Ex - Santa Fe

This covered hopper was on a WB CN freight passing Aldershot yard at Burlington, Ont. on Sept. 6, 2019.

Some inspiration for modeling a current era covered hopper. I saw this ex-Santa Fe on my way to an old timers basketball tournament in Burlington. There is a nice high spot berm behind the IKEA store and in their parking lot that gives one a nice view of passing trains...George Dutka 

One can see the past lettering bleeding through the paint. There is a neat rust pattern starting on the old lettering.

It appears the new lettering is patched on but the old numbering is left on RCPE 316709.
