Attached is a low-rez photo of an Intermountain 70-ton AAR bulkhead flat I modified to represent a B&O P-25D.  The car represents 1 of 50 built at B&O’s Dubois PA shops in 1959 wearing stenciling that’s about a year later than the 6-61 reweigh date. 


A light application of Turpenoid and black, oil-based powder, was brushed on the laser-cut deck and ends as a base coat.  All subsequent weathering to the deck, sides and ends was done with MANY layers of powders ranging from red to orange to dark grey.


An article on how to make this car, including the hardware locker on the “A” end, will appear in Issue 52 of the B&O Modeler to be published later this year.  Here's the link to that site:  Really interesting articles from previous issues are available for download.
