Looks like it'd be a cool model.

I'd expect MT to jump all over this and increase its profit margin by taking Tom out of the pic as middle man, and start a commercially-sanctioned holiday graf series.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I want a B&O boxcar with a 15 star/15 stripe flag and a big portrait of Gen. Armistead, with the tag reading "Happy Defenders Day!"  The opposite side of the car would have the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner.

I want one "HAPPY FOUNDER"S DAY" or maybe it was "DEFENDER'S DAY" ::)

(MVA used to be closed on this well known holiday)

MK4D has the waffle car, and it would be perfect for this project.

Interesting the shop simply overpainted the reporting # rather than black out the box for doing so.

Was it the shop that repainted the number, or the vandal? Some of them have learned that their "art" will remain longer if they don't obliterate the legally-mandated information on the car.

What if they painted the wrong road number?
