Hagerstown & Frederick Brill No. 172, from Bruce Battles

This car was 3-D printed by Shapeways. The prototype ran in Maryland, on the Hagerstown & Frederick. There were 5 cars in this group, nos. 168-172, built by Brill, one or two at a time, between 1917 and 1921. The model is car 172, the last of the series. 

The H&F was a pastoral, rural operation that ran through the hilly, wooded countryside of western Maryland, and lasted until February of 1954.  It was very popular with railfans in its later years, and is very well documented.  This model is one of four in existence, and was made from plans drawn by Charles Bushman, who was a member of the Baltimore Streetcar Museum for many years.
