HO Scale Freight Cars with Graffiti and some Weathering
On this page, I am going to present some of my special freight cars for my layout (not for sale).
Auf dieser Seite präsentiere ich ein paar spezielle Güterwagen für meine Anlage (unverkäuflich).


A) Jumbo size Graffiti on a 64' Reefer (from real thing to an HO model)
During my June 2011 Cajon Pass visit, I was able to catch this ARMN 64' Reefer in an Union Pacific NB train passing Hill 582 on the Colton-Palmdale cutoff. I was really impressed with this huge graffiti of a monkey drinking water.
There are many cars with graffiti on this train - take a look - click here
The left graffiti with the green monsters have been applied to a BLMA 64' Reefer
The picture of the monkey lost color while copied down on the blank decal sheet.
On the rear side are graffiti decals made by Blair Lines.
This is a brass model of an 86' Hi-Cube Box Car for CP Rail.

Thanks to Albert Mader for painting and weathering this model.

Special thanks to Peter Schönenberger for this unique box car and the custom made monkey graffiti.

Thanks to Kim Nipkow, who placed the other 3 graffiti decals from Blair Line.

no question, once again Peter Schönenbergre made a fantastic job


D) Special Graffiti with a Cat (from real thing to an HO model)
Photo of this car was taken in Revelstoke, BC (Canada) by Markus Senn in 2013.

This is an Atlas Tank Car.

Thanks to Markus Senn for the original photo.
