Ballast Spreader. This quirky car was constructed from a Howell Day/RedBall kit. The old-fashioned Fox trucks may have come with the kit. Bitter Creek now sells them. The chicken is a Preiser product. In late 2016 Augustus Melmotte sold this car to a Maryland railroad, which purchased many of the AP&G's other cars and buildings.

The photo at right shows the excellent detail as well as the ploughs in these very old kits.
