Olympia Beer Boxcar

This HO scale Olympia Beer boxcar has been in my collection a long time.  I acquired it many years before we ever started talking about moving to Olympia, so when I started going through my collection the other night I knew that this was going to be a really early piece to shoot and share.

Sadly the brewery here in Olympia has been closed for a number of years now, but the influence that the brewery had on the area is still evident almost everywhere you look, it was a major part of the local economy for a very long time.

I hope you enjoy this image.  Please click on it to see a larger version.

    I gotta admit, I’m really digging your lighting on these HO images. I need to send my father-in-law a link to these as he will love them immensely.

      Thanks Chris. So far I am only using the Nikon CLS. I figure if it is good enough for Joe McNally, it is good enough for me. :-)

    Man, what a cool shot. I agree with the others, the lighting really adds to the scene nicely.

    I’m inspired to dig out my old Lionel set. :)
