That actually has promise. Not the paint scheme, but the basic car looks good.

The model does look pretty good..

She sent a pic of a Fire Truck on Flat car too.. The Fire Truck looked good.. flat car was pretty basic..

It looks like it would be easy to change the road number.  Just use any random set of white numbers, and apply them sort of close to location.  Even I could get it closer than that!   :facepalm:

Now you don't have to choose between modeling the PRR or NS. Behold this monstrosity: https://www.menards.com/main/grocery-home/menards-collectibles/train-stuff-from-menards/train-stuff/o-gauge-pennsylvania-covered-hopper-car/2794568/p-1521613895146-c-13318.htm [ Guests cannot view attachments ]
