Somewhere on the net I read that the B&M and New Haven used to run solid trains of baggage and express up the Connecticut River line in the Christmas season to handle all the cards and presents. The writer closed by saying he doubted that anyone had every modeled this. Well, I understand a challenge when I see one. I built and painted a bunch of heavy weight baggage cars, and then I wanted to bring it up to date and mix a few streamlined cars in with the heavyweights. These three cars all started life as Athearn streamlined kits. I put wire grabs on all three, painted the undercarriages light gray, touched up the paint, and put a black wash on the air vents.
