A CP Rust Bucket

An overhead view of my new acquisition.
I purchased this covered hopper this fall at the Kitchener train show from Chris Wright. It is a really nicely weathered car. Not sure why Chris wanted to unload it (maybe something to do with the new Rapido offerings out now) as he models CP through Northern New England into Maine...but I am happy to have it. I recall Chris telling me a solution which is actually real rust was painted on the car...George Dutka

A view of both sides of this interesting looking covered hopper.


  1. Yikes! I would say the car is only two steps away from the torch! I love it!

    1. No torch for this car and I doubt any paint either Scott...George
