Now to sell all my n-scale and invest in those Z MT state cars.

Lordy, lordy, the Cadiz Railroad has been gone a long time...and so have its cars. The fellow who was the GM, White was his surname, attended Short Line meetings for years after the railroad closed.

Went over to 4nscale to look at the pictures. I see the CN car is the one of a kind, special printing on 1 side only car. Wonder if the other side is a plain CN scheme like it should be or if they did the same thing to both sides? For that matter, for those rivet counters out there, did they put the special scheme on the correct side of the boxcar?

Cadiz sounds like an MTL reaction to FVM's upcoming release - which of course is on the correct car.

The decal was made by taking a scan of a photo of the car, using photoshop to crop, clean up and fix the image and then it was run on a HP G55 printer in 1200 dpi photo image setting (inkjet) and sealed. I've had very good luck with the G55 over the years.
