    I have 2 more cars to complete from the C&O Railroad. I have been one confused female as if I was shopping for shoes. I found 7 variations for the basic Chessie paint scheme.

    Blue with the Yellow door
    Blue with the Silver door
    Yellow with the Blue door
    Blue with Large Chessie Emblem
    Blue with Small Chessie Emblem
    Blue with standard B&O / C&O / WM Markings
    And basic Brown.

    This doesn't even include the smaller markings that seem to be plastered anywhere. Such as car dimensions, plate C, car reader, and ownership bank details. Some cars were owned by a bank in Chicago some in Baltimore. I found doing the B&O the easiest and the WM and C&O the most confusing due to the fact WM information is pretty thin about cars, especially box cars. once i get the last cars done I will post the pictures of the C&O cars.

    BTW i did these for all you B&O C&O WM fans cause you need more love than the BNSF NS UP gangs.

    And here we are. I finished the painting now it's just the editing and off to the test team to see what they find.

    And I found out the yellow cars are meant to be refrigerated.

    I'll take all of them! These are seriously good repaints and something sorely lacking in my personal opinion.. Great job!

    FYI: the CHESSIE font "CHESCAT" has been revised to include C&O B&O ane WM reporting marks for diesel and freight items.

    I finished all the cars and made some corrections to them and found the original car I based them off 50ft_BOX_CVC402720. FYI it can be found in the SLI_CN_ FREIGHT folder. I also added the roof freight animation, and made sure the car air hoses are no longer blue. I am just doing the write up for them and they should be in the library tomorrow I hope.

    Cars were uploaded to the Library this afternoon. I did manage to locate the SLI set the car is in. You need the Canadian National _VOL2 trainset. I know SLI reuses models so I am sure somewhere there is another S file that will match.

    Hi Michelle
    I didn't have the shape file you recommended so I tried it on a UP 50ft boxcar from the FRC set.. It looks OK to my old eyes but I'm not a rivet counter..
