Additional cars worked on while the summer heat makes outside work difficult. I saw the inspiration for these cars stored on a siding in near the harbor in Bellingham, WA. The real cars were almost totally black so I toned it down a bit.
I love the Exactrail covered hoppers. Even though they were built in the late 70s, I am including 2 on my road. Weathered but not rust buckets or faded hulks.
