Nothin’ Says Lovin’

Always had one of these on my To Do List. Former Pillsbury cylindrical grain hoppers, now belonging to the SOO Railroad, and having years of weathering. The original cornflower blue color is now faded and the rust streaking has given it a very subtle violet tone. This particular model was a kit, and many days were spent between the assembly and painting.

Spokane International Flatcar

Filed under: General — admin @ 6:55 AM

I added some resin cast tarped machinery loads which I hand-painted.
