    Also, This AHM 3-bar hopper was stripped painted and letters using ancient Walthers decals to make this L&N 37722. Could use a little weathering, still.

    That covered hopper looks like an old ConCor one I had many years ago. Made a nice bit of variety in my grain train when at the time it was full of Athearn PS-2 and ACF cars with one McKean ACF.

    Tried my hand at weathering. I used an old boxcar in case I messed up.

    That's weathered, dare I say distressed?:eek:

    It looks like something that was left out in a field and used as a storage shed. Perfect.(y)

    I looks like some I see in the old industrial areas of big cities. Mostly used for storing junk.

    Accurail ACF hopper, it has all kind of things wrong with it for being in Chemical service. Need pneumatic valves and small roof hatches, can’t find pneumatic valves anywhere for these, not even 3D printed.

    Might have to repaint for grain service.
