    I'm building an older Central Valley stock car kit and I'm planning on decorating it in Canadian national. Does anyone have a picture of either a prototype or Model CNR stock car so I know the location of data boards ect?

    Thanks my car looks closest to the last two pictures. I didn't realize that the white went so far up the side so I'll take that into account when I paint mine.

    That's because most railroads 'limed' the cars after use for sanitation. It stained the wood white anyway so CN and a few American railroad did the same.
