|Peter and I each lettered a CPR caboose for the International of Maine division. Our models are seen in the WRJ yard.|
On my True Line Trains model I scraped off the numbering. The plastic is actually the body colouring so not a lot to hide. The Canadian Pacific appears to be in a good location. I used a CDS Int. of Maine Div. dry transfer from set no. 498. I had this lettering leftover from my 60' boxcar project. Peter supplied me with some numbering from leftover CDS CP caboose sets.
I also added Black Cat CPR storm doors and a Juneco conductor. Some light weathering was done using Bragdon dark rust on the sides and soot on the roof with some wall steaking.
Peter began his project with a CPR Juneco kit which had been built many decades ago. He removed the numbering and applied CDS International of Maine lettering and new numbering. He is looking at also adding a storm door...George Dutka
