Several Green Bay & Western models made by Mark Mathu.

Scrap Iron
It's 1944 and the country needs steel - a lot of steel - to fight the world war. This Kewaunee Green Bay & Western gondola is spotted at the salvage yard, ready to take a load of scrap iron to the mill to be converted into new steel.
GB&W #310 leads a freight train
A freight train lead by GB&W Alco RS-27 #310 passes PI Tower in the town of Independence.
GBW #617
My model of GBW caboose #617, modeled as it would appear not long after it was delivered in 1966 -- with windows and roofwalk intact.


GBW #682
This HO McKean 40' PS-1 boxcar kit came pre-painted and lettered by Accurate Finishing for GBW 682 with a 1967 rebuilt date on the car. The kit is a close, though not exact, model of the prototype, but it captures the overall feel of GBW's ubiquitous yellow boxcar fleet of the 1960s and beyond.
GBW #799
This 40' PS-1 boxcar with a 6' Superior door from Kadee Quality Products Company  is a fantastic ready-to-run car.
GBW 834
A Kar-Line kit from the 1960s.
