Hello Paul. I have a couple of the Rock Islands. I like the gray “rock” load as a fun alternative to the coal loads in the other cars. Like you, I hope they come back around.
Yes indeed. I painted over the limestone rock load with pretty much the same flat color, then applied a grimy-black wash to help accentuate the rocks.
I managed to find 2 single cars a few years ago, so they both have the same road number. I know Lionel also offered a 3-pack in these, hopefully I can find a set of these someday.
They are fantastically detailed. Due to their weight though, I probably would want to run much more than 6~10 or so at the very most. And that's on level track!
