Yes, excellent work as always. Can I assume that these are spoken for? If not, I would be interested on one, unpainted.

Just curious, why unpainted? The CB&Q ONLY painted those waycars silver/aluminum. Plus, they are specific to the CB&Q as no other railroad had waycars/cabooses EXACTLY like these (the Wabash cars were  different).  

I've been painting my models for well over 55 years and really enjoy it. I'm a Burlington modeler, belong to the Burlington Route Historical Society, have written articles for the BRHS on painting and kitbashing and help edit several books on the Burlington Route. I also collect Q memorabilia from china, time tables, calendars to lanterns. I have 14 lanterns.

So if Brother Love have any of these available for sale, I would love one to custom paint and add to my collection of Q models.

Well, not quite. 

The first batch of NE12's were painted MOW orange, until the brass saw them.  Then of course, there's the ones repainted BN.

Hi Brother Love:

I want to buy one of your NE-12 waycars in 3-rail O-gauge decorated as CB&Q #13572 in the silver paint with horizontal red stripe.  The prototype #13572 is preserved & operates at Illinois Railway Museum in Union, IL.  

If you have a second one available, then please prepare it in 3-rail O-gauge in the MOW orange paint.  I will look into Randy Danielle's CB&Q Waycar  book to see what road numbers were prototypical to that scheme. 

Please contact me off-list with details.  My e-mail is in my profile.  

Thanks in advance !!!

BL, there is a kit in HO, that l would like in O, if existed, on the Bay, that you might want to build in O for your own collection/ layout, as maybe related to your modeled region.  It is a Southern RR tobacco hogshead car.  I am going to have to see pictures of the prototype.  It looks like a car the guy heading the Strasburg O show would offer in brass...

 

Here are some pictures of Malcolm’s latest creation on the Rockford O Scalers layout.  Beautiful work, of course!209DD6FC-9B3F-441D-8D84-DA0DAA3354B427250ED0-46B9-48F1-AAAD-1F8EB0EC15CFECAE6907-D5C6-4239-895F-33D6FBA5A3031E4F1CE6-F9A5-45F2-BF0F-EE6AF4CBB9EB
