In 2014, Model Railroader magazine celebrates 80 years in publication. Coincidentally, 40 years ago MR Senior Editor Jim Hediger was just getting started as a staff editor when he was charged with shepherding the production of a custom-run boxcar to commemorate MR's 40th anniversary. In this episode, Jim recounts the challenges of making and distributing this car in three different modeling scales. Be sure to watch the entire episode to see which current staff member was a sorely disappointed youngster when his desired car never arrived!
