Rege Cordic created the Olde Frothingslosh name for his Pittsburgh radio show in the 1950s. Several Olde Frothingslosh model railroad beer cars were later created for his H.O. Lazy River Railroad. Rege's personal collection of Olde Frothingslosh cars are displayed here alongside the cars created by the Car Shoppes at Forest City  with the gracious permission of the Cordic family & Ric Collins.  

   

A note to Rege:

You have given the model railroading community more than you might have ever realized. Your goal was to make people smile, and those of us that are lucky enough to have an Olde Frothingslosh car, and know the story behind it, smile every time we see it rolling through our miniature towns and country sides.

Thanks Rege
