    I know.....I'm late...as always.
    But there was a neat little detail on the first pic that could be modeled.
    Looks like that car was originally lettered for Conrail(CR). They blocked out the "R", and stenciled "NY" in front of the "C".
    Just a neat little thing that wouldn't be hard to model.
