    Good morning from cloudy, cold and rainy/snowy Northeast Ohio!

    Russell, thanks for starting us out this morning, nice work!

    First Up is an Atlas FMC 5077CF Plate B IPD Boxcar. One of the early IPD boxcars these and the ACF and PS 5077 were the starters of the Railbox and the early IPD boxcar fleets. This car was painted and lettered for the Green Mountain Railroad Corporation, painted with Floquil SP Daylight Red and Scalecoat II Aluminum and Black Paints, then lettered with Herald King Decals. In the next road any road fleet. After a while due to ICC complaints the large SSI was painted out as the ICC referenced the Billboard Reefer rules regarding painting cars.

    Next up is an Atlas 5000 CF ACF Pressuraide Covered Hopper, Air was used to help completely empty the the contents of the car, there was extra reinforcing to the side and ends. Montana Talc had a small Talc Mine and leased three of these cars to move their product from the mine to processing plants. Car was painted with Scalecoat II UP Hopper Gray and lettered with Islington Station Products decals.

    Thanks for looking!

    Learned to decal this week, it was fun and a lot less intimidating than I first expected. Repainted this train for the local club's railroad.

    Good stuff Candy. Remember it is better to feel like a burger than look like one.

    Great images everybody! The talents on this thread always impresses me.
    First we are looking at the ready tracks, this is where the hostlers take power to, for outbound crews, and where inbound crews leave the power to be taken to the house or pit for servicing.
    This set of MAC's were kitbashed in 1993-94 using RRP SD60M shells/frames stretched, with much cutting, grinding and additions of Cannon and many other parts.

    And here we have a D&RGW freight headed east, behind 4 tunnel motors.
