Since I couldn't find a RioGrande Pullman, a UP Pullman was repainted to go with my RG heavyweights. It still needs a few details, but overall, I think it looks passable.
The "union Pacific" markings and red stripe across the top were removed with laquer thinner and a shop towel.



The combine on the right is original RG production.

I'd say you did more than an attempt Jim! Everything that you have done with this Rio Grande consist, both inside and out, has been inspiring! (I got to see Jim's project at our last club meeting and it is even more impressive in person!)

Nice job Jim. It's one way to get the cars in the RR markings you like. Later RJD

All,
Thanks for the words of encouragement.


Pictures of people in the Pullman.

Today I started converting the lighting from track power to MUd battery power using warm white LEDs and a Bridge Rectifier.

The work on the Pullman was finished and the car was entered into service.

Today, I started converting the Doodlebug into a WWII Hospital car. My father spent much of WWII working on hospital trails running between San Francisco and NYC.
