The Prototype of "Ghost" Lettered Trailers         

By Chris Palomarez                     


As Railroads evolve, some of their equipment becomes pretty weathered. Most may think of freight cars and locomotives as the main subject for this effect. But there is much more equipment out there that doesn't always age well! In this case some former railroad owned trailers that have been outclassed or outright sold to other owners, then, finds itself quietly weathering away or subtly revealing it's previous owner. As the vinyl lettering is pealed back, a reverse "ghost" image is revealed. As a basis for duplicating this effect, Microscale is launching a new decal set to simulate this type of weathering. Three scales will be offered for this particular set: HO 87-1462, N 60-1462, and O 48-1462.
