Snapshot - February 2020

A still clean boxcar that is only a couple of months old at Utica, NY on Jan 23 2020. Peter Mumby photo.
This months Snapshot is some of the rolling stock Peter Mumby and I saw on our way to Springfield last month. One train surprised us with a number of new pieces of rolling stock...enjoy...George Dutka

Peter and I hung around East Syracuse, NY on Jan. 23, 2020 on our way to Springfield. There was a WB train waiting to depart that we got a few shots of trailers we don't see a lot of in Ontario. Peter Mumby photo.

In a string of reefers on a WB freight in Utica, NY. was a few brand new cars scattered throughout. I think between Peter and I we shot them all, Jan. 23, 2020.
More new cars..
Two more new cars together. Peter Mumby photo.
A ghosting logo on a railbox car. I believe there is a ghost HO model boxcar of this type of lettering but with a lot less graffiti. This car was on a WB train at Utica, NY Jan. 23, 2020. I believe we caught three maybe four trains including Amtrak in total during our visit to Utica.
This might be a neat car to model. The numbering and lettering is just a ghost image now. The car still has the ACI label. This car was in the NECR yard Palmer, Mass. Jan. 24, 2020.
I did a similar effect when removing a dry transfer on a air-slide hopper recently.
