NP 10000 Series Boxcars by Rapido
A couple notes about the excellent Rapido HO NP boxcars in the 100000-13999 series.
The January issue of Railroad Model Craftsman has a nine page, 20 photo article by Chris Frissell that describes simple but highly effective weathering for this common steam era car. The article leans a little more towards the 1960s, but many of the techniques could apply to the Steam era.
Additionally, just a reminder, the NPRHA ordered custom road numbers from Rapido for the second run, and those acclaimed boxcars can be found in the NPHRA store for prices well below MSRP:

Finally, the NPRHA also offers Cartograf printed HO decals including authentic chalk marks and common stencils for this car series, here:
