    I have heard of this happening with a few other folks, this style of lid/applicator. I had it happen recently as well. Leads me to believe the quality of material is not as good as it used to be...

    Agreed. Used to be that the plastic cap would reject the glue's adhesion. With this new reality in mind, I've been religiously rinsing out my wood glue cap after each use. Like BNSF FAN, I keep unused spares on hand just in case. I try not to waste supplies; even simple glues have gotten expensive.

    You guys are right. This was one of the newer tops and the glue does seem to stick to them more than on the older ones. I have several old ones so a replacement wasn't a problem. I also got lucky that this happened on a bottle that was only about 1/3 full. Otherwise, I would have probably had a big spill/mess going on. :eek:

    What's the story on the NS hopper?

    Actual paint scheme done by NS back in I think late 2013? At one point for a short time, this car even carried a N Scale Enthusiast logo on the upper right corner. This is the the Atlas version but there was also a special run of it done by M/T for the N Scale Enthusiast (maybe I'll score that version someday). There are a fair number of pics of the car on line and based on the dates for some of those pictures, it appears that it is still out and roaming the rails in this scheme.
