I took this one when we were doing the A through Z thing. I thought it
would be good for the Q but decided to use the Susie-Q (Susquehanna) boxcar instead.
 
 
Keep the boxcars coming. Should be lots to choose from.

A little more modern tank car for you!

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

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!

How about both! Plenty of rust and grime on any northeastern railroad, the B&CCS included, in the late 70s and early 80s! A big part of why I model the era is because I enjoy the weathering process so much!

 

More heavy weathering of any kind please!

I don't do heavy weathering so I couldn't play that game. I have lots of
boxcars with slogans. This is my favorite slogan.
