So this is one of a group of passenger cars for the excursion train.  Which represents alot of fallen flags.  This one took some research.  Bellefonte Central stopped passenger service to all but Penn State university.   They never had a steel coach.  Penn State was served by the old wood coach 15.  And heavy traffic (start. and end semester, holidays durning classes) PRR coaches also came into PSU.   In the days before diesel and matching cars, color schemes were different.

Only one (very dark but clear) picture of a freshly painted 15 at the main shops in Coleville is all I had plus a few word caption. saying dark green and yellow.   On the big screen I noticed under the yellow, hard to see was red striping as well.  Similar to pennsy pinstrips. 

Using that, and the fact that The rr would not need anything large, this rivarossi 60' coach would work.  This is the result.   Except the Reading green turned out lighter than I wanted.   Working with that green as a close match to the stripe on the diesels.  Turned out a little lighter. Still very plausable

This coach was an ebay find.  It was painted in that tuscan, with the grey areas  left in a green color. So I painted them grey to look better and clean up the edges of the tuscan color.     It had no name or number.  Buffalo creek name is a creek in the region.  So that worked for a private car.

Just a NVSR coach to show a time long gone.

philo4226 NVSRR,

You both may want to repost these photos on next weekend's Weekend Photo Fun.  I'm not sure how many people will see this in the middle of the week, and you both do nice work.
