Thanks, I saw something similar to this at the railroader's muesum in Altoona years ago and am hoping I can do it justice. Yeah, Shay does get it. He sent me a box of N gauge goodies and they're a big help to this little project.

Well, I stopped being lazy and got back to work on it. Painted it up a little bit but, I'm not happy with the blue. It's too dark and doesn't show up against the flat black of the roof and walk ways. Also added pics of the caboose I'm converting into a home/workshop.

Dul-Cote? Sorry, don't know what it is. I was trying for a Con-Rail Blue type color. This is way too dark for that. Thanks for looking.

I'll have to see if I can get some after my unemployment gets here. Anyone know where to get tiny dry transfer lettering? I need some for this crew car and probably for some of my custom vehicles.

You'll want to get those from a good hobby supplier...dry transfers get harder to apply as they get older so you'll want fresh ones.

Here we go. I got out the blue and flat white and started mixing until I got the color I wanted. The camera makes the color a little green looking but, it's actually really close to Con-Rail blue. So I'm happy with it. Now I just need to find a good used steam loco to pull my wreck train.

Nice job Rob.
The color looks close to the B&M colors.

It's for my own rail road. I'm not trying to replicate any certain road. I just reall like that shade of blue. What road was B&M? I don't know most of the roads. I'm glad you liked it.
