I have finally finished painting and lettering three freight cars that I have been working on this past week. The cars were stripped of their factory paint, sprayed with a rattle can Jade green and lettered using Microscale decals. I think the cars came out nice and they are now ready for revenue service.
The eight cars that I have custom painted so far. The red caboose is Clinchfield 1064 on loan from the Southeastern Railway Museum for local switching. The caboose is a custom painted Athearn Blue Box car with horns, bells and other features. The car is a replica of the actual CRR 1064 used daily at the S.R.M. The car was painted and lettered by my good friend Sam R. Sam presented this car to me as a gift and it seems to always find itself in the middle of the action.
