I like it too. 

Will you be adding window glazing?

Yes I will. The clear glazing is partially in, the arched windows and opera window are a bit of a challenge...
Not that anyone would notice on an N scale model...

Will it have interior lighting?  If not, you could just print copies of the stained glass and glue them on.

Gallery Glass works if you could live with one color.

Design the stain glass windows on your computer and print them on an ink jet transparency, then glue them inside the shell.

If you could get a straight on photo of both, you could scale it an laser print the stained glass and the clear glass on a transparency and do the entire side at once.

Here is one I did for a set of window mullions:

Thanks guys, all good ideas. I did try Gallery Glass on the back side clerestory windows and can't say I like it...it did not dry flat enough for my taste. I'll experiment, but first need to get my dead PC fixed...

Adam, looks like you're screwed...we don't know what color it was in '47 :D
Or perhaps that's an advantage...
Otto

Adam, it turns out Chard Walker's original book, Railroading through Cajon Pass notes the car was dark green when first moved to Summit in 1940, but "it was soon painted gray with black roof" sic. So there's your answer...
