    I wonder if you'll do private owner cars?
    there's some that'll probably require some 3d modeling work like 6 bay cylindrical hoppers, etc.

    Anyway..B&O, C&O, Chessie System, CSXT, and P&LE hoppers have been uploaded. Im still redoing the NS ones and will be finishing the L&N and Seaboard System ones in the immediate future.
    What about doing an SCL/L&N Family Lines hopper with those Seaboard System hopper cars? A few of those can still be found today

    Steve, I have not ever seen any pictures of a 100t 3 bay painted in Family Lines paint, however I did do those on the 70t shape along with some Seaboard System ones. There was many of the BSC 4 bays in those schemes but I opted not to do those as they were already done by SLI in the CSX C40-8/SD60 coal train pack.

    The included (partial) shot of WSOX 6653 was a complete repaint of the car as UMPX 6653, without the Upper Merion & Plymouth banner. Several of these cars were re-marked to WSOX shortly before they left the southern Illinois coal fields in mid 1988.

    Just a sampling of the numbers I've been able to confirm that wore UMPX marks are 6197, 6453, 6511, 6523, 6560, 6618, 6653, 6701, 6702, 6919, 7100, 7101, 7102, 7109. The July 1985 ORER shows cars in series 6215-6578 and 6600-7557.

    Unfortunately, it does not look like I ever centered one of these cars as the primary subject in my viewfinder.

    Maine Central cars are H350, 3418 Dry Capacity. Not sure if that makes much difference with these cars you are producing. I don't even remember or recall if they are 100ton or 70ton.
    Here is what they use to look like with their patch jobs.

    And current looks with a full repaint, relettering, and metal work redone.

    Another one before the repaint process.

    D&H Ex Reading car, also an H350
    http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/sho...spx?id=4570565

    I *think* this one is a 70ton, and I do believe these became B&M lettered eventually.
    http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/sho...aspx?id=790507

    Also H350, for B&M. Though compared to the car in front, I think these H350's are 70 tons. I honestly am not too sure. I never really got into the major differences with anything other than boxcars.

    Next up...Ive always wanted to do a set of Pennsylvania Power & Light Hoppers (easily the most complicated hopper paint ive done). Originally built by Bethlehem Steel Co in the mid 1960s-mid 1970s, PPLX unit coal trains have been a staple across the northeast. Ive done the cars in the original "Reddy Kilowatt" paint schemes as well as the more modern rotary and double rotary cars. These are suitable for anywhere from late PRR days to even more recent NS operations.

    "Reddy Kilowatt" in white

    Rotary Black


    Double Rotary Black and some old warriors

    I remember seeing some of these during the mid 1970's on BN coal trains hauling coal from Wyoming to the Midwest. Most likely they were being leased at that time. From what I remember, the entire train was PPLX cars.
