Managed to get a couple of cars done this week.



First up is a Intermountain ACF 4650CF Covered Hopper Kit, painted with Scalecoat II Reefer White and lettered with Islington Station Products Decals. Prototype was buiilt in 1977 and was in Kaolin Clay Service. The 1977 built date requires the use of the ACI label use of which was discontinued in 1979.



Exactrail Evans 4780CF Covered Hopper Kit, painted with Scalecoat II Reefer White and lettered with Herald King Decals. Another 1977 built car used in grain service, again date requires the ACI label.

Thanks for looking!

With Photobucket Back online, I have pictures of a couple of cars I finished this week, not Green but they did serve in Boston, which is an Irish town!



The New Haven did not have any steel sided boxcars and had none delivered from World War I until the advent of World II, These 1937 AAR Design Cars were delivered in 1940 and were different than most as they had Apex Steel Walkways versus the normal wood walkways. I used an IMWX kit for starters and substituted a Apex Walkway from an IMRC PS1 kit I had in the scrap box, also used metal sill steps from Yarmouth Model Works in place of the plastic ones. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Oxide Red and Black paints, then decaled with decals from Speedwich Media.



After WWII the New Haven acquired some PS1 40' Boxcars, these were unique on the New Haven as they had 10'6" height and their next order had some of the few 10' Inside Height PS1 boxcars ever made. Car is an Intermountain kit with Metal A-Line Sill Steps substituted for the plastic ones. Car was also painted with Scalecoat II Oxide Red and Black Paints and lettered with Speedwich Media Decals.

Thanks for looking!
