I really like the "Little Wally" brakeman figures. They add a certain value to the cars. I like the fact that they are flexible and can be adjusted to fit on the ladders. I originally had one hanging off each side of the cars but I soon learned that my milk platform is not very forgiving of brakemen hanging off the sides of the cars as they go by. Therefore, the Little Wallys can only safely ride on one side.
These cars are the first RMT products I purchased and I am very impressed with them. I bought them from GB Train Shop in Green Bay Wisconsin, and the minute I saw them, I knew they would be a great addition to my layout.
Item shown is recently purchased RMT-96716 MILW Ore car set.
