Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
As I've developed my Atlantic yard office scene , it's become clear that the Engineering/MOW Department's boom truck should play a key role, as Atlantic is the MOW base for the west end of the railroad, so that truck shows up often in photos of the area. While the present-day boom truck is a more recent Sterling purchase, during my May 2005 era, it was a Ford F800. Nothing similar is readily available in HO scale, so I decided to kitbash it, and since other railroads had similar F800s, I thought others might be interested as well. I'll detail the work involved in the first reply.
