Pere Marquette 1225 with Modified Troop Sleeper - Bluerender

I have memories of chasing this locomotive across Michigan with my Dad in his 1961 Lincoln Continental. The locomotive operating team rode in tow behind the engine in a bright green converted Pullman troop sleeper. The train guys waved at us from out of a wide door that had been cut in the sleeper when it was converted to a baggage car.

Unfortunately, the Pullman sleeper should be the same height at the tender, but the transition into Lego had the locomotive and tender built at a different scale than the Pullman.
