Weathering and wood chips

Rail joiners arrived today, but not until late, so I didn't get much track down.  I spent most of my time today at the bench.  I weathered this CSX hopper using oils, chalks, and decals.

I started my wood chip hopper project with this Kadee box car. 

I did it the way the BAR did, I cut off the roof....

....and added extension plates and cross braces.

Ready for paint

Painted and loaded.  Waiting on Highball decals to weather and finish.

If anyone has a couple Atlas GP38s in the Bangor & Aroostook red, black, and grey paint that they would be willing to sell, drop me a message at
