    After being sick last week I finally finished these cars, also decaling ribbed side cars takes a lot longer than smooth side cars.



    This is the second Morrison-Knudson Covered Hopper, that I did out of their fleet of 274 cars. Atlas PS2 2003 CF Covered Hopper painted Armour Yellow and lettered with Herald King Decals.



    This is a McKeen Models ACF Exterior Post Boxcar that I am using to stand in for a Major-Freuhauf X74 Boxcar. Substituted a X-Panel Roof from a Branchline Berwick kit to replicate the difference between the X71 and X74 Boxcars. All were used for clean lading products, mostly paper loading. Floquil PC Green paint and lettered with Microscale Decals.



    This is an Eel River Models, 62' PC&F RBL used for hauling Coors Beer from Golden Co. Assembled the flat kit and painted with Scalecoat Aluminum and Armour Yellow and lettered with Microscale Decals.

    Thanks for looking!

    Rule 1: This is my railroad.
    Rule 2: I make the rules.
    Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!:eyeroll:

    You have done a good job weathering and painting and decaling your cars.

    Nice shot Russell, but you best get off the water tower before the authorities see you up there.

    A good sermon should be like a woman's skirt: short enough to rouse the interest, but long enough to cover the essentials.

    Candy,

    Excellent shots as previously. The old, somewhat deteriorating brick factory is great. but I really have to ask-What do you use to make your streets? Plaster, drywall mud, or ? As a Michiganian, I really need a good way to model the potholes, rough pavement, etc. as you have done very well.

    I use drywall mud. I use masking tape every place I don't want the mud to stay, like the sidewalks. I pull the tape off when the mud is still wet. I try to do the roadway as well as I can to reduce sanding. I paint it with WS slate gray and weather it with white chalk. You will like the way if comes out.
