    Those look like McHenry couplers, designed to work with either horn-hook or knuckle couplers.

    The car has archbar trucks, which suggests it was used before the 1930s. Does it say BLT 7-06 on the side? It's a little hard to tell.

    Yes it does say BLT 7-06 on the side (it is a little hard to tell isn't it)

    Here is a freight train that I put together with the 10 new freight cars I just recieved in the mailbounce7. The CSX car is just there to show the differnce between weathered and none weathered on the Airlside hoppers.

    The last two 5-bay hoppers:

    Im not sure what the weathering effect the person who did the job was going for but it didn't look very appealing to me. Ill have to fix em up as you will see in the next train:D :)

    Here is a Coal Train that I put together. I has just left the New River Mining Company and is on the mainline going to the Coke Ovens.

    I realize that this is not going to look very realistic with only 1 Dash 8-40B but this is the only engine I have at the moment so it will have to do. Luckly there are no hills on the way to the ovens.sign1

    Those are looking good so far. I kinda think you need to re-weather those ligher KW cars, as the previous owner's weathering looks kinda like crap. Gotta give em credit for trying though. You definitely need to aquire another loco, perhaps a BN or an SF, or both, to go with the BNSF

    Ya I was thinking the same thing when I saw them on ebay but I just could not pass them up. I just got a DVD on weathering that my grandfather bought me and I learned how to drybrush and chalk weather so I am going to combine all 3 wethering techniques I no all in one.

    I am bidding on 2 UP AC4400 and 1 SP AC4400 on ebay right now, hopfully I win them cause I really do need some more engines!!!
