You have plenty to work on! Here are a few suggestions... Linglestown, Buck Run, Commonwealth, hopper cars.

Man, rough crowd....LOL


Chuck, unfortunately the $800 "investment proposal" that I presented to the Capital Improvement Committee (Mrs. Harsco) was rather spectacularly shot down in flames; I think the exact wording was: "Whaaattttt???".

I did promise to look for a lower cost alternative and after investing a mere $1.49 in a White Out Pen and less than five minutes per side, came up with an alternative:

I figure the Harrisburg Terminal Railroad "HTRX" markings would neatly sidestep any copyright issues.....LOL.

Like the $1.49 results which are very close to the typical rattle can used by the mill car shop to paint the number and reporting marks.

Makes a lot of sense to me, Rick. That is a big cash outlay. If you decide to go the decal route later, let me know.

Well I have to agree with Rick. That is a major cash outlay. That car looks great Rick! But I wonder; would a company like Harsco have these cars, even 'spray painted', for inbound loads of scrap? I would assume if they owned cars (and I wonder how many steel mills actually owned revenue service cars), wouldn't they be more for outbound shipments rather than inbound loads?

God help me for saying this, Joe...but that actually sounds like....no, I can't go through with it!

Actually, no they wouldn't, one of the many reasons why I was a little reluctant to go whole hog on the concept. The only reason why the gondola in the picture even has the "HTRX" reporting marks is because it's an undecorated and very poorly running Con-Cor I bought years ago to bulk up the roster. Typically, steel mills didn't have their own dedicated gons in common carrier service, since scrap tends to come from a wide variety of sources. Inter-plant gons usually didn't have air brakes and couldn't leave the plant (for obvious reasons).

Thanks, Chuck...now that I have the craft paint airbrushing thing figured out, the decal route makes far more sense....
