Cool, so when can we start talking about the CGW 6000 series again?  :)

Are you planning any gray WM stone hoppers?

Lee,

I remembered this being asked before:

I'm afraid not. The WM stone service cars were 12-panel 100 ton cars. There is another (simpler) version of speed-letter brown applicable our car plus WM - Chessie but it will probably be a while before we would announce those.

For you Conrail and Penn Central modelers: the 12 Penn Central H37G road numbers that Craig modeled here were never restenciled Conrail (had PC painted out and replaced with CR).  I know this because I either photographed or documented each car number that Bluford shops used for these cars.  They lasted in full PC paint until they were scrapped in the early 90's.  I am going to order all 12 cars for inclusion in my Conrail coal trains when I am done typing here.  Thank you.

Hey Jeff, when you get your PC cars, be sure to read the labels. There's a special surprise for you!

Lee,

I remembered this being asked before:

Let me do some looking... I believe they ran some smaller cars to pilot the service in the early 60's before they committed to buy the 100 ton cars...
Barring that, are there any schemes you're planning that would be gray?  The Laurel Valley might be in the market for some stone cars...  :lol:

Oh, we don't have to wait for another run of GRAY cars, just another run of ANY 14-panel hoppers to do a gray Laurel Valley run similar to what we did with the black cars.
