Reply to "What Have You 3-Rail Scaled Lately?? Please Contribute to this Thread!!"

 Just added another car to my growing fleet of my rendition of the Rutland. Base car is a 40ft. Weaver. Removing the claw and 2 chassis ribs for wheel clearance lowers the car. The deck was gouged up and then painted with Scalecoat Grime #1. Then a light wash of grimy black was applied. Stirrups from Scale City, Atlas grab irons, and a brass brake wheel mounted to a brass rod was added. Lettering is from Protocraft. I looked for a Weaver car that I could use the stock data as far as weights and capacity. The car lettering is actually centered on the car where as by the design of the prototype Rutland it wasn't. The Weaver's stake pockets aren't the same. Car was lightly for me anyways weathered. The tractors I picked up at a recent show with this project in mind.
