Conrail Historical Society 21165 Caboose Update!!!

Hi All,
Big news coming out of the CRHS! Our bay window caboose, CR 21165, is almost done with our paint contractor! The black paint is still to be done, but we've come a long way! Here's a few photos:

249CFR, Part 3345, S/S 23 EdsLaw states:

Model railcars are to be weathered as no real railroad cars are ever shiney.

Wrong CFR - transportation regs are 49. So the correct reference would 49 CFR 3346 et seq.
