Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day one hundred and forty-five of that project.

This quilt block shows a railroad car against a light blue salmon-patterned background. The railroad car is a light orange box with a yellow sign on the side with black lettering that reads, "Freight." The light orange box rests on a brown base which has a hook on the right side for the next railroad car to attach. There are two dark wheels which have spokes outlined in light thread.

Here is a railroad freight car.

It’s the last car in our little train. This train is unique.

It’s a little train that serves the district where That Town is.

This car delivers all kinds of freight to the surrounding area. Feed to farms and lumber to a building project.

When Mrs. Johnson got a new living room sofa the little train delivered it.

When Scott ordered feeder pigs from the next county, they came bedded down in straw in the freight car.

At the end of a few months those same hogs loaded up to go to market. Scott came to the train yard both times and cleaned out the freight car.

Everyone loves That Town’s little train.
