12/29/20011 Finally, another update!

I know, it's been forever and a day since my last entry. Well the holidays are what they are and I've been busy. That's not to say I haven't been doing anything train-related. Far from it. In fact I seem to have developed an inexplicable passion for custom-painting/decaling rolling stock. The first car I did was this cheapie Lima/PMI caboose I picked up from eBay for a few bucks.


I stripped off the factory paint and painted the whole thing Floquil Caboose Red accept for the steps which I did in Testors Chromate. I added window inserts and fogged them with Dulcote to hide the empty interior and whipped up some Southern decals.
