|A new addition to my milk car fleet, a wooden can car from F&C.|
H.P. Hood's used 40' milk cars leased from GPEX numbered in the 807-849 series. Cars known through photo evidence are 807,808,809,811,813,814,815,817,818,823 and 824.
I began by clipping the pins on the Kadee couplers then painted acrylic cinnamon brown. It took two coats of flat finish from a spray bomb to dull the surface. I then used PanPastel raw umber shade along the bottom edges and end along with the roof walkway. I very light coat of PanPastel blender was used over the entire car...George Dutka
