    Nice work Tom! I very much like that feather logo. Is that a row of small feathers along the side?

    Looks like a great addition to your freight car fleet.

    Yes Jim that is a small row of feathers. I actually did not notice them until I started weathering the car.

    BTW Thanks for the compliment.

    Tom,

    Great job, as usual. I always appreciate your list of materials, your approach is worthy of a book on the subject.
