|The newest milk car on the White River Division roster is seen in Bellows Falls.|
These cars came to the MEC in 1918 numbered in the series 1506-1525, 20 cars. At that time they were double sheathed but by 1932 were converted into outside braced milk cars. Three cars, 1510, 1513 and 1517 received steel ends, frames and roofs in 1954. They remained in service till about 1962.
On Bruce's milk car he mainly scratch-built the model but used some Athearn reefer parts such as ends and underframe. The car is painted Accu-paint #26 MEC Pine Green and did receive some nice weathering. I normally add my own touchs to the cars I have on the layout, but this one is staying just the way Bruce modeled it...George Dutka
