Back by popular demand

Over the years we have created a vast collection of decal sets that often fall out of demand or popularity. Like all things, what was hot is not...and what is not is now hot!


Here are just a few decal sheets we have reprinted just in time for the holidays!

McCloud River ex Sierra 50' Offset Double Door Boxcar    

Model By Christopher Palomarez           


When I saw the announcement for the new Plate B 5077 Double Door Boxcars from Atlas (http://www.atlasrr.com/HOFreight/ho5077boxcar1.htm) I was inspired to take another look at some of my older projects. One of my favorites is this car. This car was originally leased from SSI to the Sierra Railroad; it appears that the McCloud River RR later absorbed this car into their fleet. The car depicted started off as an MDC with a lot of attention paid to the weathering and improving the underframe. If I ever do this car again I for certain would start with the new Atlas Undec 5077 Offset Double Door (Part #20 001 534). 87-1294 SSI Plate B Leasing Boxcars covers the majority of this car. On that set is also includes lettering and heralds for the AHW, Atlanta & St. Andrews Bay, Green Mountain Ry, Hartford & Slocomb and the Vermont Ry. I used 87-2 Gothic Data for some of the capacity data and ACI Label, MC-5012 Wheel Inspection Dots then MC-5003 for the COTS panels
