I like this one:  One of the unique things about this car is the difference between the B and the A side of the car.

that is new for me because I always thought that the cars are weathered identically on both sides !!   :D :D



Stay cool, piss off your distributors and retailers and sell Factory Direct.....   8) 8)

Anyone for an automatic butt-wiping machine?? This is the "buy it, don't build it" attitude carried to its extreme conclusion.

Run your cars weathered by someone else on your railroad built by someone else pulled by a store-bought locomotive. Have it operate on a computer program written by someone else and call yourself a model railroader.  :o

Maybe I should take up underwater basket-weaving.   :P

Wow.   :o  Just when you thought it couldn't get any more rtr. . . . .  The ACF 70T hopper they show in the link CAN be worked into a good looking model, but not by slapping a weathering job on the stock model.

Oh wait, let's see . . . . . . . Nope, it's not April yet.   ;)

I'll never buy pre-weathered but apparently there is a market for such. ::)

Well you know if PWRS picked up the entire run of DRGW hoppers - DI must really have found something there  ::)
