    That boxcar is ( imho ) a perfect example of a weathered boxcar. I even made it my desktop background.
    It has everything, but not overdone.
    I won't challenge DocWayne to replicate it because I'm sure that given a few weeks ( or months ) DocWayne will come with a perfect replica of it.
    just my Canadian $ 0.0198 ( $ 0.02 US )

    Hmmm. Odd that you should post this, as I have been contemplating doing another D&H boxcar. However, the one in your photo is just a bit too modern for my layout.:D Nice picture, though. :thumb:

    Maybe it includes me. I have never weathered rolling stock though. But Ive gotten some locomotives very very dirty. I'll show em to you one of these days when I get a good camera. I need to start buying rolling stock. Any ideas? And yeah, mother nature makes some beautiful art on them boxcars. Better looking than all that grafitti:thumb:
