 Welcome Everyone!

Kevin .... Thanks . I used shredded paper from the shredder. Colored it to look like rust. Then brushed streaks of silver paint on it. 

Back to the request.... A steam locomotive of an eastern railroad. (NYC, PRR, B&O, Erie, CNJ, Reading, etc. )  .... I know there are some in this forum based on what is in Weekend Photo Fun sometimes.

I built this locomotive for a friend, from a brass model of a USRA 2-10-2....

...just like the 10 prototypes which the CNR built from 10 USRA 2-10-2s, acquired second-hand, from the Boston & Albany, after the latter road received their first Berkshires.

When I got this Atlas (Branchline) reefer kit (along with another very similar car) free, from my LHS, both were billboard beer reefers.  However, since my layout is set in the late '30s, after such cars had been outlawed, it seemed a good idea to make it something a little more appropriate to the era, as I had a suitable lettering set on-hand...

The original lettering wipe-off easily from both cars, and with no other decal sets on-hand, I lettered the second one, using dry transfers, for my home road's Grand Valley Export Ltd.....

As you can see, neither car has yet received the second grabiron, on the side, near the left end, mandated in the mid-'30s.

Wayne

Show me more reefers, billboard or otherwise, please.
