On my last trip to Zionsville Train Depot, I picked up a couple sorry looking Lionel Large Scale pieces. One was this 40' box car. Was horribly painted in boxcar red with self adhesive number decals on it. I removed those, lightly sanded the worst areas of the body and spray bombed the car in BN Cascade green. I found some O scale BN decals for hopper cars on ebay that would be large enough to look decent. Still need to seal the decals up with gloss coat, but that is a couple days away when everything is dried and cured. Mike.
