    While not the best pics ever, these hoppers still look even kewler in person than in the MR notice where I first saw them. They're club cars from the Thunderbird Model Railroad Club in AZ. Arrived on Friday. They still need some weathering, but I assembled them tonight while playing D&D. Pics are on my work diorama, still at about the same stage as it was last pics I posted of it.

    Actually, looking at it again, that second shot is a really kewl angle, if the lighting just worked better (which isn't easy at this time of night, even here in "the sun never sets in June" Edmonton)......

    WOW!

    Really catchy scheme, this one. You can't miss these cars! :D
    I'm not sure but, wasn't a RR company (Peabody?) that wore a similar paint decoration?
