It is decals but done well. I think my Royal Blue is the only B&O engine I have.
I do have a C&O passenger train. I already had a B&O Lionel bay window caboose.
So I did not need the custom but one of them can sit on a siding. I do like the custom.
It was only $11 something. Someday I will paint 2 or 3 red or green AF passenger cars
royal blue and use the Royal Blue engine for what it looks like it should be. I was born in
West Virginia but moved away young but going back to see my grandparents I saw B&O
and C&O trains. No B&O in Missouri. I have lived in many states. Mainly in the midwest
from Michigan down to Texas.

If you are going to paint passenger cars blue the easiest cars to paint are the silver bullet cars. The hardest are the Bakelite heavyweights and the unpainted plastic 650's. It takes some special prep work to add tooth to the plastic for the paint to stick. The painted 650's are like the silver bullets, but I think all the painted versions (different plastic than the unpainted) came with sheet metal chassis, no steps.
