    Interesting photo, I like the combo even if it did take place before the car was even ordered! Of course you are doing better than me because I can't even figure out how to get the date to show up on my camera.

    I gotta say, for a shortline boxcar, it sure gets around! Australia, all over the US in many eras, it must be floating in time, too!

    Very, nice weathering on a previous post, and the special run train is nice.

    It certainly has got around, and considering the Queensland Prototype gauge is 3'6", it is doing really well here.

    Well, here she is, order car 226. She found herself here in Charleston, SC on my club's layout being pulled around by a Bachmann Spectrum Southern 4-6-0. She looks pretty good riding back there, though maybe a slight bit off on era! First two shots were still shots... the last one caught her whizzing by... sorry for the blur.

    I think the Trainboard car and my Atlas MP box look nice together.

    Couldn't you at least find a section of track for the poor cars? I'm just teasing, yes they do look good together. They actually look better than my out of era cars on a track. Thanks for sharing.

    Here's mine....

    I have to admit that when you put up this shot on your original links:

    http://www.railcarphotos.com/PhotoDetails.php?PhotoID=47133

    That did it.

    So here's my salute:

    I may be the only guy (for now) that can pose it with a round-roof CF7. Challenge?

    I'm also thinking of buying a second one just to weather it like that.

    Microscale has just released the decals for this boxcar in both H0 and N scale. That's the way it happens! Make a nice car and someone else is trying to get their share! It would give you more numbers, though. It's #1416.

    lol I was taking a quick shot with my phone. I didn't have the layout cleaned off enough to get a good shot. I do now!

    I caught several Trainboard special run cars in the PPU East Peoria Yard today: 1 tank car and 4 grain hoppers from 2008, and 5 Missouri-Illinois box cars from 2013.
