    As I have some time off, I'm busy repainting all the G scale I have in stock.

    I started on some coal hoppers. I like the two tone paint scheme you see now everywhere on the modern coal hoppers.

    And then I have to weather all that stuff as well! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nice work Paul. A string of these will look outstanding.

    I'd love to have only about 5-6 of these hoppers but I can't seem to find any. Are they still being manufactured?

    Dave, I'm pretty sure that Trainworld in NY still has these cars in stock, of course not undecorated ones.

    The price of LGB is rather high I presume around $60.00. I bought my cars at an auction in Belgium for around $40.00.

    But I have also a rake of 12 hoppers of Bachmann I bought from their closeout sales for $20.00 a piece.

    I'm pretty sure that after repainting, kadee couplers and metal wheels they will look as fine as the LGB ones.
