Here is the reward for the time taken to build this car and putting up with a couple mistakes; or, other problems. This is the last of the stock cars I needed for my layout. Using Acrylic Box Car Red made this car's color look slightly different that the other four Central Valley Model Works stock cars I have, which where painted Oxide Red and more heavily weathered. It may be that this car has been more recently shopped than the other four.

Thanks for following along!

yEAH -- ALTHOUGH the photo (on my computer) does not show good color at all. It looks sort of "bland" - for lack of a better word; however, the culvert passing underneath is a really good touch.
How about an outside photo in natural light - err, sorry, I sort of overlooked the -40 temp? is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
