Got some work done also this week along with a number of project in progress.



Tangent RTR car that came in basic gray paint, added the flag placard and decaled the car with Mark Vaughn's Wabash decals. Original car was built in 1962 and I don't know how long it lasted in Wabash paint. There are no known closeup pictures of the car, so I had to go by the diagram that came with the decals. The only known picture of this car is a pair of them shot from a distance on the Detroit River Ferry.



Intermountain Railway 5283 CF FMC Boxcar Kit, painted with Floquil GTW Blue and Platinum Mist Paints, then lettered with Herald King Decals. The prototype cars were built in early 1975 but were transferred to the BAR in 1976 with the demise of the MILW Road.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, Carl!

Finished a couple of cars this week:



Branchline 40' 1944 AAR Boxcar kit, added roof hatches at each end of the car, replaced the roofwalk with a Plano Morton style roofwalk, and A-Line Sill Steps in place of the plastic ones. Painted the car with Scalecoat IC Orange and lettered with Dan Kohlbergs decals. Car was built in 1961 and one of 90 modified in 1970 with the roof hatches and roofwalk for hauling salt, the ICG only expected the cars to last 5 years in that service but 5 cars made it to the 1980 ORER.



Red Caboose Coil Flat painted with Scalecoat II ICG Orange and Black Paint and then lettered with Dan Kohlbergs decals. Car was a new build in 1975.

Thanks for looking!

Good looking cars, Rick, lots of bright reds.

I've been frustrated in replacing my photo storage. Still investigating.
