    I'm surprised by how some Forums don't show much activity. Southern. E-L. Wabash. These weren't small companies. Their names are known world wide. Surely there's a follower, or two, amongst the thousands of registered TrainBoarders?

    You got one here. As a matter of fact maybe you could give me a little help.
    I'm trying to repaint and letter some old Athearn HO Passenger cars from various lines to Wabash. All of the cars are "Pullman Green" or a close approximation. I've removed the old names, numbers, etc. with Solvaset, and now want to repaint and reletter with some MicroScale and Champ Wabash decals I've acquired. My problem is the painting. Don't have an airbrush so I'm trying to find either a can of commercial spray, you know the "rattle can" variety that will come close to the Wabash blue or some way to brush on an acrylic and still make it look smooth.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Walbash fan. My great uncle Hermon Capshaw was a fireman on #702 hudson from 1951 to 1953. We built a model of this engine in 1968. I just finished a restore on it. I will post restore pics on it in the member gallery shortly. James French e-mail cars4857656971@hotmail.com

    We need someone to keep this forum alive. Maybe start a roster topic with an image or two every week.

    Any Wabash fans left.

    You may have noticed that my user name is North Missouri Railroad.

    The North Missouri Railroad built the right of way that eventually became the Wabash right of way and used today by the Norfolk Southern.


    I model the line during the Wabash transition era.

    I live a stones throw from the old Wabash Columbia, MO spur. It is now operated by the Columbia Terminal (COLT). The sound of the GP10 moving about in the morning is music to my ears.

    I also live in Columbia, Missouri - I love the Wabash too. But I don't have a layout; boss won't let me have one in the house or garden.

    Norm-

    The boss won't let you put that Esq to work, and use a bit of eminent domain?

    Well, that's a real shame. I'm fortunate in that Management is not only allowing, but supportive and enjoys watching me play with my toys. :)

    I am building a layout based on the Wabash Columbia branch set in the summer of 1964. It is far from finished.

    That looks pretty slick to me. Is that the MFA silo's and are you doing this in HO?

    I presume you're from the area?
