  • LV cabooses

    Here are 4 P2K cabooses I've done in Lehigh Valley paint schemes.

    Nice work. Let me guess, LV fan? What section of the LV are you modeling?

      Thank you, Bernd. Yes, I model the LV. Actually, I model the railroads of Wilkes-Barre, Pa because that is where I grew up near. There were 4 rrs there- LV, D&H, CNJ and the PRR (later PC of course). I also like, to a lesser extent, the RDG and EL. I do not have a layout, but I would model the yards that were in Wilkes-Barre.

    Frankie~,
    I like the variety and slight color tone changes of each, but the green one is my fav. Will, there be any weathering on these? After all, they weren't called crummies for nothing!
    Thanx Thom...

      Thank you, Thom. I do not plan on weathering these soon because I have a ton of other kits to build and paint. So, they won't be crummy crummies for a while.

    Good job. The variations in color and lettering tell a story. Typical LV.

    Nice work on your cabooses. I'm not familiar with Lehigh Valley paint schemes, so my question is, did they change to green, or the red scheme? Or, run both colors?

      Thank you, Louis. The LV painted their cabooses with whatever paint they had on hand. I believe that the red with yellow stripe was the last scheme. As for the green scheme, it goes like this: The PRR had a controlling interest in the LV and that changed with the Penn Central merger. About 14 cabooses were painted in the PC green scheme as a result.

    I think the green came as they were getting closer to being swallowed by Penn Central in 1976.

      Nice crisp work. As others have said, the slight colour variation is a realistic approach to the painting. and having the green one just adds some further interest.
      Excellent

        Thank you, Rob. Great picture- I saved it to my LV pic roster. It may come in handy for future projects.
