Love the work! But how did you get the mottled backgrounds, such as the square in the second picture at the top-right?

Kadee 4019, LaSalle & Bureau County.
It was produced that way, as though it was re-stenciled (Kadee called it a "patch-out").
Here's a 'before' pic:

I guess some folks are seeing the same car in both O.P. photos. :LOL:

BTW, the LSBC acquired much of their rolling stock surreptitiously (and in some cases illegally) from Penn Central yards, and quickly re-stenciled them before they could be discovered.

I've only done one Athearn boxcar in graffiti... and I'll never do another one.
Although it came out quite good, I really don't like the look.
I absolutely hate it on prototype cars.

micro-train appears to offer some pretty decent looking one -- although for N.

what they really look like in real-life, no idea. But a little goes a long way.
