See RJ, there is alot you don't know about me. I used to ride my bike up to the C&NW yards in CB ,IA along Ave G.
got run out a few times.
Now of course this needs to be weathered very heavy beings its a , "fallen Flag".
This is the road name I had asked for in the beginning and even prepaid for. way back.
Your just alright..
Man ,look how the dark rusty brown has fadded into pink on the rails.
The ones from the show last year work great but I did replace the couplers with Kadee 789 since i run some 10" curves. I also removed the brake shoes as they create some drag. I love the cars I wish the Rock Island car was the gray with black lettering.
Since I model primarily the Rock Island I could use several of these hoppers.
