Hi everyone,
I posted this on the railroadforums side of the fence too, so you may be seeing it twice, sorry.
Anyway, I recently bought some of Athearn's new Bathtub Coal Gons in the Red CP Rail scheme with the multi mark. I am looking for some photos of the real cars for weathering reference. I know I could just spray 'em black, but I want to be a little more accurate with these.
Thanks in advance for any pics you all can share.


That's a great site Josh, thanks for the link. Not much help for this project unfortunately, but will help with others in the future.

You're welcome. Cataloging all those rail cars is though, and the site has a LONG ways to go...
