    Good morning from sunny and mild Northeast Ohio! (after days of rain).

    Here is another West India Fruit Boxcar, in 1958 (probably due to all the salt air corrosion) the WIF repainted all their boxcars into this new scheme of green with yellow lettering. Intermountain 1944 Welded side AAR Boxcar kit, painted with Scalecoat II Hunter Green Paint and lettered with Speedwitch Media decals.

    Jumping forward 20 years is a Proto 2000 PS 4427 CF Covered Hopper Kit. The C&NW acquired around 500 of these cars in 1969 after they came off the original TLDX leases when the leases expired. They were originally painted in C&NW Green with yellow lettering, and repainted in the late 70's in the Zito Yellow with black lettering. Car was painted with Scalecoat II C&NW Yellow Paint and lettered with Oddballs decals. Also added a Plano etched metal roofwalk to the kit.

    Here are my new Rapido CP FP7's. I have always liked the CP Script Scheme!

    Thanks for looking!

    That is a photo is one that I took 10 years ago. I just pulled it up to post this morning from my files. Today in the mail I received three new Texas Special sleeping cars from Lowell Smith. Now I can replace the ancient Atlas/Rivarossi chair cars that have been substituting for 14-4 sleepers. These are actually 10-6 sleepers but way closer than what I was using.

    Let's see- Where to start? This is another week of seamlessly excellent photos, from Russell's and Wolf's passenger trains and Tom's Frisco Geeps to Sven's excellent Z scale scenes. The old time shots from Jim, John and Montanan were also great and BNSF Fan's intermodal yard seems to go on forever. Very impressive!
