    The C&HV car is lettered for my C&HV using a Accurail 5999 "data only" 50 foot boxcar kit.
    The R&MC is a special run car..The R&MC was a short line on Tony Koester's Allegheny Midland..This road uses Railroad Model Craftsmen initials because Tony was a Editor of RMC at one time.This was a MDC kit.The other two are Athearn RTR cars.

    Good-lookin' cars, Larry. I like the CHV one the best, as, except for the shortened ladders and missing roofwalk, it could fit into my era. Are you planning on weathering them?

    Brakie, here is a car I picked up for cheap off the consignment rack at the LHS. It doesn't have any data on it, and it may not be prototypical, but I like it.
