Here's a few hopper ideas. Note the spray painted marks where repairs are needed.

Nice, never seen that before, although it is unnerving to see a box car with "flammble" placards and a wheel with "Broken" sprayed on it...

A bunch of shots I've taken over the last few months...

1: A CN over Conrail boxcar with Penn Central fading through on the top.
2: A white tanker with an overall dirty look to it. I love those two grey "splashes" on the bottom.
3: HPJX over UP.
4: Sabine River & Northern ex-Marinette Tomahawk & Western boxcar. Athearn makes a regular MT&W boxcar that you could start with. I believe a very similar car was the subject of a contest on the Railwire a while back.

1: I love the stark contrast of the rust on this one.
2: A neat looking airslide hopper painted for GATX but with SOO reporting marks.
3: Southern hopper. You can never have enough of these.
4: A TIMX molten sulphur tankcar with yellow streaks down the side.
