    It is a Model Power, Made in Korea, all metal. I have only run once or twice in the last 16-20 years. Guess I should try it out and check for room, somewhere, for a small Zimo decoder.

    A little late this week!

    I got a couple of cars done this week!

    [​IMG]

    Intermountain 1937 AAR Boxcar kit, with the ends from an Intermountain 10' High 12 Panel Boxcar to make it into a postwar 1944 AAR Boxcar as the 1937 car has 4/5 panel ends and the postwar car has a 3/4 Dreadnaught End, also had to remove the top rectangular rib as the CNJ cars did not have them. Also added Yarmouth Model Sill Steps in place of the plastic ones. Car was painted with a mixture of Scalecoat II Roof Brown and Boxcar Red and lettered with Tichy decals. These were originally lettered for the CRP (Central Railroad of PA), but after CNJ lost the court case with the State of New Jersery they were re-lettered. Used in general service and could be seen on the NKP as they were part of the Alpha Bet route between Chicago and New York City.

    Tichy 53'6" GSC Flat Kit, painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and lettered with Tichy Decals. Also added a DUHA plate steel load as the EJ&E was a US Steel road.

    Had my Athearn FP7's at the club last weekend, made up a mail and express train with RPO, 2-R50b Express Reefers, 3-REX Express Reefers, 2-Express Boxcars, a Combine and Coach.

    Thanks for looking!
