From heralds to paint jobs
From billboards to colors and lettering.


We all have our favorite sweetheart eye candy... from period to contemporary.

Boxcars, hoppers, reefers, cabooses, whatever.
I have numerous favorites. Can't possibly list or show them all (e.g., the vermilion Great Northern PS3's, and the early billboard reefers).

When it comes to box cars I tend to be attracted to the old wooden platforms. Anything with the C&O / Pere Marquette, or Santa Fe.
Hoppers 2 bays seems to be my thing! Filled with coal. C&O ,or B&O.
Flat cars need to be the old wooden deck Santa Fe.....
tankers are the old single dome , hooker tankers I like the orange! Lol
Caboose.... I like anything red! I have a soft spot for my little C&O I put together

For me it's billboard reefers hands down, particularly the beer and wine cars. Seayakbill's got a mail train I think is pretty sharp, and MTL's state cars are little rolling works of art.

D&H had a blue and white "I (heart) NY box car that I thought was very cool. I'm originally from New York so I admit to being biased.

It's just an idle suggestion. Sell off some or all of the lesser lines and upgrade to better using the proceeds. I've done that at least in a minimal with some of my o scale stuff.
