C of G freight equipment start appearing with the rectangular monogram in June of 1934.

Great work on a sweet model, Fenton! Thank you for sharing.


I’ve got one in my stash to build but I need to create decal artwork for the as-built lettering. You can see the difference when you zoom in on C of G 57611 captured in this circa 1926 image of the Duke University campus construction.


Does anyone know when these C of G ventilated boxcars received the updated lettering displayed on Fenton’s model?

Just finished this vent boxcar.  It was released by the C of G HS and produced by Jim King.  Excellent kit and fun to build.  Here in Pinehurst the Southern Piedmont Rwy shops have built 2 vent boxcars.
