CNR 1950's Piggy-back Trailer - N Scale

Not much needed to be done to this model other than some deck work.
Another second hand find was this Atlas N scale piggy-back flat with 1950's loads. The flat car deck is painted boxcar red. I decided to make it look more like weathered wood decking. I gave it a coat of Floquil grime which was done with a small brush. I followed up with some lighter coloured Bragdon powders. The trailers got a light coat of powders to tone down the shine...George Dutka

This loaded car is ready for the road. One detail I think is a bit out of scale are the stirrups. I am not sure if they make replacements in N Scale, but if they do they might get changed out.
