On a day after my wife had surgery, a received a box in the mail. I recognized the return address. It was my youngest son, Joseph. Upon opening, for no reason at all, he had sent an addition to the Sue Line car fleet- A Kansas City Southern (KCS) covered hopper (below).


Many thanks to you, for all you do my son.
