Oooh, CN hawtness and I have a few on reserve.  What's with the windows though, it it me or is that a bit funky?

Are the last two photos meant to indicate a magnetic switching for an internal light?  Loving the marker lights!

The windows are flush on these vans if my memory serves me correctly.  I think he will be printing the silver frame around the outside of the clear parts and then insert them into the wells on the side of the car.  If the printing is done well, this van will be mind blowing.

Typical Jason Shron detail freakishness...... Rapido is indeed producing this and it will set a new standard for detail... I have a few on order and look forward to not only these, but the Angus shops CP Rail van that will follow.....
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Makes me want to move to Canada.
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.

Sneek / Sneek Peak Prairie Shadows Bulkhead - Its a Canadian prototype, Hawker - Siddeley 52'8" bulkhead flat. Done in Horribly Oversized by Trueline and Walthers. Not on Jeff's website yet.

Introduced in 1972, the prototype Canadian 50' Bulkhead Flat Cars quickly became favorites of the lumber industry. Built by Hawker-Siddeley, the cars were large for the era, offering a loading area of 52'8" between the bulkheads. Distinctive, chunky end bulkheads on the cars helped keep lumber bundles from sliding off the ends of the car - a common problem with non-bulkhead cars. When constructed, the cars were used to haul finished lumber from Canadian sawmills, but today are used in all kinds of service including steel, wallboard and logs, in addition to lumber.

I've all 12 on order and I didn't expect to be disappointed... and I'm not. Those look awesome! Waiting for them patiently, and like Pud, the Angus goodness to follow... CP and a few TH&B, please.

Are you kidding! HS 52' bulkheads are coming, too?!? Oh man, this year is already looking great  :)
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.
