Another two-toned (or more) boxcar please.

Here is one for the "or more" category. For 1954 the TEHACHAPI APACHE AND HUALAPAI is certainly amongst the most colorful boxcars on Earth!

For boxcars on my late-'30s era layout, these modified Dominion/Fowler cars from Accurail are about as colourful as you'll see...

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!
