The Western & Atlantic Railroad Company--MAKING LEMONADE OUT OF LEMONS
By Joe Endicott

As an LCCA member, I ordered the “Halloween” General Set.

An add-on pair to this set included a cannon display car.

It seems that Lionel did not realize how much UPS delivery people had “heavy hands” with these shipments.

It turns out that some of the cannons broke loose from their supports and damaged the windows; as well as chipped bits of paint off of the cannons themselves.

A replacement car was sent from Lionel and the cannons of this new car are permanently affixed inside.

We were informed by LCCA not to return the damaged cannon cars to either LCCA or Lionel.

I then converted it and made it a dandy mint car # 1890.
