for many years. I saw it twice daily during the late 1950's and early 60's. The model was scratch built by me from plans and photos provided by Bruce Moffat. My son helped to interpret the size and type of lumber used in building the car, cab, and boom from photos.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
