The ROCK 3.0: Paint Shop Plans

So, the crew at the Paint Shop is lining up more work.  They have found something else they are interested in painting.

I will use an Atlas PS-2 2-Bay Covered Hopper.  It is missing a rib in the middle, but has the space of two columns of letters.  I will add a small piece of styrene, paint flat black and decal.  

So many projects, so little time.

The ROCK 3.0: Paint Shop Update

An EMD GP7 Non-Dynamic brake unit was spotted going into the Paint Shop today.  It has been disassembled and cleaned.  Rumor has it that it will become Peoria & Eastern #5628 Ex-Penn Central.

It will look similar to this.

We're hoping to catch some photos of the newly painted unit in the next few days.

The ROCK 3.0: More CPC International

Another CPC International Tank rolled out of the paint shop today.  I *really* like these tank cars!  Now, to figure out how to model CPC International in Peoria.  :-)
