Cool beans.  That's a tough find and was the first ESM 3500pd to sell out, from what I remember.  It seemed to become more popular/in-demand after it was gone.  Incredible to realize that was over 20 years ago.

Looks like 6 are left.  Anyone who wants one better grab one from this group.  That's a great price and they don't surface very often.  It is by far the most difficult ESM 3500pd to find.

The guy has some interesting stuff.  PC fans might take notice.

3 PC painted Bowser N5 cabins -->> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Set-3-Bowser-37122-Penn-Central-cabooses-/161919268168?hash=item25b323f548

Lots of New Old Stock Atlas and Kato  PRR/PC locos.  A lot of Con-Cor.

Three Key brass PRR cabins - N8, N5c undecorated and an N5c painted.  At $125-135 a little steep for me.

Three PSC brass N5A/B cabins and a PSC N8. Also $125-135

There were some other things, but they're gone now.  :trollface:

I almost pulled the trigger on that N8. The GP38 would be a fun painting project too.

Bryan B:   Do you recall the type of paint used to finish the PC Flexi-flo?  I’m detailing mine a bit (it’s been a long time…) and want to match the existing as closely as possible without a lot of finagling.   Many Thanks, Harry

BTW - thanks so much, Unittrain, for putting us onto this very-hard-to-find scheme. HH

Harry @Snark45 — Accurail painted and decorated the cars and, from what I remember, the gray used was their Southern Pacific light gray — or rather, the light gray used on their Southern Pacific covered hoppers.  At the time.  Keep in mind that this was over 25 years ago and that Accurail's paint and formulations have changed since then, changed more than once most likely.  Your best option at this point is to start with the "covered hopper light gray" of your choice, test patch underneath the bottom of the car, and add black or white to the paint mix to adjust.

Thanks a lot, Bryan

Just a "Hail Mary" given the 25-year time lapse...   Best Regards, Harry

Keep Shovellin'...
