Some updates before the end of the month! My sons Cade and Cort have made some good progress. Looking at photos on railcarphotos.com, Cort wanted to show a worn, rusty, dirty log car with recently shopped trucks that have the blue bearing caps (since 4 years old, they called these the "blue roundy round circles), which I love when they say it even now that they are 11 and 9. Cade decided to go with a faded car, which is very common with a blue car. He finally found a use for the blue Bragdon powder! For my car, I wanted a rusted look and decided to shave angles on the top of each log bunk.
