Here's the progress on the Sugar Beet Cars.
Here's the beat-up one. I am going to do more like this one.....I really like the "run it till the wheels fall off" look of this car.
These were just painted with a Model Masters spray can. Color is Light Earth. I am going to weather the braces and supports, as well as all the wood.
Found some extra trucks and put the Fox Valley wheels in them. Trucks will be painted later.
Still need to find some lettering for these. I am going to go with the Holly Sugar markings.
Thats looks great Jerry .
Here's a picture I just took that really shows the difference in the top of the cars. A half dozen or so of these should add alot of realism to the Beet train.
good looking cars there Jerry. I really like the damaged one. Will you do more damaged cars after that one?
Yes, I am going to 'bang-up' a few more.
Nice work Jerry! The unit beets is gonna look awesome!
Jerry .. hit the wheels with some grime ... make that train look a lot better ..
Yea, definatly! That will be done during the weathering part of each car. Have to have those grimy oily wheels from those old bearings.
Santa Fe beets?
Those look like SP cars to me but your thread says ship and travel santa fe?...dave
Jerry they look great. For Decals try the freight yard. Darren used to have a special run of them.
Great job! Looking forward to see decaling and weathering
Yes, these are SP and Holly Sugar cars. ATSF is my favorite railroad, and will be well represented on my layout but right now, the SP line is 95% complete, so I have been doing alot of SP modeling lately.
Thanks Nick!! Emailed and talk to them at the Freight Yard....big help!
This might be off topic but, since you said the SP.
If the Daylight ran threw there would you have it on your layout Jerry?
Looks great Jerry. Whatever happened to the sugar beet train?
Brian, the Daylight DID run through there, the San Joaquin Daylight. Thats the one I will have running on mine.
