Not a whole lot going on with the layout this past week. However, I couldn't help but notice this string of Railbox cars moving along the GTW. I actually thought this photo would turn out a bit bigger than this, and give a better view of the train. Using Paintshop, I have cropped out everything below the layout, so that's the reason it's turned out this way.
A short JSSX train made up of two tank cars and an empty gondola is also visible switching in the foreground.
The first boxcar in the GTW train is RBOX 1505.I have recently sort of begun a program of adding the FRA reflective stripes to many of my freight cars. The ones I've put on this RBOX are the peel and stick type produced by Smokebox Graphics.
I don't know how many individual strips there are on a sheet, but it's certainly quite a few, and the package only costs about 5 bucks! The label says there are enough to do 40 cars.
My favorite boxcar paint scheme! I have four of them and run them sometimes as a block on my layout just because I think they look so good. Nice job with yours!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I didn't realize that I had quite so many RBOX's until a couple of months ago. Plus a couple of TBOX's and FBOX's as well. And my 86 foot JBOX to boot.ReplyDelete
I like that shot :)ReplyDelete
