MEC Hopper

While visiting Cambridge, NY last fall (Don wanted a group of detailed photos of the station since he has a kit of it to build) I wandered down the track and came across this MEC piece of work equipment. Although the lighting was getting really low I did take a few photos of it anyhow. This car does not fall into my modeling era but it might be in yours...enjoy...George Dutka

  1. Very cool George. I have this car partially built using an old E&B Valley kit, although I was planning to number it 1001 and include the pine tree herald on placard as it was pictured on the Mtn Division in the 1970s. Hard to believe it is still in MEC letters and green paint, and not even that rusty really. The green is so dark in the 1970s images I have that it almost appears black. No doubt it was painted green based on your pictures though. Paint must be at least 35 years old.
