Newly Painted Cars Coming For The NYC & PC

Greetings Blog Followers,

After mulling this over for a few weeks I have decided to repaint six AHM Penn Central 40' boxcars. The cars had previously been upgraded with body mounted Kadee couplers, metal wheels and additional weight. They run and perform well but since I began my repaint program they quite frankly no longer look so good to me. That said it was either relegate them to a life of infrequent use and much shelf time or repaint them and have them for everyday revenue service.

Here is a sample of the cars to be repainted. 


 Here are pictures of the first car repainted and lettered
 


Weather and time permitting the remaining five will be ready for service very shortly. The cars have been painted and are ready for decals.
