Nice!
I dig the late PRR car.

Probably quite a few of those still on the rails looking like all kids of bent and rusted hell by December '85.  You know you wanna...   :D

Craig, you're killing me!
These are some of the finest N scale cars ever but because I model 1950, I can't use any of them. What is the build date on the Wabash car, can't quite read it....
(I do own several small Keystone Pennsy cars from the original run).
Still, nice job on these!

Otto, that Wabash scheme is a Repaint, from the early 1960s.

Oooh, SK gons to dump autoframes into for coming off the PRR/NS interchange.

One of the Lackawanna cars will find its way onto my roster.

Craig has posted photos of the PRR late SK cars on his website.  Repaint/reweigh of P54 4-59.  This is a really nice scheme.  Very balanced lettering arrangement.  Thanks.

The timing of the Sacramento Northern paint is beyond eerie. Unfortunately, I'm also targeting the early 1950's, before the decimation of the south end of the line in 1957. I'm probably going to get one anyway, just for the pure awesome that is RTR Sacramento Northern.

No idea how good these are, but just placed an order for some!

Thank you!  Sounds like I could use any of them for 1974, but I can't afford all of them.  It's the SN for me, simply because I've never seen an SN car in N scale.  Or real life, that I know of...  I suspect their cars made it to Pasco, but I don't remember them.

Awesome looking PRR schemes. Will definitely need a few of these.  Probably the Wabash and 1 or 2 others also.  Nice job Craig!  Keep it up!

The SN, like many other Western Pacific subsidiaries, bought a lot of new rolling stock in the 50's. Basically, it was a way for WP to increase their freight car fleet without spending the money on the cars themselves. As far as range of travel goes, I've seen a photo of a PRR boxcar behind an SN locomotive in Oakland, so anything is possible! The SN's primary customers (at the south end, anyway) were a steel mill in Pittsburg and the Oakland Army Base.
